Fredrico Percussion's Signature Cowbell has been called the best cowbell ever made by many. It is a steel bell that is 9" x 6" x 2 1/2" and has a special super heated, copper brazed,electrictrostatically charged applied finish that is very durable. These bells are guaranteed not to break under normal playing conditions. ( note; playing with a tire iron is not a normal playing condition) They come with a gob of "Get Down" inside which is a blue putty like substance that in various degrees of application will alter overtone substain. They also come with a u-clamp for mounting the bell by its handle on any standard post.
