Perfect Note, Clearly Sounded.
In contrast to church bells, whose concave shapes produce complex chords, the cup bell generates a single, very clear note if it is manufactured to very high standards. The manufacturer of this bell uses bell metal, a kind of bronze whose tin component must be very pure (usually 99.99%, which is far higher than industrial standards). The bell is cast in a sand mould in which each bell is poured individually. The bell receives its pure sound in the careful reprocessing of the blank which starts out about a half tone higher as the finished bell. Only by ' removing the casting crust by hand, leaving the inside alone, and by polishing does the note drop in tone a bit, finally producing the exact note by the manual interventions of a craftsman.
From percussion to casting.
