25 note; 2 chromatic octave range beginning with G below middle C. The extended range allows for the rich bass tone desired in resonator bells. The bells are in a solid black, with plastic individual resonator boxes; polyvinyl case with removable top. 25 mallets included.

Invaluable resource for working on harmony, scale degrees, and providing each one holding a bar with a fixed pitch to help match their voice to. Sound quality of plastic is adequate for educational purposes, especially with young children.
Similar bells at my school are worn out or broken. I find this type of bell set very versatile as each bell is individual and so they can be combined to play ostinati or chords. I also like the large number of accidentals that come with this kit.
Best Answer:Yes, Barbara. I just went to my set to see if there was a difference with the sound when the bars are out of the case, and when they're in the case. The difference in resonance is negligible, in my opinion, for general use. The metal bars rest on their rubber pegs slightly above the tray's dividers. Hope this helps! I like my set a lot and feel that I got a good value for general use with older preschoolers and young elementary students. ~Carrie
