Specifications of all Models
for The Zimbelstern
from New Century Products
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) tall overall.
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 (12in)
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 12vdc and
110vac-wired controlled instruments.
