We have recently recorded Leeds bells using an MP3 recorder (circa £200) and
a microphone (circa £70) and got a pleasing result after a bit of
experimenting - microphone suspended about 10 feet above the bells.

Thanks Bill-Much appreciated.
I have experianced some of the problems that you have
detailed above.
I have made recordings with cassettes recorders,two speed dictaphone
machines(mini cassette) and on an old Marconiphone reel to reel tape
recorder(of reasonable spec.)and would have to say that I would
appear to have got my best results using reel to reel and a cheap
Tandy omni-directional microphone(£2.99 about sixteen years ago).
I dont really know if a minidisc recorder would really be a
better option for me or a better mp3 system as I cant really see much
point in a minidisc recorder as I have a cd writer at home.
I look forward to downloading the trial version of the software you
reccomended. By the way,the full version is $69-You dont happen to
know if it is available in the U.K do you?
