Sleigh bells, also known as hand bells and bells on a handle, are simply that...a cluster of metal bells mounted on a wooden handle. Shake the handle for a familar jingle bells sound. The length of this instrument is about 12 inches from end to end. There are 13 bells, and they produce a nice rich big jingle bell sound.
They are an excellent addition for a school's rhythm instruments classroom, and a great choice for a church or school's holiday musical program.
