Chime Master Travelling Carillon Finds New Permanent Home

Jodi VD

Lancaster, OH – On Saturday, April 20, 2019 the former “Chime Master Mobile Millennium Carillon” officially changed hands to become the “Andrew W. Crawford Memorial Carillon”, destined to reside at a fixed site at the main entrance of the Venice Performing Arts Center in Venice, Florida. The grand instrument was purchased from Europe as the “Royal Eijsbouts Traveling Carillon” and for the past 12 years has awed the friends and clients of Chime Master.

Mrs. Kimiko T. Crawford generously donated the funds for the 48 bell carillon instrument, in memory of her late husband, Andrew W. Crawford. The carillon will be dedicated on the evening of Sunday, May 5, 2019 at the Venice Performing Arts Center.

Mr. Wylie Crawford, son of Mr. Andrew Crawford, currently serves as Senior University Carillonneur of the Rockefeller Memorial Chapel, Resident Carillonneur of the Chicago Botanic Garden, and President of the Venice Carillon Foundation, Inc. Mr. Crawford met with Mr. Jeff Crook and Mr. Rick White of Chime Master on Saturday to complete the transfer of ownership. While at Chime Master’s facility near Sugar Grove, he played a short, impromptu performance on the carillon for visiting students from the Ohio University School of Music. Mr. Crawford, who also served as the immediate past President of the World Carillon Federation, is an enthusiastic promoter of the art of the Carillonneur. He is excited about the educational value of the carillon for arts and music students in the Sarasota County School district. Jeff Crook commented, “Wylie Crawford has always been interested in promoting the carillon through education by encouraging young students at the University of Chicago, teaching students of all ages at the Chicago Botanic Garden carillon and the Millennium carillon in Naperville, Illinois. Wylie has always been an outstanding ambassador for the carillon and we couldn’t be more pleased that this instrument, which holds many fond memories for him as a traveling carillon, is now in his care.”

Mr. Crawford states, “I give heartfelt thanks to Jeff Crook and Rick White of Chime Master for their assiduous restoration of the carillon, which was on the verge of being torn apart for the sale of the individual bells when I contacted them about buying the entire instrument last fall. They really didn't want to sell the bells individually, and were therefore gracious in allowing me the time to establish the Sarasota Carillon Foundation Inc. as a charitable corporation and to find both a donor and a suitable location for the instrument.”

Regular maintenance can also help prevent expensive or dangerous problems which cause your bells to be out of service for some time.

Video Instructions for Special Veterans Day Ringing

Jodi VD

The armistice ending World War One was signed at 11 a.m. on November 11, 1918. As communities celebrated, steeple bells everywhere rang out a message of peace.

A century later, on this special Veterans Day, our bells will ring in remembrance of the ending of World War One. We are encouraged to toll the bells 21 times, to imitate a 21-gun salute, the nation's highest honor.

Provided is an instructional video on how to toll your bells 21 times at 11 o'clock on the morning of Veterans’ Day, Sunday, November 11, 2018 for the centenary of the end of World War One. 

Please note: The video demonstrates using a solid state model and will only work with with the latest line of Six-SS, Millennium and Platinum Chime Master carillons (2007 and newer). If you would like to program your older or CD-based carillon, please call 800-344-7464, Monday-Thursday 8am to 6pm and Friday 8am to 5pm EST and someone will be happy to assist you.

Note: This can be edited anytime between the afternoon of Sunday, November 4 and the morning of Sunday, November 11 (before 11 a.m.). It will play in the weekly schedule until it is removed.

Words from Chime Master Customers - Upgrading

Jodi VD

hime Master customers can take advantage of our trade-up policy.  We can service any of the  electronics we have sold because they are made here in our factory. Additionally, any old Chime Master Carillon holds value toward upgrading to a new Chime Master product. One gentleman, new to his church, writes:

St. Marks Episcopal Church, Jim Thorpe, PA

Nathan Crook

Chime Master was chosen to perform an electrical renovation of the Jones/Meneely chime at St. Marks Episcopal Church in Jim Thorpe, PA. The renovation included the removal of the existing Meneely strikers and electronics, installation of 11 new Sonant electro-mechanical clappers, new stainless steel hanger bolts and an upgrade of the existing Chime Master controller that was installed in 1998 to a modern Libertas Bell Controller.  

The decision to renovate the chime was reached when the old Meneely strikers and electronics began to be a maintenance issue. The bolts and rivets that held the strikers together would shear and cause the chime to fail. 


Mount Angel Abbey, St. Benedict, OR

Nathan Crook

Mount Angel Abbey sits on top of a butte overlooking the Willamette Valley in Oregon just south of Portland. The Monks' life of prayer and work in the Benedictine tradition is choreographed by the 8 bells in the Tower of the Visitation that were installed in 2007.

On June 20th, 2015 Chime Master completed the second phase of renovations to the digital control and automation system by replacing all of the cam-and-switch based motors that were originally installed with new ultra-quiet digital rotary motors and an intelli-Swing Precision computerized motor drive system.

The new motors are smaller, quieter, and much more capable than the motors they replace. The intelli-Swing Precision controls the swing angle of each bell individually, starts each bell gently and applies braking to each bell when the command to stop is given. Gone is the noisy racket of flexing steel and over-stressed chains when the bells begin to swing.

The first phase of renovations was completed in 2013 and involved replacing the difficult to use control equipment with the set-it-and-forget-it Chime Master Libertas controller.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Boston, MA

Nathan Crook

The bells at Boston’s Basilica - Our Lady of Perpetual Help on Mission Hill in Boston, MA fell silent several months ago due to a report that the bolts in the bell frame were about to fail. After a short fund raising project, Chime Master was chosen to replace the bolts that hold the bells to the frame.

Our highly skilled team of bell fitters completed the project Maundy Thursday and returned the bells to full service.

The 12 bells sit in the uppermost chamber of the 215 foot tall western tower of the Basilica, weigh a combined total of 17,850 lbs and were dedicated and installed in the tower in 1910.

Licking County Courthouse

Jodi VD

Chime Master is pleased to announce the completion of the John C. “Jay” Barker Memorial Carillon at the Licking County Courthouse in Newark, OH. Built in 1876 on the public square in Newark, OH and a National Historic Landmark, the courthouse serves as the center of Downtown Newark.

The Chime Master Millennium Carillon installed in the courthouse is equipped with the ability to play MP3 formatted audio files and will be utilized during the yearly lighting of the courthouse during the Christmas season to play Christmas carols in addition to the vast library of Christmas music already recorded in the Millennium Carillon. In addition, the Chime Master Millennium carillon controls the clocks and the historic bronze bell located in the tower.

The Chime Master Millennium Carillon is given voice by an array of InSpire full range speakers and long throw horns. Driven by two US built amplifiers with a combined total power of over 2000 watts, the John C. “Jay” Barker Memorial Carillon will remind Licking County of John C. “Jay” Barker's dedication and service for years to come.
