Re: bell sound samples (from DIY bells)
The tools I'm using have already been mentioned, plus pics - see posts #11 and #21:
This is what I've been using:
* disk cutter
* dremel tool (to cut out cracks or for O-zone styling)
* sanding block
* hand files
Not quite sure what tools you can use if you don't have e.g. a disk cutter - because that tool is super handy for cutting work. I would not recommend using tin snips because those will/can bend the edges and you don't want this to happen.
BTW, I've sold a few of those o-zoned cymbals, somehow I didn't really need them. Also bought a few new (cracked) cymbals, enough material to make splashes instead of straight-to-bell mods.
