The merger is the culmination and the central heart of the construction of a bell, the moment comes to life the soul of ancient art. A long wait in the land that extends between the 3 and 15 days in relation to the size of the bell and the outside temperature, is the time required to cool the bronze. The magic of a new bell and its sound will appear to break the pattern in the ground!

The size, sound and notes:

The sound of a bell is closely related to a complex balance of thicknesses that determine the profile of the bell.

The thicknesses form, together with the root note and the partial sounds, the sound of the bell. Note, however, it is determined by the volume of the vessel sound: the bigger the bell will be more serious note; the smaller the bell and sharper will be the note. The bells may then be granted to each other by means of specific operations ranging change in their volume.

There are different types of bells depending on the thickness, of the note and of the shape. The profile, which takes the name of "silhouette", may be different (for example) depending on the needs of the place where the new bell will be placed. There are "templates read" and "heavy shapes" used by various smelters.

In Italy usually it blends in "lighter" than the standard central European.

A good bell can come to issue up to 50 partial tones, but the most important, and especially the most recognizable are (compared to the keynote): part of "First" and "Third" (which may be higher or lower), " Fifth "(which can be reduced)," Octave Higher "and" Lower Octave ".

Alloy bells:

Bronze notch (alloy 80 20%% Copper and Tin) for the best sound and durability, is the material of our bells, the entire production process are used only traditional, natural products, in total respect of the bell and nature .

- Land for the construction of models, specifically clay with recycle about the '80% of the entire production cycle.

- Hemp natural for the "tying" of models.

- Horse hair, for the "tying" of the models in the finishing phase.

- Milk and ash, as a release agent.

- Sego, release agent for finishing.

- Wax, production of decorations, images, friezes and written.

The ancient belief that the addition of silver in the merger would give rise to a better sound (Argentinean) was being debunked silver material that the melting point of bronze, is burned.
