Here we are! As we finally get started on new the new adventures mentioned in my last post and have had time to catch my breath, I am in a joyful mood. Naturally, this catalyzed my craving for creative composition.
A couple weeks ago I left you on a cliffhanger after taking apart a Schulmerich handbell and explaining its anatomy.
Now, it's time to see if we can put our poor C4 handbell back together again.
During the filming of the Auld Lang Syne new year video I encountered a minor disruption when the restraining spring broke inside the F3. This rendered the instrument unplayable. Fortunately, I had the proper part, tools, and knowledge to quickly get up and running.
While I work to expand the accessibility of handbells and musicianship, it is a privilege to also expand the literal range of handbell instruments I get to use in that mission.
