The problem with "bell-like" is that there are many different kinds of bells, and they don't sound at all alike.

Pianoloverus,
Not sure I can give you a great answer but I will try.

The "tests" I use involve listening to the pianist play if possible. I observe how they use the piano and ask questions about ease of expression and character of voice. So my use of the word "test" may not be highly accurate. I ask them to play me something they think works well on the piano and also show me what doesn't work.


In a seemingly infinite universe-infinite human creativity is-seemingly possible.
According to NASA, 93% of the earth like planets possible in the known universe have yet to be formed.

Sally Phillips has a very nice video explaining voicing, which I think is also relevant here.

At the end, the final tone is round, full, with good sustain.
