I recently had restored a Herschede hall clock gifted from my parents. The primary reason for the restoration was bearing and arbor wear and general maintenance after decades of reliable enjoyment. Upon the movement’s reinstallation after restoration, the chimes ring substantially less loudly and clear. The strike hammer leathers were replaced during restoration which naturally will be softer than the material which had hardened and degraded over the decades. I realize that the tone naturally will be softer than prior to restoration which the worn leather made unusually loud. I alsounderstand that volume and clarity should improve to a certain degree as the new material compacts and hardens. But the extent to which the chimes ring softer and less clearly seems to be far more than the new leather would cause by itself. Does any kind of adjustment exist which governs the strength of the strike? Thanks in advance for any helpful insight.
