      Comments about Overseas Connection Ghana Single Bell with Stick:

      I gave this bell a 4 because of the manufacturing funk that was still on it and a couple of rust spots. Not a big deal. It cleaned up nicely with some dish soap and a green scrubber pad. Car wax should work fine to protect the bare steel and shouldn't choke the tone. I found that different sticks could help bring out the different overtones and it would play with even a large bamboo skewer (great for recording and practice.) The closed end and the tang produce higher pitched bell/piano/kalimba-like tones and the open end produces a lower tone, which I could get to make a sweet cowbell sound by touching it to my leg as I played. This is a unique handmade instrument and every one will be different. Use for Afro/Latin/Brasil/funk/rock wherever you need a bell. You can't beat this Great-great- great Grandaddy of the modern bell designs. I'm happy with my purchase and especially the price.

      Beautiful Tones

      By John L.--b3SV

      from Poughkeepsie NY

      Comments about Overseas Connection Ghana Single Bell with Stick:

      I've been playing with this bell for about 2 weeks now. It does not sound like a cowbell. The tones are far more resonant and the bell has at least to sweet spots. There are 2 areas for scraping the beater. The softwood beater that is provided gets some great sounds, as do latin percussion sticks. Typical drumsticks don't sound as good, but the best sounds come from a hard mallet, at least 2.5 notes (I used the Travis Barker hybrid stick mallets). This might be tough to work into some bands, but since I'm doing experimental heavy music, I'm not too concerned. Attaching it to my cymbal stands is going to be a problem though.
