Short term, I'd suggest a small piece of Moongel, or gaff tape. Or, perhaps, try to strike it differetly. I have a 60s Zildjian 22" ride that has a roar that can quickly dominate everything, but learning to approach it with more grace has it playing along much more nicely. ;)
Great info, as always. Thanks. :)
As far as size, they measure 13.25", if that helps at all. I can take more pics, just tell me of what and how to frame them. I've taken a couple of the bell(s), but I don't know what would help most.
They sound washy and old-school, like the hats on older jazz and classic rock records. Searching youtube the closest sounding 13" hats were similarly weighted 50s Zildjians. I know these definitely aren't that, but I didn't expect them to be. ;)
I kinda figured they weren't anything special, but...
I recently picked up a ddrum 13x7 Dominion snare, birch with an ash veneer. Seems well built, good edges and seams, decent finish, decent hardware.
Sounds pretty good, too. Needs new heads, though.
Definitely a good drum for a hundred bucks. ;)
I have two toms offset, and a 22" ride where the right tom would be normally, and a 20" ride left/below that above the low tom.
Both cymbals are low, because low and close is how it's all set up.
It's just more comfortable and easy for me there.
Good to know, thanks. I appreciate it.
So far, this cymbal is making me very happy. :)
It's a perfect complement to my other cymbals, almost like it was meant to be a set. It has a great darkness to the sound, and a complex crash with lots of color. In fact, I like it a bit more as a crash...
The cymbal got a bath last night in warm water and Dawn. Took off the chonky grunge, left the color and patina. Still some discoloration on the underside, but, underside.
It has a warm sound, with a crash almost like the Crash Of Doom, a decent bell, and a good wash that decays well, not too...
