Des Moines IA - Dr. Tim Diebel and Organist Carl Staplin
of First Christian Church describe the renovation of their Deagan Tower Chime.
Middlebury IN - Pastors tend to move around, and as they do, many of them purchase from us again for their new congregation. Dr. Stephen Ellis purchased a Model Six while pastoring in Chrisney in 2005, and recently installed our Six-SS Carillon at the First United Methodist Church of Middlebury.
Jackson TN - We have been refurbishing and automating the 47-bell Memorial Carillon at First Presbyterian Church in Jackson Tennesee. This work included re-hanging the five largest bells (2000 to 5000 pounds each!) that were suspended from rotting wooden beams. Pastor John White writes us about his 100-foot iPod. Carillonneur Kathleen Huneycutt is also pleased with the renovation work to the playing action. She says, "The reconstruction of the clavier has resulted in a marked improvement in the playability of the Carillon because there is greater consistency between the batons, or keys, which produces a more fluid sound. Consider, too, playing the Carillon demands a certain amount of physical effort. For the Carillonneur, playing a well-maintained Carillon is more gratifying."
Norwalk OH - St. Mary's Church in Norwalk Ohio uses the Chime Master Millennium Carillon to play inside from the keyboard, automatically play hymns and to ring their historic bell. Music Director Greg McDonald writes to express his satisfaction with our service.
