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

I like that it has a case and that the bells can be removed and reordered. This allows easy pentatonic play.
Laura M on Jul 27, 2013
I like the convenience of being able to choose what notes I want the kids to be able to learn, the compact case, and learning all 8 notes at once if needed.
Laurelyn A on Jun 3, 2013
I chose this instrument because I already have one and I've been pleased with how it has held up. I like that the bells are removable and it is easy to set up for pattern or ostinato playing.
Lisa R on May 3, 2013
Super fun set of resonator bells. My children love them, as do most children who come to our home and play with them. We've had ours for three years, and they are like new, of course my children play pretty gently, but I am impressed with the quality.

Therapy use. Left neglect, and hand eye coordination.
Kim N on Apr 20, 2013
A presenter at NAEYC used them and I loved the sound
Denise M on Dec 9, 2012
I am a music therapist. I have used a set with clients. My granddaughters are now old enough to be interested in them.
Judy I on Dec 7, 2012
I use this daily with my music students. I even created a curriculum of simple songs and patterns to use with this! Check it out at Rhythms For Living!
Kristen S on Dec 3, 2012
wanted a good quality bell set for autistic son. Right price, will be a Christmas present.
Rachel V on Nov 26, 2012
My daughter uses these in her music class and loves them. I am now getting these for the nieces and nephews. They are great because you can take out the chimes you want to use and they can later translate to piano.
Sonja P on Nov 26, 2012
for use in music therapy sessions - I like that the bells can be individually removed so I can create a pentatonic scale for the client

my grandson loves music
Karen W on Nov 10, 2012
Love them for my young students to learn melody.
Suzanne M on Oct 31, 2012
My daughter's music teacher highly recommended getting this item!
Jennifer M on Oct 25, 2012
I use these in an early elementary music education class when first learning the treble clef music scale. Sturdy and removable.
Janice B on Oct 23, 2012
good substitute for big barred instruments - very portable and affordable
Stephanie M on Sep 30, 2012
to have clients play in a group setting
Kella R on Sep 27, 2012
My granddaughter loved this set at a university mom and me class. she is 21 months
Beth L on Sep 26, 2012
To use in preschool/toddler music classroom. Cheaper than a full set of resonator bars, had a case, and were colorful. NICE tone! We use them a lot!
Judith L on Aug 20, 2012
Price, quality for the price and portable.
Kate T on Aug 20, 2012
The music therapist I worked with had these resonator bells and they were wonderful to use in our music therapy sessions. It was great that I could take the bells out of the case and they were easy to clean.
Megan G on Aug 16, 2012
Good sound, easy to transport, and little ones love the colors. Great for traveling early childhood teachers!
Kathy C on Jul 24, 2012
It is great because you can remove the resonators, making it easier for little children to play.
Teresa A on Jul 16, 2012
it has a great sound and easy to play
Catherine H on Jun 20, 2012
love the "standard" coloring of the bells and that I can limit the number available
Colleen M on Jun 1, 2012
Removable bells allow for each student to have one to play
Jeannie F on May 22, 2012
I am a music teacher, and I teach a program especially designed for toddlers. The kids love these and so do I!
Regina A on May 17, 2012
The tones really ring out. Each of the blocks come out separately, so more kids can play at a time, or a chord can be made without the other notes around.
Jennifer N on Mar 29, 2012

Monique B on Feb 21, 2012
I am teaching from a cart at this school so I cannot have big Orff instruments. This gives the kids a chance to do the "Mallet Madness" activities they enjoy and learn from so much, even as they sit at their desks. I can take out bars for pentatonic, which we use a lot.
Stephanie M on Feb 10, 2012
I needed more sets of bells for the class sizes that I have. They are very durable, the cases are great and the kids like the colors!
Tracy S on Jan 13, 2012
my daughter was in the hospital and music person came around with it and my daughter like it
Debra C on Dec 9, 2011
I imagine that my 3-year-old will really enjoy this. We have a glockenspiel that gets a fair amount of use, but with the fun carrying case and removable bars, this looks irresistible, and I have been pleased with the other Basic Beat products we've ordered!
Sarah M on Dec 1, 2011
We use resonator bells in my 2-year-old daughter's music class and she loves them!
Yasamin B on Nov 29, 2011

Laura M on Jul 27, 2013
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.
can you order individual notes?
Rita B on Aug 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These resonator bells are only available as a set. We do sell replacement cases.

Stephanie P on Jan 9, 2015

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.

A shopper on Dec 12, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The mallets that come with this set of bells are item 260279, and they sell for $1.95 per pair.
