Re: bell sound samples (from DIY bells)
It's been awhile... I was trying to stay away from buying more (cracked) cymbals and was even successful for quite some time but couldn't resist those 2 - Zildjian Z-Custom crashes 18'', 19''. As usual, I got them via Ebay/2nd hand, they haven't arrived yet. They've already been 'repaired' by the previous owner.
Not sure whether to mod them into splashes (having enough intact area around the bell) or doing a straight to bell mod. - I had 2 Z-Custom bells before - they were extremely loud/cutting/glassy but I gave those to a drummer fellow, haha.
