Hzandbits has announced Bells & Bowls, a collection of 86 glass & ceramic bell sound effects in 24bit/96kHz mono.
Here are 14 different bell-like objects, each multi-sampled for maximum expressiveness, tuned to the nearest musical note and ready to drop into you favorite sampler and play away.
Ranging from only slightly complex sine waves, to strange wobbles and beat frequencies, these actual physical bowls, plates and vases had some pretty amazing musical sounds in them.
Many of them took surprisingly little pitch-alterations to reach a musical note – almost as if some glassware factory wanted them to be struck with mallets and recorded!
Bells & Bowls is available for purchase for $18 USD. Newsletter subscribers get a 50% discount.

Hzandbits has announced Metal Bars & Bells, a sample pack featuring a collection of bell-like sound effects in 24bit/96kHz.
No actual bells were harmed in the making of these sounds – but several other metal objects were.
From crow bars and stainless steel soap trays, a selection of highly resonant and beautiful sounds were coaxed. From sustained tones to short percussive hits; from distinctive sinewaves to shimmering, phasey goodness.
This collection contains several sounds from each object, giving you plenty of musical variety. Drop them straight into your favorite sampler, add healthy doses of reverb, delay and other effects, and you’re off to see the wizard. Or something.
Metal Bars & Bells is available for $16 USD. A 50% discount is available to newsletter subscribers.
