These Polish sanctus bells are made of the highest quality and contain elements that create a sweet mid range tone when rung. They are made of brass with a high polish finish and contain 4 bells and a unique design that rests on top of the bells. The handle on these sacristy bells is solid and allows for easy function when swinging the bells. The Sanctuary Bell is rung at the beginning the The Canon of the Mass and during the prayer consecration of each element and normally at the end of the prayer of consecration when the Eucharist is elevated to the congregation. Made in Poland! Order now!

    Great sounding bells

    Posted by Unknown on 25th Jan 2016

    These bells have a beautiful harmonious sound. I like them because they are unique and have a different sound (a little more of a midrange sound) than typical Church altar bells like SKU EB30BL47PBE (more high-pitched).

    These Polish brass bells are loud and ring with authority! Wow. They truly impress. Their ring is solid and powerful. The duration of the ring is somewhere around 6-7 seconds. The ring from bronze bells lasts slightly longer. I have a single bronze bell and the ring can be heard for about 9-10 seconds. This really doesn't matter to me, but I supply this information for those interested.

    The quality is top notch. The bells themselves are actually pretty thick and the entire apparatus is solid. The handle is very sturdy and is attached well. The high polish finish on the brass is superb.

    The bells cannot be rung in the same manner or with the same effortless ease of the other bells mentioned above (EB30BL47PBE). Those have three clappers in each bell. You can move your hand slightly and they ring immediately. They are very sensitive in that respect.

    These Polish bells require a deliberate effort. In my opinion, they sound best (amazing, actually) when rung with a single back and forth movement. Or, you can ring them in the way shown in the Zieglers video if you like that. I just would not recommend ringing them with a circular movement of the hand because after a couple of seconds the single clapper in each bell spins around the circumference of the bells and doesn't ring them any more.

    So, if you want something different and are happy with their unique sound and ways of ringing them, then you won't be disappointed. I am totally satisfied.
