Kolberg bell plates are distinguished by their first-class sound quality and are available in a range that is unique in the world: 5 octaves C - c4/C2-C7, available as individual pitches as well as in octave sets. They are made of exclusive bell brass and tuned to a clear harmonic (a pure octave as the first harmonic). The voluminous sound with clear, bell-like tone and rich resonance imitates optimally the sound character of cast church bells and is thus a good alternative with regard to sound, price and ease of transport. We would be glad to put together complete sets of bell plates with stands and mallets according to your wishes and specifications, e.g. for musical works as Boulez "Pli selon Pli" or as a substitute for church bells called for e.g. by Puccini in "Tosca" or Berlioz for the "Symphonie fantastique" or in other concerts and operas.
|Range||C - c4 (5 oktaves, international C2 - C7)|
|Pitch||443 Hz (other pitches on demand)|
|Material||exclusive bell brass|
|Suspension||heavy-duty nylon strings|
All edges of the bell plates are user-friendly rounded. Heavy-duty and durable special strings are used for the two-point suspension. These high-quality specially braided nylon cords, exclusively produced for Kolberg Percussion in different cross-sections, are used for all our products, as they do not cause any vibration noises and are extremely durable.
Accessories (additional price)
We offer a harmonised set of 4 bell plate hammers (846 - 849) according to the overall range of the instruments, so that you can form the characteristic bell sound. We would be glad to give advice for your individual choice.
