 Re: Are Bb and A bells interchangeble?

Most older Selmers used the same bells (and barrels) on both Bb and A, but more recent ones can have bells designed to go with each instrument (likewise with barrels). If an A bell works on a Bb (and vice versa) with no problems, then there's no harm in using the 'wrong' bell on any given instrument.
