Specifications of all Models
for The Zimbelstern
from New Century Products TM
The Zimbelstern and Glockenstern from New Century Products
come in several models which differ as follows:
The Pedestal Zimbelstern: Our
most popular Zimbelstern, the Pedestal model, will be mounted on your choice
of Light Oak or Dark Walnut
finished base, suitable for mounting on the organ facade. The 9 brass bells
are 6cm (2in) tall. This decorative instrument is 23cm (9in) square and 18cm
(7in) tall overall.
The Pedestal Glockenstern:
The seven 10cm (4in) tall solid brass bells on this model make it too loud
to be called an "overtone" like the traditional Zimbelstern, so
we have given it a new name. The Glockenstern is recommended for large congregations
(over 1000 seats), or for those who want a prominent bell sound, stronger
than the delicate voice of the Zimbelstern. The Glockenstern comes with your
choice of Light Oak or Dark
Walnut finished base. The instrument is 28cm (11in) square and 23cm (9in)
The Black Box Glockenstern:
Our black box models are designed to go inside the organ chamber,
out of sight. All the hand-made solid brass parts of the Glockenstern are
offered on a plain wood platform uniquely designed to reflect the voice of
the instrument out from within the organ chamber. Overall dimensions are 30cm
The Black Box Zimbelstern:
Like the Black Box Glockenstern pictured, all the hand-made solid
brass parts of the Zimbelstern are offered on a plain wood platform uniquely
designed to reflect the voice of the instrument out from within the organ
chamber. Overall dimensions are 25cm (10in) square and 30cm (12in) tall.
Please note: The terms Oak and Walnut
refer to the finish only. The Wood used in our Pedestal models may be oak,
ash, or Philippine mahogany. The black painted base is usually pine or composit.
Motor Speed: The highly reliable Synchron
clock-type motor will always run at the same speed because it runs in synch
with the 50hz or 60hz line. If you want to vary the effective speed of our
instruments, you may remove some of the clappers. The instrument will run
with anywhere from one to four clappers.
Wiring options: Use our handy decision
tree to select the wiring option that is right for you. You can also preview
the wiring instructions that are sent with our instruments.
