I use this agogo bell for rhythm workshops and for playing in bands. My students and band mates are loving two distinct tones as they are very pleasant sounding. The bell projects very well but is very controllable at the same time. Build quality seems great and I believe this will last for a long time. If I could change one thing in this product, I would include a stick with it. If you're not a drummer and wish to get this, make sure to purchase a pair of sticks to hit the bells with.
