I recently rang a 1/4 at Beachampton. The board on the wall proclaims they are G & J and tuned to the true harmonic principle. They are not bland, but if typical of true harmonic tuning the idea would not have caught on!

Yes, true harmonic tuning does not mean that a ring is good. Some true harmonic rings could be described as bland.

In rings like Wrexham, some of the individual bells may sound a bit crap, but as a ring they are magnificent.
