Handbell
Mar 20, 2018

Handbell is a hand-cranked percussion instrument. The Handbell consists of a bell body, a handle, and a hammer. The body of the bell is the component that determines the sound of the Handbell, and it also determines the pitch of a single Handbell, usually made of copper. The handle is usually made of leather, and currently also has a plastic handle. The hammer is fixed in the body by a hinge. The handbell's loudness can be determined by adjusting the hammer. The musician can play in a variety of ways. The most common method is hand cranking. The hammer in the Handbell collides with the body and sounds. Since a single Handbell only has a specific pitch, Handbell generally contains several scale configurations.
