I have recently invested in a Martantz CDR300 portable CD recorder which 
I intend to use for recording bells. It's going to take a bit of getting 
used to setting it up, especially if I can't be with it to get recording 
levels. It is mains powered but they do a battery pack. Down side is 
it's very expensive. I bought mine from the USA via e-bay. I had to pay 
import duty and VAT but it was still a lot cheaper than buying one in 
the UK.
