I'm a pro percussionist and pro percussion teacher. I bought an LMI Glockenspiel for a trial, and then bought 6 more. The price was so low ($15) for a set of bells with a hard plastic case, that I wanted more. I gave them as drawing prizes at a student percussion contest.
The glock is very portable, and is light weight, considering that it has steel bars. Most bells sets in the $150-$500 range have aluminum bars. Aluminum bars are OK for a bells set, but steel gives a greater projection, and steel bars "cut through" an entire orchestra.
This is a table-top bells set. You open it up, the top of the case becomes a music stand, and the bells set has feet to set it above the table, for better projection.
A pair of flexible shaft bell mallets, made of hard plastic, are included with the set, and they store easily inside the case.
This is an excellent sounding set of bells, at a very low price. I recommend it for new bells students on a tight budget. I use the LMI Glock when traveling, for practice, and also for teaching in a small room, at a music instrument retail store. I only wish it had 2.5 octaves range.
It has a nice ring to the sound, and it is altogether well built.
My only complain would be that the mallets are plastic and somewhat flimsy, and I would have much preferred metal or wood ones, but regardless this was a great product and it sounds great to accompany my ukulele :]

A genuine glockenspiel sound. Needs rubber mallets though. Otherwise the sound is quite loud and bright but still lovely.Published 23 days ago by Dr. C fan
