    some basic questions on snares

    these questions have been in my head for a while and i just wanted some of you wise and fine looking gentlemen (or ladies if your on here) to clarify.

    playing evenly

    this is a very ambiguous question, but its something i cant get right.

    making a dark bell

    I have an old crappy ZBT ride hanging around and im looking to get a bit more character out of the bell so i was thinking of hand hammering the bell a little and/or attempting to "make" a dark bell. I know it will never be the same as a proper dark bell cause its totally different but... yeh...

    i dont get it...

    i dont get how it works when people say "I was thinking about trading my zildjians for saludas." Do they just send them to Jamie and get saludas in return? or do they sell their old cymbals and then but saludas?

If you have the chance listen to "Whats your name?" by Cypress Hill or "You Shit me to Tears" by The Tenants and you will know what im talking about but there is a multitude of...

    zildjians being made...

    out of curiosity do zildjians make any cymbals in Turkey? and are they even owned by the turks anymore? Cause, i could be wrong here and this could be a pointless topic but, i thought the lower down ones, planet Z's and stuff are made in china and the higher up ones, customs and stuff, are made...

    has anyone ever thought of...

    has anyone ever thought of an add on to a cymbal stand, just above the cymbal (u could even apply this to a rim clip on device) that has a pad u hit and then a brush on the end so painlessly you can change from sticks to brushes on the ride and then with the left use a rim shot to lighten things...
