Beauty and the Beast - Regional - Angel Williams

Angel Williams’ percussion setup for the Herriman Arts Councils production of Beauty and the Beast in Herriman, Utah.


"The setup is simple with a few added things for Sound Effects in the show.

No room for a marimba or chimes so I used a xylophone with mallets played an octave lower for the marimba and chime notes. Crotales were played on a Wurlitzer 1919 Concert Bells.

Miller Machine made quick changes easy!
