This was purchased on behalf of our handbell choir for a member who became very ill and has since passed away. I'm glad we bought it as he was very touched by the expression of care and the inscription we had engraved. The bell itself was beautiful and a perfect gift for the situation. I was disappointed, however, in the quality of the music box component. I can't be sure, but I think the tempo must be affected by the size of the parts that produce the song. We chose Amazing Grace (normally fairly slow and meditative) and it played the song very quickly. So, a beautiful and unique gift, but be aware the music might not play as you expect it to.
Our handbell team purchased this beautiful music box bell for one of our members who is leaving the group. We presented the bell to her after performing our last concert with her and she loved it. The engraving was done within a few days and was perfect and arrived ahead of schedule. This is a unique gift and I would highly recommend it.
Absolutely, hands-down, the best gift ever. You get a beautiful, wooden bell with an encased music box that you can have engraved. I had a students of 15 years who graduated this year and we presented the bell to her to have as a remembrance of her time with us/me and how special she is. She is taking it with her to college.
I purchased this item on behalf of our handbell choir to present to our director as a retirement gift. We spent the additional money and had it engraved, and are so pleased with how it turned out!! It shipped as promised, and arrived in a white gift box packed inside the shipping box. The product description noted is perfect. I'm so glad I stumbled upon it while I was shopping for ideas. I definitely recommend it!!
The Warther wooden bell and music box has lovely curved lines and wood grain. We especially loved the leather strap that makes it look like a real handbell! (The only disappointment was that your website excluded engraving which would've save me a lot of effort--I had to find someone locally to add an engraved plate. (But if you have a month or so, Handbell services, Inc. can send it away for engraving. I think that should be on the website.)
This was bought as a retirement gift for our director after 27 years of service. The bell was beautiful and the workmanship was fantastic. No one saw the bell before it was given to our director and all were in agreement that we couldn't have given her a better gift. Better yet she loves it and has given it a special place in her home.
The wood in the bell is beautiful and the song Ode to Joy is perfect for our recipient. She is retiring after 28 years and we're all anxious to give her this gift Dec. 16th before our program. Perfect gift for a bell choir instructor.
We bought this bell for our handbell director who is retiring. It is perfect! We were lucky to have one of the tunes be a song we have often played. Beautiful craftsmanship.
