Malmark Handchimes

In addition to five octaves of handbells, the church also owns five octaves of handchimes, made by the Malmark Handbell Company. The handchimes do not look like bells but rather like long, metal tubes with a slot at one end. Handchimes have a softer, more mellow sound than handbells. They also have the advantage of being lightweight and very durable, which makes them ideal for use by children and youth.

The first, two-octave set was purchased in 1997, with additional purchases since that time bringing the set to its current, 61-note range.
