The process starts with a sheet of brass in the shape of a disc that is pressed to fit a form then it is transferred to a lathe and pressed while turning against the pre-determined form. The result is a bell flare with slightly thinner material nearest the throat or bell ring area, and slightly thicker material near the rim or bell wire. A majority of manufacturers around the world incorporate this manufacturing technique and it is considered a modern method.
Re-numbered the #3 mandrel, this bell flare matches perfectly the C.F. Schmidt Weimar Berlin bell. The bell has a copper coated steel wire in the rim to give it a more traditional and authentic feel/sound.
*Due to the close relationship between Martin Ecker (Dieter Otto) and Bernd Sandner (Schallstueckmacherei), these bells are made by Bernd, prepared by Martin, and finished either by us in the shop at Siegfried's Call, or the Dieter Otto shop.
