Rope pulled tolling hammer
The simplest way to play a bell is to pull a rope that is connected to a tolling hammer or clapper.
Care must always be taken , when ringing you ring a bell this way , that the bell is not swinging. Always allow the bell time to come to a full stop before pulling on the tolling rope. If the hammer contacts the bell while it swings, the hammer arm as well as the bell can suffer incur damage. Also be sure to release tension as soon as the hammer contacts the bell. Your bell could be damaged by holding the hammer against the bell as it rings, and it really doesn't sound pretty.
