We're just about to buy some of Wilf's muffles for Worcester Cathedral. You
do need special paint. It's to produce a rough surface so the muffle gets
additional grip to stop it slipping (sorry about the double entendre). They
seem a good idea, especially for service ringing and for quickly putting
them on and taking them off.


Standard muffles are a hassle to put on (especially when bells are up). The
buckles often snap. We always use cable ties to ensure they stay on for

What are people's experience with Big Wilf's muffles as opposed to the
standard Whitechapel muffles? Is it true the clappers have to be
treated with a non-slip paint first?

Advice welcome.
