Dasheng Bells Layout – 大晟新钟布置图
Each bell is capable of producing two tones, indicated above by beaming. The lower (primary) pitch is produced by playing the bell “straight on,” near its bottom rim. The upper (secondary) tone is produced by striking at a position roughly 45° to the right or left, with the spot of clearest pitch a little variable by bell size. In performance, the alternate pitch is often also audibly present in the beautifully complex tone.
Typically one player is assigned to each bass rack, responsible for two bells. The other two players then perform in the main rack, often, but not necessarily dividing pitches as suggested by the bar line.
Here is the full gamut of the bells, stems down for primary, stems up for secondary pitches.
每一口钟都能够产生两个音高，如上图中符杆相连的两个音符所示。 较低的音（主音）是通过“直接敲击“钟体底部边缘来产生的。 较高的音（次音）则是通过敲击钟体左侧或右侧约 45 度处产生的，其最佳位置因钟的大小而略有变化。 演奏时，无论演奏主音或次音其相应的次音或主音也经常会同时出现，形成繁富美妙的音响。
