> Well goodness gracious me! Joking aside I tend to agree that the heavy bells become over dominant and the whole effect can become rather monotonous. I seem to get to hear rounds a lot anyway, and back rounds too when ringing plain bob etc. and what's more you get it on all of the bells and not just the front and back! There will never be consensus when it comes to musical taste and thank goodness for that; I am all for variety. Of one thing I am however certain, I wish I could ring just a fraction as well as this.
