The Bellman - Bright Idea


All of the cornerstone principles of
our business started as just bright ideas,
but the development and implementation of
innovative thinking has positioned us as
America’s premiere handbell service provider.
For nearly three decades, it has been our pleasure
to serve thousands of churches, schools, universities,
music therapists and civic organizations.
If you’re not one of them, we’ve got another
great idea…Give us a call.




As America’s first, and still only
full time, full service, and fully independent
handbell service provider, we’ve been
singularly focused on our craft for nearly
three decades. Whether your bells are American
or European-made, we remain uniquely qualified
to render the very finest service available, period.
Please call or email now to experience what happens
when we put the focus on your instruments.

The Bellman - Singularly Focused



Polished Performance


Eventually, all handbells fall prey to
one or more of the following infestations:
The sticky-clapper caterpillar, the back-ring
beetle, the clapper wobble-worm, the squeaky
axle aphid, the broken spring scorpion
or the dreaded rattle-roach.
Fear not!
As America’s premiere
handbell service provider since 1987,
we are uniquely qualified and experienced.
We’ll Get the Bugs Out!.
