Set-up of the ringing floor is a massive endeavor.  Do not attempt this at home, kids.  You just don’t have the space required!

While the Raleigh Ringers set up, Hart Morris took a few moments to play with one of the most unusual instruments they unpacked.  These are variously known as shaker chimes or Degan Organ Chimes.  They produce a totally unique sound.

 

Ah, bass bell envy.
