German makers of ultra-top-of-the-line sound equipment, especially stuff dealing with all things bass. You won't find many Glockenklang products in your typical equipment mail-order catalogue; they don't sell all that well to their usual customers because they're very expensive. But also very good; in fact they keep spawning rave reviews and they're used as a quality reference by many other manufactures. Their 'Bugatti' line of solid-state bass amplifiers are among the finest, if not the finest in the world. They don't make anything tube-based, though.

Their company name is kind of cute to a German who understands it, as it is a poetical word for "sound of a bell" or rather "sound as clear as a bell's".
