I have a Clarabella table organette which plays from a changeable
wooden barrel. It has ten steel pressure-operated reeds and eight bells.
It is currently under restoration but there is trouble with the bells.
While the highest pitched six bells are turned brass, nickel plated,
the bottom two and therefore largest bells are steel. The pitch on them
is very strange, leading me to believe they are possibly not original.
Does anyone have a Clarabella with a set of original bells who can tell
me the correct tuning for the two lowest pitched bells, please?
I only found one other example to put in the Organette book but that
has been sold on since I received details, so I cannot back check on it.
