The reflectors aren't stock. I grabbed a set of Proline reflectors from GC and replaced the stock gold bells with them. I much prefer them in both look and feel. I think the speed knobs are actually superior in terms of actually changing volume and tone settings on the fly, but I don't like the look as much.
Hey. Glad to see that you've been to Bloomington. It is a classic mid-western college town and I've enjoyed my time here. We are coming off a cold winter, but spring is a beautiful time of year. I am 5 weeks from graduating from the law school I'll soon move on. At this point, I'm not sure where. During my first two years, I lived one block from the law school. I had a walking commute of 4 minutes door-to-door. I have a close friend in Philly who lives downtown. I was last there in August and I hope to get back there soon.
