Ringing a Stone Bell
Aum Namah Sivaya
Recently Paramacharya Sadasivanathaswami and Acharyas Kumarnathaswami and Arumuganathaswami set about to weigh Iraivan Temple’s granite bell. It turns out that it weighs 511lbs. What’s more exciting, is that the team was able to ring the bell while they held it aloft. This video gives you a glimpse into the bell’s charming sound. Aum.

The shape and material of the striker is a large part of how a Bell sounds. Something with a rounded head will give the purest tone. Woods of Various hardness affect the sound as well as the size and composition of the head (wood, Hard rubber, felt, etc). Tonal experiments.

Sounds nice when struck on the bottom rim.
