This Percussion Plus handheld bell tree comprises 14 brass bells, or bowls, which range in pitch and are mounted roughly in order on a wooden handle. A glissando effect can be produced by running the supplied mallet across the bells in a down or upward motion. Alternatively, the bells can also be struck individually, with players able to experiment with different melodies and rhythms.
The instrument creates a bright and shimmering sound and is often used to accentuate the start or end of passages of music.
