and slowly play it again by Count from the rightest to the leftest for 1 or 2 time then send the VDO to me

If that is your clock, that is very nice!

What exactly is wrong with your clock? Are you just wanting to learn about the chimes?

Your concerns are most definitely not unwelcome here so definitely ask questions!

I already know the notes ofThe Poliam La Polite And Langelus De La Mer chime by check in my 4AIRS

But As I know in Thailand I think nobody have the 4 AIRS That can play On Wave Of Blue and Old Steeple chime
My friend in Singburi has 4 AIR 2 of them but it play Poliam La Polite And Langelus De La Mer chime Like the one I have

So Please help me to find the information to get the data of this 2 chimee as much as I could too
I try everywhere I could But I think it's doesn't help me enough

Thank You / Kob Koon Krub

Thank You! I think this could help me more easier than I search

But Do you know the sound of rods notes that could play Old steeple and On Wave of Blue?
Do you have VDO of it? or Do you have a picture of how much of chime rods that could play this 2 song?

Thank You Kob Koon Krub

No my rods didn't broken
But I want to know
I've seen that chime rod(s) witch could plat the On wave Of Blue and Old Steeple will be ""slope"' position

But my chime rod(s) is in "vertical" position
The things I want to know now is

1 Could I use my vertical rods and then adapt to this 2 song? I don't know will I can find the slope rods
2 If I can't use my chime rods Where could I find the FFR 10 rods and slope that could play? Or anybody have and want to sell it?
Could you tell me sir?

I’m not sure if I’m understanding correctly. Do you have a 4 airs Ffr clock with songs On the Waves of Blue and Old Steeple?

So as far as I know, there were not “sloped” rods but a sloped rod block. You can use vertical rods as long as they screw into the rod block.

I don’t know the logistics in Thailand but the best bet to getting chime rods is to have someone tune them.

You must find somebody to tune your chime rods.

If you want to change your melody, I would suggest to not to because that would be changing the history of the clock.

I don’t know where you find a rod block that’s sloped because these clocks are super rare around here in America (where the NAWCC is located).
You have to import the clock from other countries if you can’t find it in Thailand.

I want to know

You see? my rod block and chime rods is stay in vertical position and my chi,e rods did't in slope position

If I could find or buy a new one but the chime rods stay vertical position like me again (didn't have same shape of rod block and slope rods) Will I can use this vertical positon of this chime rods and block to tune it rods without find the new rod block sir?

Thank You

Your clock should chime on both vertical chime rods and sloped but you will need to bend the hammers to adjust striking the rods.
To be clear, there are no “sloped rods”. There are only blocks that mount the rods at an angle.

But if I can't find the blocks that mount the rods at an angle Could I use the blocks with normal vertical rods and tune it to right sound? (if I could find)

(I think the FFR 4 AIRS might be a lot of in Thailand But it is a secret rare the clock collector in Thailand is very cheresh this clock very much)

You can. You don’t need different chime rods. They are the same rods for all Ffr melodies.
You will need a different chime barrel to create a different melody.
Good luck with finding the FFR clock with the chimes you like! These are beautiful clocks! I’ve always wanted one! Please take care of your clock and enjoy it.
