Automatic chime of 1619 destroyed by fire in 1859. Carillon by vanAerschodt may have been automatic only until a klavier was supplied in 1911. Replacements from 1915 (or 1909-17?) are by De Smithske; an old report of bells by Sorensen appears wrong - may have been an installer. One bell (not identified) was "given away" before 1955. All restored and rehung on new frame in 2005 by Thubalka, with new clavier by Eijsbouts, who lightly retuned the old bells and supplied some replacements [not yet identified]; new keyboard and frame have space for future addition of four trebles. Lower belfry (beside clavier room and 20-hammer drum) has 4 swinging bells by Anker Heegaard, 1863; 3 also serve as clock bells. In carillon belfry is a huge pot-shaped hour bell (year and maker not recorded).
