Default Re: The Cigarette Trick

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

The keywords here being- 'used to'. Mylar has memory.

This is a good trick if your selling/taking pics of a kit, but the reality is, as soon as the treated area is struck again the dent comes back just like the original.

It works, but it doesn't work. A lighter, any flame, a heat gun etc. low heat is better.
