This bell is loud and has a low pitch. It isn't particularly well finished, but for the price you cannot really complain if you are looking to add one to your kit as an experiment.
Sometimes you hit something and you don't like the sound and that is how I feel about this bell, but you've got to start out with something to learn that and for the price this is an excellent way to determine what you want from a more expensive bell.
Did I say it was quite loud? Like unbalanced with my hats if I use the bell as an alternative to them in patterns. I'd prefer a smaller more musical bell, but then it is a cowbell, an accessory to be honest.
