I have a Dream 22" ride and it is all wash and no ping. Is it hammering or lathing that would produce more ping?
Or would cutting it down in dia help?
Mike, from what i've read, cutting it down wouldn't help as it would throw off the weight and tension of the cymbal due to changing its dimensions. If i understand what i've read hear, lathing it would help, as well as hammering; lathing gives the brighter cut that you may be looking for, but hammering also dries it out, so i guess im not really sure which would work better. I'm unfamiliar with these rides, are the a fairly flat bow or a pronounced one? I believe the flatter the washer, if i understand correctly, and the more bowed the more pronounced. i guess this doesn't really help now that i'm reading it, lol.
