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.
