- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
When I received this bell I was excited. I was impressed with the appearance and rich tone. I feel there is a design flaw though. Look closely at the picture and you will see that the ringer is only attached by one thin coil of a spring. After a few weeks of use- flicking the ringer back and forth wore the one coil attaching it to the bell, and it broke. Looking back it seems obvious that a thin steel spring would weaken under repeated back and forth tension.
