A bell sounds like a ‘waterfall’ of partial tones

(© Peter and Johannes GRASSMAYR)

At Grassmayr Bell Foundry, the pre-calculated partial tones after casting are subsequently analysed in quality control to a Cent (1 Cent = 1/100 half tone) with great precision. You yourself can make partial tones audible in relation to the strike tone in an interactive sound probe, thereby recognizing the area of the bell form where the specific partial tone finds its greatest area of genesis.
