Hi all, just curious as to what factors make the use of a bell  bench better or worse than the use of a mass bench.  Seems to me it depends mostly on appearance and materials available.  Thanks for the input as I try to decide what design I want to build.

Hi Mango,  Two places I find that explain it well are here Flues vs Bells  and here Bell Theory.  Report back when you've finished your homework!
