=== Traditional manual carillon action ===
A traditional carillon action is a purely mechanical transmission that takes the energy of the players body and uses it to move the clappers to the bell to sound the each noteof a musical piece. Traditional actions almost always make use mechanical advantage in the form of springs, weights and leverage to move heavy clappers with ordinary mortal physical powers. Additional pneumatic power has historically been used to assist ringing the largest bells on a few instruments.
The manual of the keyboard or part that the player's hands are used to play is made up of keys made in appearance as wooden rods. To these levers are connected the transmission wire, typically made of stainless steel that carries the energy up to the bell chamber.
