Observation On Mauthe Mantle Clocks
The following is just my take on Mauthe mantle clocks, if you feel differently share it with the rest of us.
I own a nice Mauthe clock with a three rod chime bar. The movement does appear to be well made however the chimes/chime block sounds very "tinny" to me. I ave adjusted the hammers and the block is mounted well to the case and yet it still has that "tinny" sound? has anyone else experienced this?
I recently purchased another Mauthe mantle clock and this one has a single coil gong.
I am anxious to hear this one!
Update: It still has the same tinny sound? On closer observation these movements simply allow the hammers to free fall onto the gong/chimes. Were most other movements the hammers are actually driven by the spring.
