    UFIP Bravo flat china???

    Howdy! My 1st post in a zillion years. I've been playing & collecting vintage Italian cymbals for some years now.

    Unwarping a cymbal ?

    Folks , I picked up a few things locally including a paper thin 15" Zildjian trans stamp cymbal. This cymbal is paper thin & sounds like a Chinese cymbal, beautiful. However, its hella warped? I'm not super concerned but curious if anyone has successfully flattened an old warped cymbal...
