In certain ancient cultures, a "death knell" was traditionally the bell sound used to announce a death. Emil Richards bought it from the late percussionist Chet Ricord's estate in the 1980s. The bar is 4 feet tall, and internally, six different resonators which snake around help give the death knell its characteristic eerie sound.
