Hi Sue,

There is no book on S&W - just in case anyone else thought so too. The Description Books are the records/pattern books correct name, but it can lead to confusion, especially if you've not been lucky enough to go through any of them  ;) :)

As for resonance, that can be indicative of pre-war Powell, but I guess may well happen with S&W as well.

I've just tried 'pinging' a known Nazeing bowl, and the ring was o.k. but nothing special.   But a couple of oldish Wfrs. bowls (large diameter and shallow), almost knocked me out of the room.    I suspect it may be as much to do with the shape and thickness as anything else.

Hi Paul,

its a tricky one for us amateurs

Although my answer might not be written in such a way that you will get it immediately, its pointers will set you on the right road. More importantly it will make you work, which believe me will do you more good, as when it clicks it will stand you in good stead for a lot more diagnosing and give a great deal more confidence :) ;) :)

Just rember we were all there once.....and you're further on than someone else whose just started  ;)

Anyway, if I put it all down here what will I have left to write in my autobiography? :o 8) ;) :)

Paul,

I would say the result of 'pinging' is more dependant on the metal , although the shape will help. For instance there are two Monart shapes that ring, but the rest tend to go down the route of a dull 'dong'.

Nazeing has a brighter sound than Monart, but does not resonate.
