    Using this sound instead of a beeping sound in a ping pong game. Thanks for uploading this! :)

    This is a lovely sample and distinct from many others coming up under a search for "bell". It has a simple, clean, and positive sound, which is exactly what I need. I'm using it in an audiobook. Will give attribution with the released product. Much thanks to Inspector J!

    Using it in a PSA disaster preparedness video, to indicate the location of family members on a map following a major event; mom, dad, son, daughter, etc...
