I have never actually heard cup-shaped handbells being rung,(though I
have rung on Matt Smith's flower pot set!). Would they sound anything
like my modern Taylor set?


What is interesting is that Bill Butler makes no mention of hemi-spherical
handbells by Dunn, only ones by Wells of Aldbourne, and James Burrough of
Devizes. Hemisphereical bells were more commonly used as sheep bells, and
there are still people who remember their pleasant sound, as opposed to the
clonk of a nail in a tin which became increasingly common.
