Handbells/Handchimes and/or Accessories for Sale/Wanted

For Sale: Schulmerich Case A — 1st Octave C5-C6 (missing C#5, D#5, F#5, and G#5)

Three cases of bells were gifted to our church, but we don’t have a bell choir and have no need for them. We have already sold two cases. They are beautiful instruments and we hope to find an appreciative home for them. We believe $1000 is a fair asking price. Thank you for your time and consideration. Please call Mike Misiak 216-375-3104 in Strongsville, Ohio, for more information.
