This is an index to the 53 existing rings in Asia and the Pacific Rim region, in order by the pitch of the bourdon (heaviest bell of the main keyboard range). Instruments with the same bourdon pitch are in descending order by number of bells, then by missing semitones, then by country. The key to the four column headings is at the end of the table, along with some other notes. Only rings of 8 or more bells are indexed and described, but rings of 5 or 6 bells are identified below the table.

Key to column headings:
The table is sorted first on the pitch of the bass bell, then on the number of bells, then on the chromatics indicator, then on city. The actual weight of the bass bell is not used.
The weight range indicators for each octave are only gross approximations, and should not be taken to represent any specific bell.
NOTE, however, that rings of 5 or 6 bells which are part of a chime of 8 or more bells are described here. They appear in the table above under the number of bells in the chime.
Separate rings of 5 or 6 bells are described on the ANZAB Website, as follows:
|Sydney/Broadway, AU||F, middle octave|
|South Brisbane, AU||G#|
|Beechworth, AU||D, treble octave|
|Wellington (Old St.Paul's), NZ||D#|
