Tonehammer Circle Bells KONTAKT DVDR | 2.04GB
We spend a great deal of our time finding and/or creating new instruments that are not commonly known and the Circle Bells are no exception. We managed to get our hands on a very unique tuned percussion instrument, which is made by an artisan in the San Francisco Bay Area and can only be found in a handful of local music shops. The maker makes only one at the time, so there are very few of them available in the world. The instrument sounds somewhere between a Gamelan, Glass Waterbowl, Prayer Bowl and something extraterrestrial. It is made of an array of 6 steel cone-shaped bells, ranging from 2" to 3 1/2" in diameter and each about 10" long.
