    "School Bell" sound needed

    We need some "School Bell" type sounds for our new wireless bell system, but I dont want to go with a traditional school bell type sound I want to try something different.

    We need two sounds one to get peoples attention for things like announcements but not too intrusive and another sound that will be the actual school bell. Neither sound can sound like a fire alarm.

    The wireless bell system can handle mp3 files.

    Has anybody got any suggestions?

    How about you use a keyboard in the music dept to make something up and record it yourself?

    I have no musical talent whatsoever and I thought this way would be quicker and more fun.

    Could you use a mobile phone ringtone? Plenty of ringtone site out there on t'web. You could always try the Emporers Theme from Star Wars


    EDIT: I can see it now...

    It's time for German, "Da, Da, Da, Da-Da-Da, Da-Da-Da"

    Surely as a bunch of geeks we should be suggesting the communication whistle from Star Trek?

    Or just be original and record a lovely voiced lady going "ping pong this is an announcement", and "ping pong All Change Please"
