    How do I clean a cymbal

    I'm not sure. I've never tried to clean a Paiste with anything other than soap and water.

    How do I clean a cymbal

    I wonder if the hot water would do anything to the metal. Probably not, but that would be my only concern.

    Hey Evans Drumheads!!! Your New Logo Is Ugly and Dumb

    Your initial post was about the "fat, schmushed-together lettering" aspect of the logo so that's what I looked at. The point of my post is that the "fat, schmushed-together lettering" really isn't much different than it was a decade ago since that's what you called out @bpaluzzi for.

    Hey Evans Drumheads!!! Your New Logo Is Ugly and Dumb

    Looking at a screenshot I took from a 2012 issue of Modern Drummer compared to the logo currently on the Evans website, the actual lettering for the word "Evans" hasn't really changed much. The kerning has just been applied more consistently, and the letters have a little more internal space.

    PDP TOM SIZES

    From what I can tell, they don't offer a 13" tom in the regular Concept line. They did with the Concept Classics, but only in natural/stained colors with wood hoops. I think you would have to contact them about a custom order, which would probably be quite pricey.
