If you’re interested in trying before buying please send me an email and I can do that if I have any in stock. They’re very time-consuming to make, but I think the results are worth the effort.
I use white oak and walnut for the shells.
German silver: brightest and longest jingle length of the three. Super sensitive.
Brass: beautiful sound. Right in the middle of the other two metals.
Bronze: very full and clear. Somewhat dark color. Extremely responsive soft, but can easily played loud with a nice focused sound.
