talking about marching band? If so, like any color instrument, there are times that are appropriate and times that aren't. We typically use bells sparingly in our fall shows. |
For symphonic band, if a composer calls for bells, I think that it should be covered on bells. I'm not aware of anyone that's doing anything different as a rule.
All that said... I'll certainly omit bells on a strain (or repeat) when I'm texturizing a march. This has been common practice for a very long time.
