Safetran Vs Westinghouse Hybrid Bells

Post by Gametrain54321 » Sat Nov 10, 2018 1:02 pm

Which do you think is better: A Safetran Hybrid Bell or a Westinghouse Hybrid Bell? TBH, I like them both, so for me this is a hard question to answer.

Added a poll.
There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...

Is there a difference really other than the vendor?

Westinghouse ones use a lower-pitched gong that's usually painted black.

However, are the internals all the same?

I want to say so? I'd have to see pictures of the insides of both to be able to make an accurate judgement on that.

I like the Safetran Hybrid Bell the best because I like the sound, the rate and the color of it.
