Plate bells - Single notes

Single notes are the most suitable playing technique on bell plates. Their timbre depends on a large number of factors: the choice of mallet (from soft to hard, light to heavy), the striking spot (more fundamental in the center, more higher partials in the top or bottom third), the force of attack. The sound develops only slowly on the largest plates, which means that rapid sequences of notes are not possible; they can only be performed in the higher register. In addition, it should also be borne in mind that damping the vibrating plate with the hand requires a certain amount of time.
