Had a chat with someone else who mentioned them so may give them a bell.JamesYelland said:Last time I was in London I looked around Pro Percussion in Kentish Town (North London). Plenty of stuff there.
Sadly over here(certainly in London) you'd be hard pushed to find a school which even TEACHES music let alone has an orchestra!. Schools only seem to want to teach Recorder, Keyboard, Guitar or ethnic intruments. Prime example my old school once boasted An Orchestra, Choir, Brass Band, ensembles, etc. Now there's a "vocal group" and about 20 kids playing guitar... but thats another topic.brasscrest said:Do you need them for a short time (say, a couple rehearsals and a performance) or are you looking more long-term? If I were looking for a short-term set, I'd check with the local schools - they may have one you coould borrow either for free or for a small condsideration. Here in the US, almost any secondary school has an orchestra or concert band, and most of them would have a set of bells (condition might be and issue, however :? ). Ditto for things like gongs, Turkish crescents, and other exotic things in the percussion section.
