I wouldn't mind hearing some reviews on the black metal bells.

I am probably getting one in the next few months but wouldn't mind hearing someones first hand opinion.

I have one, great bell sound.

Sounds deeper than it looks and isn't nearly as pingy and overbearing as the Zil-Bel. I have them both on my kit and they tend to work pretty well together.

Modern Drummer gave them a great review.

Once I get my hats I think the next cymbal purchase (or the one after that) will be either the black metal bell or possibly one of these Saluda prototype bells I saw in PDF...

Are there any other ones you would suggest or not suggest. I don't want something pingy, but really haven't researched it much.

i've never played anything else but I own a bell. It gets the job done, I realized after buying it and messing with it, I'm just fine with the bell on my ride. Nothing against the actual Stagg Bell though. They look cooler than other bells I've seen.

Theres my 2 cents on Stagg...

I guess bells to me just look fragile at best. I really don't know because I haven't used one and I don't think anyone in my area uses one.

I guess I'm just wondering if it's worth the money.

staggs are actually awesome for the price...

their chinas are soo good... id recommend the 18" Double Hammered for any metal/loud drummers...
Drumming is my passion.

Do the bells have along sustain? I've been looking for a bell with short sustain.

I just tried a medium crash. It sounded nice, more like a Sabian HH but a little pinger.
