I am looking for a bell for my old Dunelt.
What do people here like? My use is mostly one the local 2.5mi MUP, it would be nice if it would get through to half the Ipodders and clumps of conversationalists, the other half would not hear an air raid sirin, without scaring the run of the mill walkers half to death.
There seems to be the Japanese PING style, the European DING DONG! style, and the Englist BRINNNG BRINNNG! style. Which do you like best? And which sounds better brass, aluminum, or steel?
I understand that most of the modern ones do not sound as good as the vintage ones, what do you think? Can one get a decent new one? Or a reasonably priced old one?
Or should one go with a horn because modern Americans have no idea what a bell means any more?
