Do your handbells have broken springs? Are the clappers loose and flopping, or are they too tight? Do your bells sound “tinny” or are they “buzzing”?
I offer complete handbell repair of Malmark, Schulmerich, and Whitechapel Handbells. I have trained with Whitechapel technicians in London.
Note #1: Cracked Castings cannot be repaired. The bell must be shipped back to the
foundry for recasting.
Note #2: Certain repairs on Schulmerich Handbells, if done by anyone other than the foundry may void the lifetime warranty. I will be glad to consult regarding this.
Call or e-mail me for pricing and consultation.
Below are the websites for the leading handbell foundries for your reference:
All three foundries cast high quality handbells. They all have different sounds and feels. They all have their advantages and disadvantages. I will be glad to consult on this. (No charge for e-mail or telephone consultation.)
This 3 Octave set of Whitechapel handbells was completely refurbished: new handles, caps, and handle stiffeners. Clappers were completely rebuilt.
