    New Paiste Giant Beat Crash+Giraffe

    So after about a month and a half of owning my new 20" Paiste Giant Beat Crash, I have some pictures. I haven't actually played it because of my back.

    What determines the color of a cymbal?

    I don't know if this has been posted but I'm just wondering. All I know is that brass has a yellow tint and B8 cymbals are different colors than B20 but why aren't all B20 cymbals the same color? The same with B8 cymbals? I have a 24" Paiste Giant Beat that is B8 alloy and it's brown. But at...

    After two years of having the same heads on my Supra, I finally bought some new heads. A Coated Emperor batter and a Snare Side Ambassador. The heads seemed fine out of the box. Since people complain about the heads being dead I did the little tap test to see if it produced a pitch, which it...

It had this ugly gray metallic finish that looks like he applied with some double sided tape used for flooring or something. The pattern is like double sided duck tape. I don't really know. So I looked underneath it and...

    Over the years I've been gathering vintage mounting hardware and such. My Rogers Swiv-O-Matic tom mounts are kind of rusty and the chrome is pealing off. I was wondering if I got them rechromed would anything happen to the engraved logo? Also, I've had the mounts for about a year now and I...
