bell: |bel| noun a hollow object, typically made of metal and having the shape of a deep inverted cup widening at the lip, that sounds a clear musical note when struck, typically by means of a clapper inside.
Bronze, brass, chrome, gold, stainless steel, and steel are just some of the materials that forged this library. We spent a day at one of the few remaining bell foundries in the United States and we rang bells until our ears nearly fell off. We hit them with mallets, clappers, and shook them with our bare hands. We also spent time on an old barge and percussion rental facility for rare and unusual bells.
Each bell was recorded from multiple perspectives … if you need a heavy attack or just a warm roomy bell toll … we’ve got it.
