The table below is an index to the 12 Central and South American traditional carillons, in order by the pitch of the bourdon (heaviest bell of the main keyboard range). The key to the four column headings is at the end of the table, along with some other notes.

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 state/province. 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.
