“Noah Bell” is the common name given to a distinct type of bell hand-manufactured in India by ancient and inherited traditions. Some monasteries in India are credited with manufacturing Noah Bells for hundreds of years. The profits from the selling of authentic Noah Bells are used to finance the activities of the particular monastery which fashioned them.These bells are popular among collectors because of their intricate resonances, warmth and the mystique that surrounds them. One tale proclaims that these bells are divinely imbued with the power to ward off demons. These are especially useful in creating mood effects in ensembles. Bells are measured by size of bell, not top ring or ringer.
