With a unique design and fun playability, finger cymbals work well with musicians of any age. Like drums, bells, and shakers, these finger cymbals, zills, and bells accompany other instruments, while expressing their own distinct sounds. They offer the additional benefit of helping to develop finger and thumb motor skills. Young children get a kick out of generating cheery "tings" with these instruments while older students can learn to produce a variety of ringing tones and clacking sounds.
Modern finger cymbals are light and typically made of brass, often boasting a shiny appearance. Matte or engraved finishes are also common. Most have a finger strap on each cymbal, and matching cymbals ensure a consistent sound. Zills offer a high-pitched tone with a long sustain, ensuring their sound lasts in recorded music and orchestras alike. The bell, a hand percussion instrument, is prominent through the holiday season due to its jolly sound. Finger cymbals, zills, and bells all offer their own special effect in any musical piece. These handheld percussion instruments and more are available at West Music!
