The roots of Aomori Nebuta festival; to dace and have fun!! to feel and have fun!! to tell and to have fun!!
To stick with these principles, at Hockt we produce and sell Aomori Nebuta related musical instruments including flutes, drums and bells made with true dedication of masters.
Manufacturing process of hand-bells
Hand operated embossing with a hammer
At Hockt, we care about materials and process. To make the bell, we only use brass and we do not use any machinery. Instead, each piece of brass is embossed manually with a hammer by a master who has been dedicated to this work. For this process, our bell makes sound completely different from others.
Installing a string keeper
Then, a string keeper is installed on the brass already embossed. Another process that relies heavily on a master’s skills.
Install a string and finish
Like we said, we care about materials and it’s the same for the string. The silk string is waved one by one carefully by hand. Even when the festival reaches peak of excitement, the strings holds the bells securely.
