The glorious sound of bells is a tradition that has survived for thousands of years across the world. 

Many towns throughout New England, where we live, contact us every week for help restoring bell sounds that more and more people are missing during these uncertain times. Having grown up in the bell business as 3rd generation bellmen, we’ve seen countless times, the joy and excitement that floods a community when the vice comes back to belltowers, churches, schools and even firehouses. We are proud to be able to help make this happen. 

Whether your community has bells that signal church gatherings, weddings, funerals or other events that need an announcement, there is a now a solution to getting that voice back into your community. There has been a remarkable advancements in the quality of carillons, making them easy to use, affordable and amazingly effective at reproducing the sounds people love. In fact, after we install a carillon, most people would never know the sounds they hear are not being produced by true bronze bells. We love that!

Call us to find out about the options available from full-scale bell restoration through surprisingly affordable electronic carillon solutions that can be up and running in weeks rather than years. 

What our Customers are Saying

Excellent Service and Guidance

Our entire congregation is enjoying hearing our new carillon chime the hour, play hymns at noon & six o’clock, and call one and all to the church on Sunday morning. But the icing on the cake came when the concierge of the Equinox Hotel across the street called to tell us how much the employees & guests were enjoying listening too. Thank you for your excellent service & guidance in the selection and purchase of the carillon.

So Good to Hear the Chimes Ring Out Again

Our old carillon had not been working for several years. With our new carillon, it is so good to hear the chimes ring out again, a reminder each day that God is with us. We are especially looking forward to the carols at Christmas. We would certainly recommend your Chime Master system to others.

Excellent Customer Service & Support

Chris Duffy was very accommodating and extremely helpful in assisting us with choosing the carillon that would fulfill the needs of our church. We are delighted with everything the Chimemaster Six “SS” Carillon can do. The excellent customer service and support we received was greatly appreciated. We highly recommend this model and your company to other churches and spiritual communities. On behalf of the congregation, thank you for your dedication to this wonderful ministry and may God continue to bless your work and the joy and peace that it provides for so many—our chimes ring not only in our ears but also in our hearts! 

Peace and Blessings,

Rev. Virginia M. Heimer, Pastor
