Bronze Handbell Castings

$200.00$6,000.00

The bell casting is the heart of the handbell. It is made of traditional bronze bell metal (approximately 80 percent pure copper and 20 percent tin), the result of the molten metal being poured into a sand mold and allowed to harden by cooling. The rough casting is then precision turned inside and out on a lathe to an exact profile and musical specification.
On the inside lip of the bell you will find a scribed mark about 1/2″ in length. This is not a crack or defect in the bell, but has been placed there to fix the point where the clapper should strike the bell for best response and minimum beat or “wow”.
