Here’s what Aldbourne Bells creator Ian Palmer has to say about this library:

“This is a recording of a selection of my father’s collection of bells. They are of particular interest to us both as they were cast from the late 17th Century until the early 19th Century in the village of Aldbourne, Wiltshire which is where our family history can be traced back to the English Civil War (1642 – 1651).

I recorded the bells using my Zoom H1 in my parents home in the afternoon of the 20th November 2010. All recordings have been cleaned of background noise using iZotope RXII in ProTools 9 at 24Bit/96KHz.

There are 4 types of bell that I recorded; House Bell, Hame Bell, Cup Bell and Crotal Bell.

The House Bell is more ornate and thicker than that Hame Bell but both are the same classic “bell” shape. There are jingles and single hits and a some random movements created from this shape.
 

ARVE Error: The video is likely no longer available. (The API endpoint returned a 404 error)

The Crotal Bell is spherical, here’s how to “ring” this type of bell


 
Finally my father has some Hame sets that are a few bells mounted bells on a wood and metal frame. These would often be mounted onto horse and carts. I recorded almost all of them with a variety of movements. All the bell types range in size from about 2cm to 25cm. All audio files are Stereo, 24Bit, 96KHz with embedded metadata.

A final huge thanks to my father for allowing me to record his bells and being my glamourous assistant on the day. I hope you enjoy the recordings and find them useful.

– Ian Palmer”

    I needed this library for a sequence in which a number of different sized butler’s bells ring out and this serves my needs perfectly. Most files have 2 or 3 performances of the bell – usually a single ding or fairly short ting-a-ling. Where this library is most useful in that it not only has a variety of different bells, but it has many similar bells in different pitches. Need something a little bit more friendly, or sinister – you can finesse what kind of sound you need. Also bonus points for using the humble H1 and getting killer results.
