Default Re: The Cigarette Trick

Seems like a pretty interesting idea. Is there any way to do this using something other than a cigarette? I don't smoke, I don't want to start smoking and I don't want to buy cigarettes just to fix drum heads. Could something like a lit matchstick work?

EDIT: I googled it and found out that Jim Keltner used to hold his drum heads over a lit candle to make the dents disappear. I'll try it someday.
