Handbell Starter Kits
Everything you need to get your choir up and ringing! We understand that there are many details involved in setting up a handbell choir. With this in mind, we have created our handbell Starter Kits. Designed to help you with all those little details that make starting a choir challenging, these kits contain almost everything you need--from foam to polish to music and instruction--to start ringing the right way!
Each Starter Kit Includes:
- Foam: The most important part of your table setup, foam helps protect your handbells from damage done by hitting the table top. 4" foam is included, as it offers the best protection when performing table techniques.
- Gloves: Our UltimaGloves feature reinforced areas at the thumb, index finger, and middle finger, as well as a comfortable elastic wrist band with Velcro fastener. Choose from black or white with plastic dots or without. Sizes range from x-small to x-large.
- Notebook Music Stands: Our Notebook Stands not only hold your music, they also fold back to form a handy stand! Choose from 1" or 1.5" rings, in either standard (holds 8.5"x11" music) or oversize (holds music up to 9"x12").
- Mallets: Constructed from top quality materials, such as unbreakable fiberglass shafts, soft 100% wool yarn, and durable nylon, our TruTimbre Mallets are designed to get the best possible sound from your handbells.
- Polish: To keep your handbells in tip-top shape, each kit includes polishing cloths for everyday cleaning and polish and cleaning cloths for those times when your bells need a more thorough cleaning. We'll also include a Maintenance Manual for your bells.
- Instructional Resources: Each starter kit includes several texts and videos that will have your choir ringing musically in no time: Successful Ringing Step by Step(video and text),Learning to Ring Director's Manual by Janet Van Valey and Sue Berry, and Mastering Musicianship in Handbells by Donald Allured.
