..... All Tower Bells ..... Chimes our specialty.

Tubular bells.

Are hollowed out   steel   bronze  tubes, hung vertically from a wood frame.
I have seen them in multiples as a chime and tower clock ring of less than 8 bells.

They are suspended by rope from the frame, are very heavy and are rung by a device at the top.
They have a more clangy ring than regular bells.

They appear to be descendents of tubes in old tall case clocks.

The American manufcturers were Durfee, U.S.Tubular, Deagan and a just discovered Rowland H Mayland of Brooklyn.
None appear to be made now.
