The Beauty of Uchida Handbells. Uchida handbells are the result of our dedication to making the experience of playing high quality bells accessible to as many people as possible. Due to our unique precision manufacturing method developed in Japan, we are able to offer instruments that combine the excellent intonation and brilliant tone of high quality instruments with an affordability that opens up a world of possibility for music educators, ensemble directors and anyone who wishes to enrich the musical life of their community with the unique qualities of handbells. Uchida handbells are uniform in size to enhance their portability, playability and affordability while not sacrificing their rich sound quality or accurate tuning. This unique feature enables us to make a handbell set that is compact in size and easy to carry and store. Our manufacturing process allows us to offer high-quality handbells that can easily be assembled into a set that fits your musical needs best. Your order can be as large as a set of 35 bells (just under 3 octaves), or as small as one individual bell. Uchida Handbells Product Lines. We have two main product lines – the Premium Line and the Excellent Line. Premium Line Handbells. Our Premium Line handbells are bound to make a big impact on music making in the US. Their small and uniform size makes them highly portable and easy to store making them a great choice for educational environments. Excellent Line Handbells. Our Excellent Line handbells have an elegant appearance along with their beautiful sound and are ideally suited for performance, worship or therapeutic settings. Bell Stands. Uchida handbells have the option of a stand for easy storage and display. These stands are included with the soft case but must be ordered separately if you ordered your bells on their own or with the hard case. Portable Bags and Storage Cases. Uchida offers both a soft case and a hard case for your bells. The soft case is excellent for teachers and performers that often travel short distances and need something light-weight and portable. It also includes bell stands. The hard case offers better protection for long distance travel, as well as for storage. UCHIDA YOKO CO., LTD. Corporate Vision.

We are the 3rd generation of workers creating Uchida handbells. Our bells are the same size throughout their range, a feature that took exceptional effort to design. We assure you that hard work goes into manufacturing our bells to be excellent musical instruments. First we choose the best material. There are many types of sheet metal, but we choose only high quality metal for our instruments. We age the metal as necessary, in order to stabilize the sound. Forming the bell shape from the sheet metal requires skill and experience. Our quality control is very high. We test the tuning of all our bells and reject all those that do not meet our high standards. We hope to bring the enjoyment of playing our bells to as many people as possible.
