Boxed Handchimes Holding a handchime

Handchimes were developed in the early 1980s as a more affordable alternative to conventional handbells. Sharing the same basic characteristics as handbells, handchimes are a versatile and durable musical instrument now finding favour with organisations and groups of all kinds around the world. Designed to stand up to the hardest of treatment in the classroom and in all aspects of music therapy, these precision tuned, carefully engineered instruments represent excellent value wherever a ringing instrument is being considered.

Handchimes are manufactured from matt-coated aluminium which cannot corrode

Notes with sharps and flats are black as on a keyboard for easy recognition
Damping of the sound is easy achieved with a touch on the body

Individual chimes may be purchased to augment standard sets
