Bells

The particularly large tube diameter, extra thick walls and tubes closed at both ends produce the exceptionally pure tonal quality, unique volume of sound and the very long reverberation of the "Concert" series. The very strongly rounded contact head provides the bell hammer with an enlarged contact surface, creating a warm tonal character and hugely increasing the bell's volume. This volume rich tone with clear, bell like attack and rich resonance perfectly imitates the tonal characteristics of a cast church bell, making it both tonally and in terms of transport a very good alternative. All "Concert" tubular bells in the f1 - f3/F4-B4 (2 octaves) range are also individually available. Upon request bells can be custom made in the range from c1 - e1/C4-E4 and f#3 - c4/F#6-C7.

 

Note on pitch/notation

Notation: f - f2/F3-F5
Pitch: one octave higher (f1 - f3/F4-F6)

From Karl Peinkofer in the "Handbuch des Schlagzeugs" (2nd edition 1981, pg. 75): "The definition "pitch as written" refers to the reverberation sound, as in the tonal blend of the attack the upper octave dominates."

 

Quality features

The contact head of the bell is connected to the tube by a special process meaning that it cannot become loose through vibrations occurring during playing, causing disturbing noises or becoming detached. The particularly strongly rounded, therefore increased contact surface of the bells, the unusually thick walls (3.5 mm), the especially large tube diameter and tubes closed at both ends produce the exceptionally rich tonal quality, the volume of sound and the bell like character of the Kolberg "Concert" tubular bells, which in design are unique on the world market.

 

Tubular bell suspension

We use specially woven, heavy duty nylon cords on all of our products, which are produced exclusively for Kolberg Percussion. These special, high quality cords do not cause any vibrational noise, are extremely durable and convenient to use.

 

Tubular bell stand (2458)

  • Height adjustable
  • Extremely stable tubular steel construction, scratch and impact resistant black-silver powder-coated
  • All structural components are welded and therefore completely connected, ensuring they do not warp or vibrate. The sound of the bells can develop freely and is not affected by unwanted noises caused by the stand.
  • Stable fully locking swivel casters with a solid rubber surface, height adjustable to compensate for uneven floors
  • The damping pedal uses springs ensuring it operates silently.
  • Feature: The main pillars of the tubular bell stands can be fitted with height adjustable, pivoting extension arms. These extension arms accord to the standard dimensions of the combination stand system and allow various mounting options for additional bells, instruments, music stands, trap trays etc.
  • Removable damping bars and individual suspension of the tubular bells
    A very practically orientated feature is the possibility to remove the front, diatonic, and the back, chromatic damping bars. All tubular bells can be removed horizontally from the set with ease. This offers an enormous advantage in cramped and height limited situations such as in an orchestra pit. The bells' individual suspension leads to the comfort and speed with which they can be detached. There is no need to raise two adjacent tubes in order to remove an individual tubular bell.

The ideal solution for rehearsals, concert trips, narrow orchestra pits and opera performances with few or single tubular bells!
