Chime Master Electronic Carillons provide churches and civic organizations with an affordable alternative to church bells.

All Chime Master Digital Carillons come with hundreds of bell songs and hymns. Traditional Church Bell and Tower Chime sounds are standard. Acoustic Measurements. Using acoustical measurement techniques is imperative for large room acoustics.

Sound energy is injected into the room using an active monitor and the signal is then measured for different variables. One of the most important variables with churches is reverberation times. We have the spoken word and the musical word.

The most prominent partials in the sounds of tuned church bells or carillon bells, like those of most musical instruments, are har. The decay rates of the different partials of a vibrating bell are an important characteristic of the bell’s sound spectrum.

These decay rates are caused by material damping of the bell structure and acoustic damping due to the surrounding air. Designing new bells, bell founders would like to know the damping of the different partials before they cast a bell since casting a new bell is.The latest revelation, based on his own investigations, was prepared in by E.

W. Van Heuven of Delft, in his dissertation on "Acoustical Measurements on Church Bells and Carillons."
