Little ones will be drawn to these bright colored bells which can be played by as many as eight children as individual resonator bells, or by one child as an eight-note set!  -Randy

Brightly colored C-c diatonic bell set with transparent case, included one pair of mallets. Bells may be individually removed. Pair of mallets included.

Why did you choose this?
West Music Store
As a music therapist, I use this instrument with my students with special needs. We use them to improve speech, fine motor skills, auditory tracking, turn taking and more.

Cheaper than the fancy ones - works well enough!

Good sound quality great for improvising on the pentatonic scale and they match the same colors of the children hand bells so my charts will match both instruments
Heather O on Apr 25, 2014
I like that it has a case and that the bells can be removed and reordered. This allows easy pentatonic play.

I am trying to make matching colored circles for note heads but haven't bought the set . Are the colors seen the real actually colors for the notes? Is it a pink/purple? would you call it pink or would you call it purple for pitch b?
Are these bells individually tuned perfectly like some resonator bars?
Collen wrote that she liked the standard coloring of the bells. I am not sure what she meant by that comment? i know they somewhat match boomwacker coloring but what else?
rabe c on Aug 18, 2012
Best Answer: Yes, the color are exactly as seen: remember the 2 Cs are red. Since they took out the dark blue for display purposes, it is A. The B is a purple.
The pitch on these bells is very good- you will be pleased and especially for the price!
I wish the Boomwhackers had used the same exact color formation.
For ideas using tone bells and boomwhackers (the ideas are interchangeable) , go to FunMusicCo.

How does one use this for music therapy with dementia, vent/sleep state patients, geriatrics with language and movement issues? Thanks. Shoshana
s s on Jan 28, 2013
Best Answer: I am not sure where you are in your studies of Music Therapy but I do know that every instrument can be used in therapy if it fits the needs of your goals for the patient. This question is much to broad for this venue. I suggest asking a professor, or reading case studies with this type of diagnosis.
