This strikingly unique Black Metal Bell is a fun, versatile cymbal hand-cast from heavy B20 bronze. The top surface has a dark, earthy, raw finish that contributes to its thick, focused, dry sound. The cymbal has a smooth lathed underside that allows it to pierce through the music with a brilliant resonance and a lengthy sustain. The large bell levels off into the lip.
Because Black Metal Bells are hand-crafted, each one has a subtly varied shape and its own personality with individual tonality, volume, and colorations producing several unique voices, depending on where and how you strike it.
BMB cymbals can also be stacked, played like mini-hats, inverted above larger cymbals, or held in the hand and played like percussion instruments.
The smaller diameter cymbals are higher pitched while the larger ones are darker, with the 7" versions having a wider range of pitch variation. The lighter versions have thinner sounds.

I got the 6" light. The quality is excellent. This is a bell that will last forever. It has a great sound and many options on how to play it. It has a great sound. I really don't see the point on spending more on a bell from another brand even if you are not on a budget. If you want to pay four times the price for your bell to say Zildjian on it, go ahead. That is the only extra you wil get for your money. This bells are handmade and all slightly different which for me is a plus. Highly recommended.
I had the 7" medium bell and it did not sound good. It sounded bad. It is loud and rings for a long time but it just dont sound good. The Zil-bel is the best bell, save your money and get that because it sounds incredible!
I ordered it about a month ago, and I think it's great. . They sound so much better than both Zel-Bells. I got the 7"light bell. I like how dark the sound is. I can't wait to get the other two 7" bells
It's a really good bell,and the price was very affordable.I like the bright sound it has.I play it daily.The only thing that i don't like about it is it has to long of a delay instead of being real quick.It think it holds out to long,but other than that it is an awesome bell.I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a bell with out a very big budget.
I recently got the 7" heavy bell, and its basicly perfect. Im going to compare it to a zilbel because thats seems to be the standard eveyone trys to live up to. No, it does not sound like the zilbel, it has many clashing tones whereas zilbels are more pure sounding. Its also loud as hell, very piercing, maybe only a little less than zilbels because the pitch is lower, but it cuts straight through my band. And plus is like half the cost. so yeah, stagg....
I purchased the 7'' heavy bell a few weeks ago online hoping it would be decent. I can tell you with all honesty that it sounds just like the zil-bel, but it is way better because it's a third of the cost. If you play breakdowns, it provides the perfect 'ding' just right before going into the most brutal sounds your guitarists can muster. A very wise purchase for any drummer, but especially one on a budget.
Stagg products are really very good. I've got two DH Crashes and its awesome! they really got me and I don't want other brand and now I've got this bell and I'm very satisfied.
