Has anyone had a large ride that took years to get to break in? Recently, I wound some marimba mallets and started doing roll sessions, really mellowed the cymbal out. I had the cymbal for maybe five or six years, but it is a hefty 24" medium A, with lots of bow, admittedly a couple years I didn't play it much at all. I wonder, if you let a cymbal rest, does it lose some of its, "break in", and need to be re warmed up? Not only does it sound mellowed, but it also has more jiggle and wobble.
