Water Proof Cycling Bell?

I'm talking about the traditional mechanical types, but is there such a thing as a waterproof cycling bell? My one (cheap, came with the bike) goes from a pleasant ring to a dull thud at the hint of moisture. As my journey can take me along shared paths, towpaths and cycle lanes with lots of pedestrian encroachment, I do find a couple of rings of the bell when approaching a blind bridge bend, or subway useful. So any recommendations for when it is wet?

Never had one that maintains its tone when wet.

I've got one of these on Bike A - and one of these on Bike B -

Both seem so far (year or so) to be fine in the rain.

I have a Crane bell too. Commuting in Glasgow means it mostly gets used wet. It works perfectly in all weather.

I was going to buy a Knog Oi but reviews suggested they're too quiet when dry and completely useless when wet.

I have a Crane "Karen" bell, which I mainly bought because I thought the name was funny. It seems to sound OK in the rain.

Does it ask to see the manager in a loud shrill tone?
