Everything from wood to glass and various metal alloys have been tried to create a percussive instrument that resonates according to the purpose at hand. Most modern bells are made of either cast iron or bronze. A few steel bells can be found. If a bell does not attract a magnet, it is probably bronze. Most trained ears agree that bronze provides the most musical tone.
