I recently learned of flat bells in Russia. Wondering if anyone knows what they are made of or where I could get dimensions to maybe build a set? They look to possibly be brass square plates and played with mallets. They sound nice, but I can’t seem to find information about them, just what I am able to see on youtube.
Hello! The flat bells are produced by us – the Zhikharev’s manufacture.
They are called Bila Zhikhareva. They are used for churches, for musicians, by amateurs for households, in medicine and in fontain carillons (water carillons). Our site is http://flatbells.com/
