Sampled from the biggest bronze chime-bells set ever found in China, ZenHouYi’s (Marquis Yi) BianZhong(Chime-bells) puts the ancient sound from 2400 years ago in your hand.
Kong Audio sampled the full replica of the excavated chime-bells set and recreated the ancient instrument as an App. The unique design of this Chime-bell set made every bell to produce two notes when being struck at different spots, as shown in the App. This is a great way to learn and play the authentic Chinese ancient musical instrument at the same time. Both enjoyable and educational, this august bell sound of grandeur brings you back to the ancient feudal palaces of China, no matter where you are.
*Sampled from the replica of ZenHouYi BianZhong in HuBei Chime Bells Orchestra

Ratings and Reviews
These bells sound great though I wouldn't know what the real bells sound like. I only wish the interface was a bit more usable - the two sound areas are hard to differentiate, especially with the smaller bells. While the accurate depiction of the bell set is most likely authentic, it would be nice to have something easier to play. Maybe offer the user a choice of a more playable interface as well as the authentic depiction.
