I think it is unanswerable simply because it is down to personal preference. 
Some people will prefer one foundry's bells, some will prefer another. It is 
all down to what you happen to like.

I don't have much experience of the overseas foundries, but I am sure that 
either of the major English ones would do a quality job. The best advice I 
can offer is to try to listen to and look at bells by foundries you are 
interested in, then make your choice.
