Agogo: Since each bell is hand-forged, each will have its own unique tone. Traditionally used to mark the beat for ceremonies, this bell is one of the most important parts of many percussion ensembles. Easily hand held; or ready for stand attachment (use your own stand and hardware). Produces various open and closed sounds; try dampening the bell against your leg while you play. Please note: this agogo bell will be prone to rust, due to the material used and the climate in which it is stored.
