      Adds a radical new voice to your setup!

      The Alu Bell features a dome-shape and narrow striking edge. Aluminum creates a clear and musical bell-like response and is very lightweight to produce long, sustaining notes. Every Alu Bell is individually created using traditional sand-casting methods, so each piece has a rough surface. Aluminum Bells are comparatively thick and have an unfinished look, but their tone is very sweet and musical, with great sustain. They are also quality protected by the Sabian one-year warranty.

      Okay, for anyone who thinks this bell rings too much, here is a solution. turn it upside down( like it's supposed to be)and place it on top of your ride with a felt pad between them. add another felt on top of the bell and tighten you wing nut, or whatever kind of nut you use, down as tight as it will go. this mutes the ring and gives you the sound you need. Be careful about how hard you hit it with it only being cast aluminum.

      I heard someone playing this in a local drum store, and it sounded like a bell. That's it, just a bell, a high pitched bell. He's a drummer for a metal band, so I'm sure he might use it, but how often. I don't think it's even worth spending the money to put this thing on a stand.

            Very cool 7" bell overall.
            Needs some muting though, tends to ring for a long time. Bought some moongel after placing on top of my ride and it's good to go.

            Ring's awesomely!

            Comments about Sabian Alu Bell:

            Ok, just like the other reviews this bell does ring a lot. But that is when it is just hit by its self. While playing, the ring gets drowned out by everything else. I play in a Grind-core band right now, (really fast annoying noise) and it works great. The thing is perfect for accenting a harmonic on the guitar or an entrance to a breakdown. I wouldn't suggest riding on it because it doesn't sound quite right. But it you have about $60 and you want to add to your set with a new sound, this is a good by.P.S. If you have annoying dogs where you live, hit this thing and chase them with the bell, the'll hate it.

            Not bad, just not what you'd expect

            from Undisclosed

            Comments about Sabian Alu Bell:

            These aren't your typical metal/deathmetal bells that people seem to be expecting to hear, like the ones Chris Adler or any of those guys use. These are actual bells with a sustaining and distinct note. Much less for busy playing (unless you taped the hell of of it to mute it) More to add just a different kind of texture.

            this cymbal sucks. its not good at all. me and my dad went from lakeland to orlando looking for a mienl bell and i just thought thst since they didnt have any of those that i might as well get the sabian alu. bell. worst decision of my life but if you are stupid enough to buy this but a butt load of tape all over it cuz it rings forever and is annoying so do the world a favor and dont buy it maybe sabian will get the idea that thier cymbals suck and stop making them

            I used my friends alu bell, hoping to get some nice bell tone similar to a Zil...but I sounded like I was playing on a piece of metal pipe!! Do not buy this it rings forever and drowns out the whole set!

            Comments about Sabian Alu Bell:

            It's probably the most useless thing I've ever spent money on for my kit. I only keep it on because it sounds funny. It's not musical at all, so it's really only useful if you do weird sound affects for movies, which I doubt you do.

            Well once when I was small I ran into a flag pole. This sounds exactly like that. I used someones, I don't think I would get it unless it was on sale ring a bit to much maybe some tape would fix that but i dunno.

            Comments about Sabian Alu Bell:

            If so thats exactly what it sounds like. I wanted to buy a cheap bell for a good ping and this isnt the bell for that. Its rings WAY to long and just overall doesnt sound to good. I wouldnt ever buy it again or replace it.

            GREAT SOUNDING BELL

            By DrumDestroyer

            from Teays Valley, WV

            Comments about Sabian Alu Bell:

            I got this yesterday, and the thing is thick, loud, and rings forever. I got the 7" and I love it! Its a little rough, looks as though it was just quickly cast, then they smoothed off only the edges, dont expect a perfectly smooth cymbal when you get this. Its great though! I just put some duct tape on the bottom, to cut down the sustain a bit, and I love it!
