Never second guess Steve Weiss brand products

Comments:

Me being the 'doubting Thomas' thought, "No, I'm not buying a Steve Weiss bell tree, I'll go with a big name brand.". This to my detriment. I bought a Meinl bell tree from Sam Ash on Amazon for a heftier price and it showed up in pieces, washers and screws missing, with the stem of the bell tree bent in the shape of letter J. It went back straight away. Mind you, Sam Ash is quite good with their return policy and they obviously didn't open the box before shipping. So, I bought the Steve Weiss instead and it showed up on the porch just as it should in pristine perfect condition and also sounds great. Make up your own mind- I did.

Rings a bell

Comments:

Sounds great, fast delivery. Love that the rack holds the mallets. Great for storing without losing the damn things. Used in on its feet, no problem.

Not quite a bargan

Comments:

Price is great at $159.00 but quality of the bells is poor. Although they look good, the pitch isn't consistent and some bigger bells have a pitch higher than others four bells away. I think it has something to do with the thickness of each bell. The thinner the bell, the lower the pitch. Also some bells have a nice sustain in the ringing, others do not.

Weiss Bell Tree

Comments:

I purchase products from you for my son who is a high school band director and professional percussionist. He comments that, " your products are clearly the best quality and hold up extremely well." He particularly liked the feature of the bell tree that it could be mounted as needed.

good value

Comments:

At first my intention was to send this back and get the Meinl which I found out was back ordered. Earl, the extremely thorough customer service rep, modified the return "window" on these so I could use them in the show I needed them for. After doing the run they sort of wore on me and I have decided to keep them. Don't get me wrong, they do sound quite good. I feel the LP tree I compared them to sounded better, but not by much and the $100 difference just doesn't seem worth after using them. They will be on my stand for my next show starting next week.
