Do "ceramic fuses sound real bad"?

It was rather my impression that those who are fuse devotee's prefer ceramic over glass, because glass fuses "ring", or some other such rationale. I am a fuse agnostic. One reason for my attitude is that I don't get why one would pop a 100-dollar fuse into the typical crappy fuseholder and then dream that one is getting the full benefit of that fuse, assuming there even is a benefit. Thus, I, as a DIYer, never buy expensive fuses, but I do occasionally employ Acme cryo-treated silver fuses ($15 each) in concert with Acme fuse holders; I remove the stock fuse-holder and replace it with the Acme one. Would I claim that the results are a revelation? No. But it makes me feel slightly better.

By the way, did you mean "yours" or "your's". No apostrophe needed.
