  • Soundscape Potential

    What an interesting instrument! I just reviewed Rob's coffee tin and it reminded me of some of the percussive sounds in the Zelda video game series, I think this would perfectly compliment that genre. It sounds dumb to say, but it's obvious that the water sound is prominent, so you have to plan for that type of sound. Raising the attack gives it an interesting water pad soundscape style. I think it could have been a lot more versatile if there was a knob to control sustain too, to completely turn it into an ambient pad, but I'm sure that would be a whole lot of work.

  • Unique instrument

    This is one of the most unique instruments I have seen here in Pianobook. It can ben useful for soundscapes or for other kind of experimental music. Not very playable because of the intonation, but in some contexts may work pretty well.

  • Wet Percussion Bell

    If you are looking for a sound that has a very unique character, then this is perfect! It has a wet bell-like sound that could work well in various contexts. For added fun, drench see what I did there? it in reverb. Enjoy!

  • Nice idea but not in love with the end result

    Although i really like the idea of adding water sounds to bell type instruments i dont find the actual glass hit sound to be very inspiring. It has a really fast pitch bend down which limits its usability. It also sounds kind of comical which isn't a bad thing but again limits its usability for me. Its a cool instrument overall but there are many similar instruments on pianobook i much prefer for their tone, character and playability

  • Enough to whet your appetite

    This is a unique library to be sure. There's a clear sound of a glass being struck, followed by some splashing water. The glass has a distinct pitch which bends quickly downward. Since the pitch isn't centered and doesn't stay put, this isn't a particularly useful sound for melodic playing. It's probably not my cup of tea, but it certainly is unique, so if you have interest, you should give it a try.
