Here is a fun-to-ring 3-5 octave arrangement of Leroy Anderson's novelty showcase, "Plink, Plank, Plunk"--performed entirely with mallets (bells on the table) and an occasional mart. By using mallets, the chromatics are not a problem even at the suggested tempo of (half-note = 144-152). The repetition of sections, and within sections, makes the piece easy to master.
