Pseudo-carillons

(instruments that sound "like a carillon" but fall outside the definitions of a carillon by the World Carillon Federation and by the Guild of Carillonneurs in North America [The [http://www.gcna.org Guild of Carillonneurs in North America] (GCNA) defines a carillon as "a musical instrument consisting of at least two octaves of carillon bells arranged in chromatic series and played from a keyboard permitting control of expression through variation of touch. A carillon bell is a cast bronze cup-shaped bell whose partial tones are in such harmonious relationship to each other as to permit many such bells to be sounded together in varied chords with harmonious and concordant effect." The GCNA's Co-Webmaster defines a "traditional carillon" as one played from a traditional baton keyboard, and a "non-traditional carillon" as a musical instrument with bells but played from an electric keyboard or by any automatic method. Anything else is not a carillon according to the GCNA – and definitively not a carillon according to the [http://www.carillon.org/eng/fs_orga.htm World Carillon Federation] .] )

*Some modern instruments (such as some made by Schulmerich) use semantra (rectangular metal bars roughly the diameter of a pencil but of varying lengths) struck by an electric solenoid. The resulting sound feeds through an electronic amplifier into audio speakers. Though sometimes called 'carillon' as well, these do not conform to the definitions given by the World Carillon Federation or the Guild of Carillonneurs in North America.
