Hand Chimes are a strange quirk of musical evolution. Created as a cheaper and more durable alternative to hand bells, these giant mutant ninja tuning forks have a mellow sound that is best described as a cross between a xylophone, a music box, and a celesta. These sound excellent in all sorts of textures, but as we found out, they're really great with arpeggios (listen to the demos and you'll see what we mean). You can also get great effects by pushing the attack back. Use them as an alternative to celesta when you get tired of that sound, or almost like mallet percussion.
