Latin Percussion Bell Diablo

Hey everyone,
So I was thinking of putting a nice, big, clunking rocking cowbell into my kit. My kit is a Gretsch Catalina Club Rock kit in red sparkle (sizes are 24" kick, 14" snare, 13" tom and 16" and 18" floor toms) I also have 6 cymbals (sizes are 15" hi hats, 18" crash/ride, 20" crash, 21" crash, 21" ride, 19" crash).

I play music such as Led Zeppelin, Queens Of The Stone Age, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mark Lanegan, Foo Fighters, Them Crooked Vultures, Screaming Trees, Pearl Jam etc.

I considered the LP Classic Ridge Rider Cowbell but I found that was a little too high pitched. Then I discovered the Bell Diabo.

What are people's opinions on this cowbell? Any pros/cons etc.
If you don't own one here is a video:

Hello,
I play that exact bell, besides looking very cool, I think it sounds excellent!! . It has great projection and if it rings a little too much I pop in a couple of moongels and I'm good to go !!
Peace
