Everytime I think of something useful to add Bill gets there first!
All I can say is that I use a Camcorder and have found its response to be=
excellant for the tonal analysis of bells.
What might be even more surprising is that we have done some bell analysi=
s where the sound has been transmitted live over a mobile telephone to our =
PC in the office (OK home) and that still produces very good results for an=
alysis. However the frequency range is limited to approximately 300-3500Hz =
so one can miss low and high partials.

Finally the work Bill has done in this field ceases to amaze me. He has t=
aken our understanding of bells to a greater level. Keep it up Bill you are=
doing an excellant job.

For those who are interested about bells, we (Keltek Trust) have just acq=
uired 9 ex-Trinity House buoy bells (see www.keltek.org ). It don't think i=
t will be too long before some are hung for full-circle ringing. Any one kn=
ow of buoy bells being hung for ringing before?


I thought all buoys bell were hung for sounding by swinging!
