About Tingsha bells:
Tibetan tingsha (or Ting-Sha) (Tibetan: ཏིང་ཤགས་) are small cymbals used in prayer and rituals by Tibetan Buddhist practitioners. Two cymbals are joined together by a leather strap or chain. The cymbals are struck together producing a clear and high pitched tone. Typical sizes range from 2.5–4 inches in diameter. Tingsha are very thick and produce a unique long ringing tone. Antique tingsha were made from special bronze alloys that produce harmonic overtones. Tingsha are unique in form and function and distinctly different from Indian, Nepali, Chinese, Turkish or other cymbals.
