These bells are rather like an oboe that's been designed to sound like 
a flute, or a violin that been made to sound like a trumpet!   A bit of 
a pointless exercise really!

We currently have a small set of Federation bells on loan at Swan Bells 
and they sound best (I use the word very loosely!)if struck half-way 
down the waist ...try making a clapper that will do that effectively!
