How does the shape of this bell compare to others in the ring?
Here, the shape of all the bells are compared by reducing their size so they all have the same radius at the soundbow.
Then we can see if the founder made bells taller, wider or the same shape as different sized bells were created.

Tonal Analysis
Is this bell in tune with itself?

This shows each harmonic relative to what it should be relative to the Nominal
taking Simpson Tuning as an ideal.
A positive figure shows that the harmonic is sharp, a negative figure shows that it is flat. There are 100 cents between notes on the scale.
