    Butter on cymbals?

    I have a set of A customs, and would like to darken them up. I know that over time, oil from your hands fills in the lathes and darkens the sound of the cymbal...I know that butter has alot of oil, but of course is not the same as oil from your skin, but would it have somewhat the same effect? I...

    Shell Construction

I thought about using a slightly thicker shell all the way down - Say you were using 10x8, 12x9, 14x14, 16x16, and 22x18. I'm pretty sure, most of the time, the shell on a bass...

    Trick Throw Off Screws
