I don't assume - I use my ears.  Times change,standards don't.  Regarding
clappers I still prefer the sound made by a good wrought iron clapper to
that of a clapper made entirely of SG iron and you do not need a string of
irrelevant letters after your name to distinguish between a good sound and
an indifferent sound.  It seems that a lot of people do not care as long
as there is  a bonk or similar sound so that they may count a place, and
all peals look the same in the Ringing World.  You cannot hear sound with
your eyes!
