No one is condemning it.
There is a marked difference in the style of hanging and fittings
between the 2 original firms and my own personal view is that the
E&S version is far inferior to that of Taylors. The best answer
would be Taylors bells, fittings, tuning and hanging in combination
with E&S prices but I doubt that is possible. It will be interesting
to see how this can be reconciled.
