Tubular Quad Chime Quartz Clock Movement

The Tubular Quad Chime Clock Movement is a quartz clock movement that features clear, vibrant, resonant chimes that are reminiscent of the tubular chimes you'd hear from a Grandfather clock. This quartz clock movement plays Westminster, Ave Maria, "Bim-bam", or gong on the hour and quarter hours. There is a sound switch on the back of the movement for Night Off. When selected, the melodies will not chime between the hours of 11 p.m. and 5:45 a.m. The 15 1/2" lead wires allow for proper positioning of the speaker. Use with a 16" or 22" breakaway pendulum rod and your choice of bob, both sold separately. The pendulum hook is 3/4" from movement's front.

Tubular Quad Chime Quartz Clock Movement is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The great features mean heads turn when it chimes! Although a bit pricey for my little project, I decided to go ahead & put this unit in a mechanical movement regulator wall clock case. It fit easily, with an extra shortening of the pendulum. A friend heard it chime, & rounded the corner into the family room, expecting to see a grandfather clock. He was completely blown away! When we have guests, I switch from Bim Bam to Westminster. It always starts a migration to the family room. Bottom line is a great tone that does not sound electronic, & well worth the money. Don't forget to double check your measurements

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Nice Tubular Chime Sound but There are Issues In my opinion this product is cheaply made for the price. I had to send the first movement back because the chimes would only play at the lowest volume setting. I received a replacement and the chimes would not play when the volume was set to approximately 60% or above. However I did not return the second movement because the volume set to about 50% was loud enough for me and I didn't want to go through the hassle of another return.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great disappointment I never expected to be as dissatisfied with this purchase as I am. The first movement I received could never synchronize the number of hourly chimes with the actual hour. But I must say that a replacement was sent out to me promptly. The replacement work fine for a couple of weeks. Now it chimes only three notes each quarter hour. Never as it should and does not chime the hour at all. I would not feel as bad if this was a $10.00 item but it was much more. I hope to be able to get a refund when I am able to call customer service. I see no point in another replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tubular Quad Chime Quartz Clock Movement - 11/16" I bought this clock movement with the long shaft so I can mount the face on a 3/8" thick piece of acrylic plastic. This was so I can mount it in the clock box easier and also it would set the pendulum back a little more. I then very easily mounted the mechanism on the plastic using the canter nut and two #4 screws. I then installed the batteries and walla! the clock works! I chose the 4x4 Westminster and adjusted the volume. The volume was adjustable from very low to quite loud. I then followed the instructions very carefully to adjust the time. Again, success! I had bought the brass rod and bob for the pendulum and decided the rod was to mickey mouse. So I glued a 1/16" x 3/4" x 20" piece of wood onto it and stained it to match the clock box. I am very pleased with the finished results. Also I am impressed with the accuracy of the unit. The timing must be crystal controlled. Dan Allen

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great......at first Bought, installed it, ran for about 14 to 18 months then it started losing chimes. When it was supposed to do lets say the 45 minute Westminster it would chime 11 notes rather than 12. Then it got worse and would lose 2 or 3 notes. Right now it won't even do the Bim Bam. While it was working the tubular sound is simply amazing. Like another poster said, "If it was a $10 movement I might be upset." But this mocvement is NOT inexpensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sounding electronic movement The tubular quad chime quartz movement was packed well & received on time. I replaced a mechanical works in a Linden wall clock with a little modification. It keeps excellent time & the chime tone is just fantastic. It has chime volume, 4 different chimes & late night off switch.
