You've got a great imagination! Looks like you've given this some thought. There might be a job in lovely downtown Istanbul for a guy like you!I'd love 13" or 14" inch hihats that have the depth and crunch as well as the soft gush feeling of 16" or 17" hats. I once had a pair of New Stamp 13s I never should've sold that really did have this. Of the hundreds of cymbals I've had, they're among those I miss the most.
I've wondered what totally bizarro things could be made thinking of cymbals more like sculpture, with multiple layers and dimensions. Imagine 2 or more cymbals, connected to each other by the bell like, a Pagoda. Like a stack except much more resonant? What would playing the bell tube between each other sound like? They could be made at differing weights so that you can better isolate their sounds while playing the other.
Has anyone made cymbals with multiple bells?
Cymbals with multiple flanges in them?
Or cymbals with spring reverb, either suspended from the bottom surface, built like a bell but with a hollow cavity between the top and bottom surface, and then filled with a varying amount of springs or _____?
