=== Ring ===
In the United Kingdom you can find hundreds of bell instruments uniquely designed for group participation. A ''ring'' will be comprised of six or more bells. The larger rings have as many as twelve to sixteen bells.
Each bell in a ''ring of bells'' is suspended in a rotating headstock quite different from a traditional swinging bell headstock. The design of a ringing headstock does not allow the bell to freely swing back and forth. Instead, a bell in a ring swings between two rest positions, right side up and upside down. Each time the bell is moved from one position to the other its clapper strikes the bell's note.
