Soft-TouchTM Handle

The handle individually molded of smooth scratch-resistant polypropylene co-polymer, has built-in reinforcing ribs to maintain proper shape. Handle is easily removable from bell assembly. The notations on the handles are virtually indestructible, and are laminated on both sides, assuring quick note identification. Campaniform symbol aids ringers in locating the side of optimum strike point.


MasterTouchTM Guardian Disc

The disc is molded of durable Kodak Butyrate® in a shape designed to be more comfortable on ringers’ hands, while preventing accidental dampening of sound.


Select-A-StrikeTM Clapper 

Schulmerich’s most popular clapper allows you nearly unlimited freedom for setting your bell’s “voice” for soft, medium or hard strike settings. The feature proper balance for ease of ringing and control.


PellethaneTM Spring 

The restraining spring controls the clapper after striking, to maintain maximum volume and clarity of tone.
