The bells have a similar sound to a bell set 64d or a 300 series telephone.

---------------------------------------

 

GEC 64D Bells in mint unused condition

The GEC 64d bells are semi-weatherproof and can installed inside a house or in a reasonably sheltered position outside.
They are ideal if you need a neat small bell which is easy to install. They can be fixed to a wall or shelf, or just tucked out of the way.
The bell gongs are the same as those fitted to a 300 series telephone, so will have a loud melodious ring.
The design and use of these bells date from the 1930's.
They are powered by the telephone line and do not need to be located near a mains socket.

They are all in new unused condition and have been stored in their original boxes for nearly 30 years.
They are fully converted with three metre lead with a BT plug on the end ready to plug in.

Available in Black, Maroon, Blue, Ivory and Green (Brass bell version only)

 

 

Bell set type 1A is the older wood version of a No 26 bell set.

 

Other bells such as Danish and Belgian are also in stock. Please call me for details.

All these bell sets are supplied with a 3 metre cord enabling them to be plugged in to a telephone socket.

Two way adaptor 1.75
Simply unplug your existing telephone, plug in the two way adaptor and then plug your telephone and bell set into the adaptor. It could not be easier.


All these bells are powered by the telephone line so do not need a mains socket nearby. They will work normally with both dial and modern push button telephones.

 *If you are considering buying one of these bell sets because you are hard of hearing, it is well worth calling into the shop. I have a good selection of the 64d bell sets on display which have been specially adjusted for these circumstances. You can hear them ring and choose the one which suits you best.

Technical note.  I am often asked if they can be used as door bells. Generally speaking they cannot, as they are designed to be used on an AC system at a frequency of around 20-25 Hz.
