Introducing the Percussion Plus Honestly Made Indian bells – pair

Also known as manjïrà (manjeera) chimes, these bells are a traditional percussion instrument of India. The chimes are hit together to form a high-pitched ringing sound that cuts through the air, whether as an addition to a larger ensemble or by itself.

The chimes have a simple design yet appear not only to be aesthetically beautiful but aurally too. The dark cord that connects the two bells barely affects the bells vibrations, allowing a rich and long-lasting tone. These bells are often used in folk and devotional music, particularly in Gujarati and Marathi traditions.

These Indian bells are sourced using Fair trade principles. See below for more information about the Honestly Made range of musical instruments from Percussion Plus.

These items are musical instruments, not toys, and there may be small parts on or in some of them. Younger players should use them under supervision.

A multitude of uses

The high pitched ‘ting’ of these Indian bells can be used to aid meditation as well as sound therapy and ‘clearing’ of rooms. They have also found a place in many modern orchestral works and as a sound effect in many recordings. Their tactile beauty and complex tones are a sensory experience for all generations.
