Tower Chimes: Tone Wheel and Tone Cabinet Service Co.
I regret that I am unable to answer questions about other products that the J. C. Deagan Company manufactured.
In the mid 1920's the firm of J. C. Deagan saw the need for the development of a tubular bell carillon, as opposed to the cast bell variety. Over the next 27 years, the company would produce several hundred sets of tubular bells. The smallest set was ten tones, and the largest regular set was thirty-two tones. They were installed in churches, cemeteries, memorials, and public buildings all over the United States, Canada and an installation in Pretoria, South Africa. This last set was installed in the Town Hall, and was rebuilt a few years ago.
The bells could be played in many ways, but the two most unique features were the automatic player which used perforated music rolls and the chiming device . This device could be set to chime the quarter hours, usually the Westminster chimes, and could control the automatic player to start and end the day with music.
Many of these beautiful instruments are being restored today, and once again announce the hours and serenade all within hearing distance with delightful melodies.
