Bob Brosamer with some of his used church bells

All Sizes given are the bells' diameter, weight chart at bottom of page.

A true church bell is found in a steeple, and is used to call the faithful to service on Sunday mornings, to announce weddings, and to toll at funerals.

The size of a typical church bell is 28" and greater, and the weight is 400 lbs. and up. Most of them are cast bronze,and have a deep rich tone. You just cannot get a church bell sound out of a small bell, smaller bell sounds are associated with a small chapel or school.

Our complete swinging church bells come with yoke, clapper, wheel, A frame stands, and a toller (if desired) We can also sell you JUST the bell, and it can be electrified to ring remotely. (we have to send them out for the electric) BUT most of our customers prefer the old fashioned rope pull method of ringing the bell.

We do not offer electronic bell sounds. Or, as some call them, singing bells etc. WE only deal in REAL bells, real bells have been rung for thousands of years, and will never go out of style or have parts that have been discontinued. I have heard lots of complaints from churches that were not satisfied with their recorded bell sound systems. It seems when something breaks down they can no longer get parts, Like computers, they are out of date or change models real fast. A real bell when rung properly will last for ever, and always be in style.

We do not have any spare church bell parts to sell, sorry.
