    Would some kind soul please enlighten me as to the written range of tubular bells?

    I'd hate to upset the percussion players by writing something impossible to play....

    Should I read that in conjunction with your disclaimer, Keith?

    Depends who's hitting 'em ;)

    I remember at Besses we had a very old set that we actually did take a hacksaw to :eek:

    That was before all this lottery malarkey.

    I shall now return to the corner and stop making light of this - seeing as it actually is quite serious. Sorry.

    Oh, I dunno. It's been a tough old day for one reason and another - gave me a good laugh and I needed that!

    According to Alfred Blatter's "Instrumentation / Orchestration" (which was my bible when I was a composition student, and is still never far from my right hand even now!) the written range is of the tubular bells is from C on one leger line below the treble clef stave, to F on the top line of the same.

    HTH

    Unless you're really lucky, like us and have a 2 octave set especially made for the band :)
