> I understand that the treble at the Bullring is measurably quieter 
than the 2nd because it is thicker and therefore there isn't as much 
clapper throw. The clappers in the front four here were, I believe, 
replaced with heavier ones soon after the bells were installed.

One of the problems with that bell is the internal profile - almost 
an "L" shape - with the clapper hitting just beneath the corner. 
There isn't much space for the clapper throw, and the trebles now 
have clappers with extended flights.
