Weiss Chromatic Saucer Bell Set with Mallet - Product Information

This full octave (13 notes) of chromatically tuned saucer bells fill the need for tuned bells at an incredible price. The bells come setup like a tuned bell tree on a string, but can be removed to play individually on a string, on a pad inverted, as a chromatic set, put back onto string in different scales; the possibilities are endless.

  • Includes small brass headed mallet.
  • Range: C7 to C8

Love these bells, but I want moar!

Comments:

I love the sound of these bells. They're a relieve for the gigging percussionist. I too will be remounting them in horizontally on a homebrew stand. Please please please consider also making a "low octave" version.

Excellent Product

Comments:

I am on a tight budget. Most musical shows I've been recently playing require crotales and bell tree. This is an alternative for both. Although it is not an exact match, it is very close.

Interesting

Comments:

The range of these bells is actually C7-C8, same as a high octave of crotales. I wrote a blog post about mounting these bells on a homemade stand.

Good bells

Comments:

Overall, I'm very satisfied with these bells, especially for the price. They're in good tune (or at least good enough), are solidly made, and project enough to fit with my setup. My only issues are with the holes through which the bells are strung: They're very rough, and nowhere near uniform in size. I wanted to restring the bells to space them out more, and that turned out to be hard because the cord kept getting caught and sometimes frayed on the rough/sharp edges. Also, one bell was holed off-center, so hangs on the cord like a drunk uncle. All in all, though, they're good bells for the money.

Surprising quality

Comments:

I use bells in the performance of medieval music. Considering the relatively low cost of these bells, I was surprised to find that the tuning was accurate--not the case with the set I was using before. It would be nice if the range was a bit wider, but they are certainly usable as they are. I remounted them in horizontal "keyboard order," but that was easy enough. Thank you.
