Description
Traditional gankogui (African agogo bells) with a stacked configuration; medium size (approx. 10"-11" long). Made in Togo and Ghana by blacksmiths using hand bellows and rudimentary forges. Since each bell is hand-forged, each will have its unique tone. The sizes will also vary; the smaller bell is about 2.5" diameter and the larger bell about 3.5" diameter. Traditionally used to mark the beat for ceremonies, this bell is one of the most important parts of many percussion ensembles. It produces various open and closed sounds, with a brighter tone than the Nigerian agogo bell. Try dampening the bell against your leg while you play. Easily handheld; or ready for stand attachment (use your stand and hardware). Wooden striker included.

  • nice bell
    This gankogui is excellent for the two things I need most: an upper elementary drum class instrument & an instrument for church services that is not too overwhelming. I purchased 3 of them, and they sound excellent together. There were some jarring overtones in one of the upper bells, but since each is handmade, I guess it's 'luck of the draw'. If you are looking for an outdoor instrument, this isn't it. If you want a higher, ringing tone that settles into an ensemble, this is a good choice.
