Song bells are a musical instrument in the percussion family; they are a mallet percussion instrument that is essentially a cross between the vibraphone and the glockenspiel. They sound one octave down from the glockenspiel (so one octave above written pitch). Song bells have been made by various makers at different times but were first introduced by the J.C. Deagan Company in 1918 and were manufactured until 1924.
