I sampled a set of Schulmerich handbells in the entryway of my house using a U47 clone running through a Rascal Audio Two-R preamp. Each bell was recorded with 3 velocity layers.
I made a video describing the process, including a demonstration of how I might use the sounds in a non-traditional manner. The last 2 minutes of the video feature a performance utilizing the handbell samples, the flute+violin samples from my last video, and my felted Kawai upright piano.
