For interest, before the four tenors were cast for the Wellington Carillon, metal was scratched off the existing bells so an analysis could be made for the castings for an exact match to the existing G&J bells.

Are there any variances in tonal qualities when different percentages of metal (copper/tin) are used in a bell, and if so, what are they? How are they analyzed?

  The resulting carillon is absolutely magnificent and can be heard daily
