Together let’s Make a Joyful Noise, America!


We’ve been Serving a Sweeter Sound to America’s
most polished ringers since 1987. And you can Tap In, too.
With our unique, proprietary polishing equipment we
can restore your castings to original factory condition.

we are especially renowned for the consistency of our
playing action adjustments and voicing capabilities.

service available and your audience deserves a sweeter sound.

Tap Into A Sweeter Sound

Tap Into A Sweeter Sound


Handbell ringing is truly musical artistry.
Like the painter who creates his works in multi-hued oils, your handbell choir paints its portraits with a palette of tonal colors.
We appreciate your devotion to your music, your medium and your fellow choir members.
After more than 30 years of serving America’s most discriminating ringers, we know your instruments better than anyone and we understand your art form. You, your choir, and your handbells deserve the very best in service.
Trust your bells’ tonal color to The Bellman
and hear your choir blossom!


When your handbells need service you need options.
In over 30 years as America’s premiere handbell service provider, we offer you more options and convenience than ever before. Take advantage of our industry leading service facility in Kerrville, TX or choose our unrivaled on-site “MoBell ShopTM” service performed right at your location. Either way you’ll receive the same, legendary service on which we have built our reputation since 1987.

So Let’s Get Together! Our Place...or Yours!

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!.
