Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. There is only one way to soften the sound that you can try without a technician coming to your home you can use a pair of needle nose pliers and gently bend the hammers up so they are all 3/16" to 1/4" above the chime rods at rest this will soften the melody on your chimes this is how I fix the problem at my shop. Try this options out and let me know what happens and if you do not feel comfortable doing this yourself let me know your zip code location and I can locate a clock repair shop in your area.
