The problem with cowbell these days is that there are no more American-made cowbells, and the vintage ones are getting old and wearing out. The cheap Asian Rim bells don't produce the proper overtones and break easily, and the Russian manufacturers have taken to re-labeling smaller goat bells and calling them cowbells (although some people really like the "Winged C" bells).  
Don't forget the role of the drumstick in producing appropriate cowbell tone. There are some boutique manufacturers out there who will "platinum-match" your cowbell and drumstick, and the $3,000 it costs for a custom unit will be repaid many times in superior tone.  
Remember: Insist on the best!
