Maximum Response Conversion:
This is a process that provides many of the same benefits as a tuning bell conversion at a lesser cost. Like the tuning bell, by removing the two cross braces on the bell and re-mounting it you not only alleviate any built-in tension from when the bell was originally mounted but the bell is now allowed to resonate more freely without constraint. The most common characteristic of this set up is a FAR more superior response. Another reason this may suite some players well is that the process is reversible. If for some reason the player does NOT like the new feel, or has more serious reservations about having it done it can be put back the way it was (at an additional cost of course) since the bell tail is not being cut off for a tuning bit like on the tuning bell. This set-up can be easily upgraded to the full tuning bell conversion if the player decides they want to add the option of being able to tune with the bell for the additional intonational advantages and the interchangeability of different bells.
