Carillons

As the only bell foundry in Poland we offer unique musical instruments - carillons. These are the sets of bells (at minimum 13) which are used to play any religious, patriotic and popular melodies. The process of manufacturing the carillon bells is different than church bells as carillon bells must have different shape and alloy than church bells. The different shape (profile) is designed in a way to expose other partials than in regular bells, shorten the time of ressonance so the particular notes can be heard clearly and without distractions.

Carillons are very efective way to bring people to churches and towns as they create an unique concert place which gathers everyone together!
