      I bought this to use in an instrumental ensemble at church, and I was pretty pleased with it until I tried playing it with my husband's trumpet part. Some of the bars aren't quite in tune, which you may not notice playing by yourself, but you may with others. The tone is very brilliant with the plastic mallets it comes with, but you can get a lovely, more muted tone with rubber mallets--or by wrapping a wide rubber band (like you get on vegetables) around the plastic heads. The bars are pretty close together, and sometimes hitting a lower bar will cause it to bounce up and clank against an upper bar. Also, sometimes when I'm aiming for the high G, I hit the raised edge of the case instead. The bars are engraved with note names, which is handy for the "white key" notes but can be confusing when you're playing in a key with flats--the "black key" bars only have the sharp note name (A# rather than A#/Bb). But it's light, very portable, and pretty good-sounding. Overall, a good value with a few drawbacks.

      Well, these bells are very piercing in tone, and are very unpleasing to the ear. And more than that, the piercing tones that come out of this crapbox when its played, sustain forever, so one can not play parts with more than one note. I wish I bought one of those Nady Mics instead.

          Comments about Lyons 25-Note (G-G) Bell Set with Case:

          I ran into this by accident while roaming around MF.
          I thought the price was right, and the reviews were overall positive.
          Watching a music video a day or so later, I saw what appeared to be this exact instrument being played live on stage.
          Too much of a coincedence?
          I oredered, it arrived quicker than I thought, and checking against a tuner, all notes were in.
          It looks a little 'toyish', but sounds great!

                  Lovely tone, perfect to accent some of our church choral pieces without investing in handbells. Love it. Now I'm getting more for family gifts to wd can all play them at a Christmas gathering.

                  Comments about Lyons 25-Note (G-G) Bell Set with Case:

                  I purchased this set over 2 yrs ago and use it in church services regularly. I used it last night, actually. I dig it. I've played with many other musicians and have found that the notes are spot on. A great bargain. The notes do have a high register, but, I find that it helps cut through the mix. Very pleased.

                  Comments about Lyons 25-Note (G-G) Bell Set with Case:

                  I just got this and am just blown away by it. For the money, this is probably the best instrument I've ever seen. I got this just to mess around with and try to copy some Sigur Ros songs, but I could really see it being used by devoted musicians. The sound quality is much better than I expected. The ONLY complaint I have is that it is a little on the small side (but that does make it extremely portable). I highly recommend this xylophone.

                  I purchashed this xylophone because of the price, not wanting to spend alot for a small part in a christmas program. It did more than I or anyone else expected. I am very pleased with the product and would recommend it to use in any type of music.

                  Comments about Lyons 25-Note (G-G) Bell Set with Case:

                  The tuning on this set is incredibly good. I got it out of the box to show my mom and she was captivated so I gave it to her and got another one. Bottom line is it plays very nicely and the case is good quality plastic (which it came in other colors too but oh well). The only issue I have is I wish the plates were slightly further apart so my bad playing weren't so obvious but this is a great deal. Incredible value. Priced like the garbage you get at the discounters but plays like a real musical instrument.
