    A beautiful Cherry finish, accented with a beveled, mirrored insert and four brass tubes means this chime will be a focal point in your home for years to come. This chime is capable of programming for up to three entrances, so you’ll never have to guess at which door your visitor is waiting for you.

    • Attractive Cherry finish with beveled mirrored insert is an elegant addition to a traditional or transitional décor providing many years of reliable service
    • Individual tones for up to three doors so you will always know where your visitor is; eight-note Westminster or four-note chime for front door, one-note for back door and a separate note for a side door
    • Adjustable volume control so you can control the volume for each door based on your home size and lifestyle
    • Chime wires to a 16-volt transformer so you are assured of uninterrupted service and are never dependent upon batteries (use transformer C905 or C915, sold separately)
    • Easily replace your current two-note wired door chime to this style without rewiring for a fast, simple redecorating touch

  • LA501CY is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great doorbell. Worth the money This is the loudest doorbell I could find (without getting a custom-made one). Easy to install. Uses 2 9V batteries when replacing a standard 2-chime bell (that comes in new homes). If you are installing it on drywall, you will need to buy drywall anchors (not expensive), as the ones provided will not do the job. Another hint: install the chimes with the hooks opening away from the wall, or they will have a tendency to fall off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it before the price cut I thought long and hard before ordering this doorbell system. The price was a little daunting but I wanted something with a little more sophistication than the traditional ‘ding-dong’ doorbell for my new home. This unit filled the bill and I am glad I purchased it. With every visitor, they and I know, I did not cut corners on my home. Since my purchase, the unit has dropped in price and now makes the decision a no brainer. Buy it…it is worth it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product sounds great. We were looking for a louder and chime sounding door bell. This product uses the hollow chime rods and they sound great. They are much louder than the old door bell. We can now hear the chimes through out the house when someone comes to the door. The only complaint we have, is one day for no reason, the mirror fell off of the face of the wooden cover. And it broke into a lot pieces. And I have been unable to locate a replacement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product We had a door bell with long chimes which broke after 45 years and had to be replaced. We looked everywhere and couldn't find another one with chimes until we found this websight. We were thrilled to find this chime doorbell and ordered it immediately. I love it completely - the sound is great and the service from Handlesets was terrific. We received it faster than we had expected and got it installed immediately. The color of the wood is beautiful and very true to the color mentioned. We are extremely pleased with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Westminster chimes Very clear website ... order process simple ... product was top quality with clear mounting/hookup instructions. Fully compatible with the 72 year old Nutone chimes that it replaced (used the old transformer and antique wooden housing and clock face).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the rich sound I love the sound of this chime. You can set it for 8 note Westminster or 4 note for the front door. I noticed that someone has asked if it hits each tube it does. I get so many compliments on it. People always say is that your doorbell? I have saved the cover from my older home which is the Nutone Grandeur, and have 2 of these in cherry finish as my home is large. It does have volume control as well. To hear the sound please go to youtube and search Nutone 8 note Westminster to see the chime (Grandeur model) and hear the sound.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Add class and unique sound! Door chimes like these are not easy to find today. Excellent craftsmanship, and very solid construction. The chimes are very nice, can be adjusted to different tunes, and can be set for both front and back door rings. Our earlier home had a wonderful old door chime, and this one comes close to it. Visitors always comment on how much they like the sound of our door chimes!

  • Continuous Power Installation

    I'd rather not have the batteries installed. I'd rather have the transformer provide constant power. In your installation guide you talk about "New Installation" with constant power or "Replacement Installation of 2 note chime" with battery power. The 2 different installations look the same on your diagram. What is the issue of replacement installation only being able to accommodate battery constant power instead of just getting constant power from the transformer?
    Asked by: Tim
    Thank you for your question about installing the LA501CY. In order for the LA501CY to cycle through the 4 or 8 note melodies , the chime must have a constant source of power. One wire from the secondary side of the transformer will be connected to terminal #2. The other side of the secondary side of the transformer is common and is connected to terminal #3. At the front door pushbutton ,one wire will be connected to the “F” terminal and the other wire at the front door pushbutton will be connected to terminal#3. Please contact our Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151 for further information or assistance.

    Are the tubes only decorative ?

    We had an older style doorbell (C-500) now damaged, that actually had plungers that struck the tubes to create the chime tones. As I understand. The newer ones only have plungers that strike a BAR to create the tones, and the tubes are only decorative. Can I buy just the solenoid board and tubes to repair the c-500, so it works as new ? Or is there a current model that I can scrounge the parts from and use them in the c-500
    Asked by: Genna
    Thank you for your question on the model LA501CY door chime. The LA501CY has plungers that come out and actually strike the long chime tubes, the same way the C500 does. The solenoid board (part number S99521400) and the long tube set (part number S99522069) for the C500 are both available through our Customer Service Department at 888-336-3948.

    RE: LA305WL Can't locate a dealer near Boston MA with it or 501 in stock

    Asked by: Jay
    Thank you for your question on the models LA305WL and LA501CY wired door chimes. The only suggestion we can give you is to use the “Dealer Locator” link at the top of our web site page to locate distributors in your area. Since these are high end chimes, many distributors may not have them in stock, but they can order them.

    Where can I find the parts numbers?
