Actually, come to think of it...WABCO is not listed. I'd choose WABCO, and US&S Teardrop... :Smile:

WABCO has been added, but it reset the votes, so everyone has to re-vote again.

Although it's not listed as an option, I'm gonna say my favorite is the Westinghouse Hybrid. Main reason is because it's the bell I've heard most in my life and I'm very familiar with it...

1) Teardrop

2) Westinghouse Hybrid

3) WCH

Teardrops are by far my favourite, either the US&S or the McKenzie & Holland ones from Australia (I'm an Aussie). I like the clicking sound they make, and their slower ring rate. The shape of the housing looks awesome.

I like the sound of the gong on the Westinghouse Hybrid, they are a well made and long lasting bell. It's a real shame they are no longer made.

I really like the WCH bells as well as their predecessors (WRRS and FS). There are still plenty in Australia and I'm used to the sound, but really I'm not that fussy. I like all mechanical bells.
