We have had the good fortune to replace our old controller with a new unit and are enjoying the bells.
As a result , we have available for no charge the firmware (chips with songs and bell tones) for a Verdin Singing Tower Carillion. It has most of the Standard Hymnal Songs. We would be able to take care of shipping this if someone was interested.
We also have a non functioning controller that some clever person might be able to repair, or use to repair theirs. This is about a 40 lb unit, so pickup would be a better option if someone was interested. The issue identified was a bad hard disk and disk controller. We are using the amplifier with the new controller so that is not available.
