    Developing L hand (for a right hander) accuracy, precision, and reliability, from a retired PT

    If you're right handed, you likely lack "proprioception" in your L hand and arm. Quick example: If you lack proprioception in your legs, you may have difficulty standing and "holding your balance" on one leg (no hands. If you're using your hands to balance, you're using the proprioception in...

    Replace missing rivets, to reassemble hi hat stand/cymbal stand legs

    I didn't stir any response re: removing leg assemblies from my hi hat stand without removing rivets from legs. How can I replace drilled-out rivets, if I decide to reinstall legs? Can I buy appropriate rivet blanks, and flare them myself? What rivets would be rugged enough to perform? Is there a...

    Breakdown Pearl Eliminator, to remove legs?

    I love the help everybody offers. I'd like to remove the 2 legs from my hi hat, so I can sneak it closer to my L bass. I'd rather not drill out the rivets. The top legs would have to telescope off the top. That looks probable. The bottom 2 would have to telescope off the bottom of the main tube...

    Can I reduce the heavy wash of a very heavy ride (holes, putty, chewing gum, I dunno)

    In 1980 I bought a Zildjian gong. 18"/2612g, lathed brass, with none of the different color motif you'd expect to see in the middle of a gong. Just brass. It had 2 small holes on the bent side, and a hole in the center. Why did I buy it? I don't know....it looked cool and I had a few extra...

    I'm a cyber dinosaur, so if I make a mistake, please let me know. This may be old news: I've had 2 LP cowbells I've hardly ever played, I've tried duct tape, hunks of foam, a wadded-up sock, no help with a "good sound". I saw the LP magnets, got thinking.... I'm onto a good fix: thin "sheet"...
