Eight Unique Keyboard Bell Voices

This is the True Cast bell sound with realistic clapper impact and decay. The complete 61-note range is included: from the glockenspiel sounds of the upper register, to the low bourdon bells.

Created for the Flemish low-lands of Belgium and Holland, the Flemish bells were quite pleasing and capable of playing harmony, a possibility lacking in the Old English bell. The major tuning of the Flemish bell offers an entire 61-note range that is rich and brilliantly clear.

Old English bells, although tuned to a pitch, were not the perfect bells. Their charm, however, is in the rich and sonorous tones of each bell. English bells are most effective when played as single notes. Melodies on the 37 English bells with Harp accompaniment offer a beautiful option for performance.

Celesta Bells have a keen timbre and brilliance with a delicate brightness. Their usefulness, either alone or in conjunction with other bell voices, is invaluable. The 61 Celesta bells serve three main uses: in solo or chorded passages, as an additional (double) set of bells, and in conjunction with other bell voices.

The 37-note range offers the traditional sound of tubular chimes. The Organ Chime is a beautiful, bright sound for melodies, with either organ or harp accompaniment.

Although the 61 Harp Bells are generally used as accompaniment to the other bell voices they are also a beautiful solo voice.

The timbre of the 61 Quadra Bells is more precise than the Harp Bells, yet they maintain a very definite depth and solidity of tone. They are more exciting and have a more comprehensive quality. The Quadra Bells add color and reinforcement and may be used as solo bells or played in chorded passages.

The 61-note range of the Tembrel Bell voice adds a rich timbre tune in a major tonality. The Tembrel Bell voice provides a distinct bell voice unlike any other carillon voice, and can be used as a solo voice or in chorded passages.
