Percussion Instruments

Percussion Instruments

We offer non-pitched, hand-held percussion instruments to complement handbell/handchime choirs.  These selections do not overwhelm the choir --   each instrument has been carefully selected from a variety of brands and styles, and tested by several handbell ensembles.  We offer less choices -- but each perfectly fits with almost every piece written for bell and chimes.

Quality instruments for quality ensembles.  You'll notice the difference.
