You already know the uplifting inspiration your bells bring to the community. But imagine if you could control the sound of your bells to play any musical selection of your choice.

Because of our long experience in cast bronze bells, we custom manufacture bell ringing equipment of the highest quality. This includes new bell yokes, clappers, frames, wheels, ball bearings, electric and manual striker mechanisms, swinging bell systems. All of this equipment may be controlled by our latest, state-of-the-art microprocessor clock system to provide an automatic swinging bell, swinging peal, clock chimes, the hour and half hour strike, the angelus, funeral toll, and optional custom bell ringing functions. In addition to swinging a bell, van Bergen can also provide the latest, state-of-the-art Doppler-effect system so that the same functions may be operated on a stationary bell or bells.

The van Bergen Renaissance Carillon as a cast bell controller is by far the world's most user-friendly way to project the majestic and percussive sound of your bells.
