A set of six handmade bells by percussion instrument Designer, Pete Engelhart.
Gon Bops is proud to present Pete Engelhart custom percussion instruments. Made one at a time in his Berkeley, California shop, each Gon Bops bell in the 6-pack is handcrafted by Pete himself and stamped with his signature. Each Gon Bops rack 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 Engelhart'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. Artists such as Terry Bozzio, Airto, and Alex Acuna have praised his unique musical vision and have been using his groundbreaking percussion instruments on movie soundtracks and high-profile recordings for decades.

Comments about Gon Bops Pete Engelhart Rack Bells, 6:
I love my PE rack bells! They sound great no matter what type of stick I play them with. Quality construction which takes up little space and easily mounted. Easy/Logical to play using your typical RL pattern, I can hit every bell comfortably. They also sound great played by hand. This is my second PE product (Ive got his satellite bell) I certainly like the rack bells better than the satellite bell since they have a more practical sound/use. I waited to purchase the rack bells on Presidents day and received a 10% discount which made my total 270. Well worth it for such a great sounding, high quality piece which adds character, warmth and texture to any drum kit/percussion set-up. Everyone I've shared them with is blown away and loves the sound they produce. Good rythym and melodic textures = musical bliss... PE Thank You!!!
