This family of Alo (AH-loe) bells offers a group discount for music or drumming ensembles wanting a more elaborate bell section. Each of the large, medium, and small bells produces a single melodious tone when struck with the included light-wood beater. The Alo bell originally comes from Nigeria, but is also used traditionally among the Ewe of Ghana and Togo (as a single-tone Gankogui bell). The sound is also appropriate for Afro-Cuban and Latin drumming music where a cow bell might otherwise be used. Wonderful sound and built to last.

These bells feature:

  • Large Bell: 9.5in tall bell, 13in tall
  • Standard Bell: 8in tall bell, 11in tall
  • Small Bell: 5in tall bell, 7.5in tall
  • Hand forged from recycled iron by expert blacksmiths in Togo
  • Bright, sustained tones sing out over the ensemble
  • Durable construction, built with quality of sound as priority
  • Light-wood beater included for each bell
  • Due to the nature of the crafting process and materials used, each bell will have its own pitch and sound quality
  • African-made product from cultural artisans supported by Africa Heartwood Project
