Do you have more than 8 people who want to ring bells? Are your ringers ready for slightly more difficult music? An expansion kit adds 5 more bells to an existing 8 note set.
The expansion kit includes:
5 KidsPlay® handbells (# 4081)
a carrying case (# 4087)
Ring By Color volume 1 for 13 note bell sets (# MRCK1301)
a pack of 24 Achievement Certificates for colored bells (# 5297)
The 5 bells are C#/1#, D#/2#, F#/4#, G#/5#, & A#/6#. Adding sharp notes to an 8-note set opens up more musical possibilities, as many well-know songs use F# or A# in their melody lines.
[to note: color coded instruments are named using sharps (#); sharp notes raise the sound a half a tone higher than the corresponding note without a sharp but not as high as the next letter name; for example: the sound of a C# is halfway between the sound of a C and a D].
The case that comes with the expansion set will hold all 13 bells.
Volume 1 Ring By Color book for 13 note bell sets contains the songs “If You’re Happy and You Know It”, “Old McDonald Had a Farm”, “Bingo”, “Skip To My Lou”, and “Happy Birthday”.
* If you already own Ring By Color volume 1 for 8 note bell sets, please note that duplicate titles are not compatible from the 8-note book to the 13-note book. Songs from the 8-note book can still be used; just not together with the 13-note song of the same title.
