The design of the bells is the result of extensive research and modelling by Taylors. They need to be thick enough to sound like real bells but not too thick that they will accentuate the higher frequencies. And of course in order that the entire installation didn’t exceed our target weight of 1800kg.
This analysis of mini ring bell sizes and frequencies of bells in different small rings was part of the design process. The bells are actually Taylors’ patent carillon design but tuned much lower and therefore thinner.
