Hi Derekman,

The pedal on a set of professional chimes is a sustain pedal, just like the right pedal on a piano. There will be a mute bar on the chimes that the pedal will lift, enabling them to "decay" naturally. When you lift your foot off the pedal, the mute bar will fall and mute the chimes' ringing. Hope this helps.
