I need a bell. A big old bell. That rings out a lowish C note, or whatever, I'll pitchshift if need be.
If anyone can lend or even hire me one I'd be most grateful.
Failing this, does anyone know where I could buy one, or maybe there's one you know of that I could sample?
Senor Ding-Dong would be handy if he existed, but he's only available to the residents of Springfield
malone golf club has one - we'll steal it at the weekend.
this idea may not appeal to you at all but what about trying overlaying the temple bell(?) that comes with fruity loops.
I got a class sound out of it the other day when I reversed the sound.
Hope that is of some help to you.
Shoot me now...
Dunno Fruity Loops you see
Be your best friend if you email me the .wav tho
Going for that epic rock bell hit as heard on And You Will Know Us By the trail of Dead's last chart topper, and well I can think of a Fugazi song that begins with bells on'.
I have been using the pleasant bell from the start of Daft Punk's 'Harder Better Faster Stronger', dropping the pitch 12-odd steps it is unrecognisable although obviously distorted.
Need a replacement cos it sounds mean, and besides you'll know now if you hear it.
Ask a priest can you use their Bell (end)
They will always oblige...
Go to Earthworks and buy a Tibetan Prayer Bowl (35 squid), that is a much better sound, if you ask me.
Too old for priests, so I'll give Earthworks a go
Or ewe could go rahnd some churches and sample their bells on site with a wee minidisc recorder or summat...
