Malmark Handbells http://www.malmark.com/

Schulmerich Handbell http://www.schulmerich.com/

We own a 5 octave set of Malmark Handbells with a range of C-3 through C-8 and a 4-Octave set of Schulmerich Handbells. Each set has its own unique characteristics and qualities. Handbells are comprised of 80% copper and 20% tin. Each bell is tuned to perfection in its own pitch. The size of the bell dictates the pitch.

Malmark Choir Chimes http://www.malmark.com/

We own a 5 octave set of choir chimes. Choirchimes® have the same basic characteristics of handbells at a more affordable price. These chimes can be used to teach the techniques of ringing and work very well for young children. They are basically a tuning fork of different lengths to produce different pitches. They work very well as an addition to create a different flavor in a piece when both chimes and bells are used.
