I recently needed to get to grips with this subject from a similar
standpoint ie musically unknowledgeable but very comfortable with Hz. In my
view, it is necessary to get through at least a bit of the complexity of the
subject before being able to do something as deceptively simple as ascribing
a single frequency (or note name) to the sound made by a bell. As well as
Bill Hibberts' website, I found the following useful, especially Dave
Kelly's explanations on the Keltek Trust website. He has a specific page
titled: "What is the note of a bell?".


Good luck!

Chris Frye.
