Andy Peels ones are very good (peelsbells on here) very well made, great tone and they last to. A lot of people rate Nobel bells but personally they don't suit my hearing I find there too high a pitch IMO and much prefer low pitched bells.

The best bells are the ones that you can hear! We are all different and our hearing ranges change with age as well. The only real way to pick bells is to go through a good number and try them. If that is not possible then just go for the best make you can. I think Peels have been mentioned Valardie (not sure of spelling) are excellent and I'm sure there are several more. Take your pick but without hearing them yourself you are in a lottery!

Velarde.....( took over from acorn asborne bells) have yet to find a bell of equal quality but I havent had a 'peels' bell yet and only heard good reports. Velarde seem pretty hard to get hold of so andy peels seems a good option and seemed like a nice bloke ( he returned a call when I left a message which cant be bad!)

I think Peelsbells are the best, top quality and excellent craftmanship. He can make bells to what ever tone suits. Im sure he makes them by hand and not pressed out which may cause cracking in the future, i have even heard that if you dont like the sound or pitch when sent out to you he will replace.:lol:
He has just started up again after several months with out a house with different thickness material, so the bells go that extra season.;) I dont put anything else on my birds or is that because they are free.:supz:
Hope this helps just jump in whats 16 its not the earth :rolleyes:
