If you thought the only thing coming out of Meductic Canada were premium-grade cymbals, you can now add chimes to the list. Sabian's new Bar Chimes are the perfect percussive add-on to your drum set or hand drum setup.
Available in either delicate-sounding aluminum bars or with the full sound and sustain of bronze bars, the Bar Chimes are suspended from a solid wood bar that can be mounted on a cymbal stand or other screw-top holder. Each bar has 24 chimes that produce a shimmering response, in a cascading effect that is perfect for all types of music.
Said the company's master product specialist Mark Love: “Bar chimes are popular with drummers and percussionist of all styles, from orchestral to hard rock. These Sabian models offer professional design and sound, with a solid oak bar and chime ties of high-strength nylon, and of course high-quality bars.”
The bar Chimes are backed by the Sabian's two-year warranty and come with a protective carrying case.
