I can't remember why I bought this bell originally, but one night about 6 months ago I was just too tired to walk up the stairs or even to yell at my kids to come down for dinner, so I rang the bell and they all ran down to see why in the world I was ringing a giant cowbell. The next night, they knew it meant food. It just took a few more days before it had the Pavlovian effect I desired. Next, I began using it 5 minutes early to gather the troops to set the table for me. That was what I now call phase 1 of cowbell training. Then, I had a brilliant idea. If it works at night, maybe it will work in the mornings, too! It was a different sort of process, but I have been more than satisfied with the results. It began with the 6:30 a.m. "clang-clang-clang" followed by 3 loud thumps heard overhead. "MOM. WE ARE AWAKE NOW. PLEASE STOP RINGING THE BELL." Next day: 6:30 am (ring, repeat) "MOM, FOR GOODNESS' SAKE. STOP RINGING THE BELL!!!!" This phase continued for about 3 weeks. Until yesterday. 6:28 am: "IS IT TIME TO GET UP? I DIDN'T HEAR THE BELL. I'M UP. PLEASE DON"T RING IT." Success. By the way, it is a good idea to hide the bell.

Well, I didn't purchase this for a sports game or anything...we have a cow bell our dog rings to go out, and we moved to a house that needs two bells in order to be heard from each end. It's not very loud, which was disappointing. I wouldn't put it on my own cow since I'd probably not hear it unless within 20 feet. I'd try another one first. Was really hoping for a loud, nice-sounding bell.

I used this for the Mount Baldy mountain top finish in the Tour of California bike race. It was the loudest of the bells around me. Pretty tall and loud. Connections seem strong.

I purchased two of these to hang on our front interior door so I can hear if anyone (young child, older grandparent) opens the door. They are plenty loud and have served their purpose. They look nice too.

BEST PRODUCT TO GIVE AS A GIFT TO A PARENT OF A 2 YEAR OLD!! This cowbell nightmare was purchased for my son by my deaf wife. She sits in happy enjoyment watching our child vigorously shake this cowbell in the air while running around like a crazy person all hopped up on Mountain Dew... FOR HOURS ON END. Any attempt to remove the cowbell from my child's hands is met with a wailing sound that rivals an air raid siren. He goes to sleep with it stuffed in his diaper for safekeeping and I know when he wakes by the CALANG-A-LANG-CALANG-A-LANG that often heralds his desire for a 3 AM feeding. Occasionally I am lucky enough to get hit in the head with it as I am doubled over with my hands on my ears trying to run away in my mind from the incessant noise based mental terrorism.

5 STARS GIVEN IN THE HOPES THAT WITH GOOD RATINGS THIS PRODUCT WILL BE USED TO MAKE OTHERS FEEL MY PAIN.
