Product Information

What's included

1x Chime Bar – 1 note, stainless

How to Play

Simply strike the metal bar with the wooden stick to produce an amazing, crystal clear tone which can sustain for over a minute. If you find the note doesn’t last so long, try moving the bar slightly as once it is suspended properly it can resonate freely and for ages.

You can dampen the note with your thumb after it is played in order to create various rhythms without the constant ringing.


We work with a small number of specialist logistic companies to deliver your order quickly and economically. The delivery method varies, depending on your location and the size of the order, as follows:

UK Locations

Orders up to 5kg – Courier 2 to 3 working day delivery. This would typically include books, smaller instruments, percussion baskets and djembes up to 40cm.

Orders over 5kg – Courier, next working day delivery. Most orders are sent this way.

Large orders – Pallet service, 3 to 5 working day delivery. Used for large orders and those with more fragile contents.

Please note:

  1. Above timings are from dispatch date. Time from placing your order will usually be one or two days longer, depending on the order and destination.
  2. Delivery to offshore or Highland addresses may take longer and may cost more than to UK mainland addresses and we’ll quote and agree the costs with you in advance. Please note that in these cases it’s fine to go ahead and place your order, and there’s no obligation on your part until the delivery costs have been quoted and accepted by you.
  3. For some destinations, where a courier service isn’t available, we may send by Royal Mail instead.

International Locations

Orders weighing less than 1kg and not too bulky – Post Office Airmail. This would include books and smaller percussion instruments.

Orders weighing more than about 1kg and large orders – international courier or pallet service. We’ll obtain competitive quotes and agree these with you in advance.

Please note that it’s fine to go ahead and place your international order prior to confirming shipping costs, and that there’s no obligation on your part until the delivery costs have been quoted and accepted by you. Payment for international orders, including shipping costs, is required before dispatch of the goods.


Please let us know straight away if anything arrives damaged or otherwise in a substandard condition and we’ll be happy to replace it, refund the cost or provide you with an alternative product to your satisfaction. Speed is of the essence here as most courier companies will only accept responsibility for damage in transit if the damage is reported within 24 hours of delivery.

 In the event of damage, please take photographs, including any damage to the packaging, and email these to us ASAP.

Similarly, if an instrument  develops a fault within 12 months of purchase in the course of normal use (though excluding fair wear and tear), please let us know, and we’ll replace it or refund the cost. It’s also very helpful for us to see photos of the issue as this gives us solid information for changing the design, the production method or the packing materials.

But please do contact us before returning any damaged or substandard items. Once we’ve approved their return, please send to:  Drums for Schools Limited, 21 Shaftesbury Avenue, Burton Joyce NG14 5GL 

We really appreciate your feedback in the case of faults (or if you think an instrument could be improved in any way) and we take all such feedback very seriously indeed.

I have been delighted with everything from Sound Children. Many thanks to Andy for his patience with me.

Megan Morris

Thanks so much, the order arrived very promptly and it’s great! Lovely instruments.
I also really appreciated the recycled packaging. Ithink a lot of companies wouldn’t have the confidence to do that and I like it so much that you did – a real commitment to reducing packaging and waste.

Joanna Moon

Many thanks for beautiful instruments! They are very, very nice.

Zane Kriumane

Great quality products with the most beautiful and funny sounds. Interesting, fun, surprising and pleasant.. The children will be amazed! I love the short films playing them that you have on the website. Very helpful.

Lorena Zurbano

The meditation chimes have been everyone’s favourite this week and we have been doing a lot of composition with a variety of tuned and untuned instruments. Thanks again for all of your time and help.
