Re: NBC Chimes
By Walt Reid

With all of this interest in the RCA tones, does anyone know the origin or significance of a three note mini instrument that has metal bars and tubular metal resonators. The bars are brown with NBC engraved and the resonator is brown wrinkle finish paint. Sound quality seems to be inferrior to what would ordinarily be needed for on-air use.

Any information greatly appreciated.

Walt Reid those RCA Mikes!
