Bell & Ross


  • A bell is a simple idiophone percussion instrument

Bell & Ross facts

  • Although bells come in many forms, most are made of metal cast in the shape of a hollow cup, whose sides form a resonator which vibrates in a single tone upon being struck
  • The strike may be made by a "clapper" or "uvula" suspended within the bell, by a separate mallet or hammer, or—in small bells—by a small loose sphere enclosed within the body of the bell
  • Bells are usually made by casting metal, but small bells can also be made from ceramic or glass
  • Bells range in size from tiny dress accessories to church bells 5 metres tall, weighing many tons
  • Historically, bells have been associated with religious rituals, and are still used to call communities together for religious services
  • Later, bells were made to commemorate important events or people and have been associated with the concepts of peace and freedom
  • The study of bells is called campanology
  • A set of bells, hung in a circle for change ringing, is known as a ring or peal of bells
  • A set of 23 bells spanning at least two octaves is a carillon
