Big Wilf’s velcro-fastening church bell muffles

We are the leading church bell muffle manufacturer based in the UK.



Please see our measuring clappers page under ordering, for the shapes of muffles we can offer muffles to fit.

* you will need to have our half muffles with velcro straps for the secondary muffles to attach. Without the half muffles, there is no way of attaching the secondary muffles to a clapper.

All complete sets of new muffles are supplied in a complimentary embroidered storage bag with carrying strap.

Double set of muffles for Chester Cathedral.
