With a spring and two steel bars, in addition to the thin steel head-type surfaces, this set of satellite bells will provide extraordinary sonic possibilities.
The Pete Engelhart Satellite Bell consisists of 2 handmade metal bells plus 2 steel bars and a spring that provide a variety of intriguing metallic sounds when you strike the different surfaces. A mounting bracket is included.
Gon Bops is proud to present Pete Engelhart custom percussion instruments. Made one at a time in his Berkeley, California shop, each bell is handcrafted by Pete Engelhart himself and stamped with his signature. Each Gon Bops bell is hand-welded and left raw, with only a clear coat to protect the metal's surface. The instruments are then pitch-tuned by Pete's discerning ear. More like sonic works of art, Engelhart bells only grow sweeter with age. No two bells are alike, and each one is painted red on the inside, Pete's signature color.
All of Pete's Gon Bops bells are fitted with the patented Gon Bops V-Clamp mounting system, which provides strength and versatility.
Highly regarded as one of the most innovative percussion makers in recent times, Pete Engelhart has made a name for himself among drumming's elite.
