Well The 12-51 7A dial came today and I am very happy with it. Thank you VERY much Tom B. Is it me or do the 7A's have a smoother feel to them than a 7D on wind up?

I like the 7-A's better myself.

I agree Kenny, the 7A's always seemed smoother and quieter to me too.

do the gongs have the 54A/55A/54B/54B etc stamped into the metal around the screw holes? maybe it was just an earlier marking method?

I have a 12/50 ringer with all the same markings including "19" on the gong.
