Sounds fantastic! You can't buy that sound in anything produced today.

Phoenix rising from the ashes!

Really great metalwork here, ThomasL. Clean drilling and Dremeling ........ I'd keep a VERY close eye on those cracks surrounding the bell .......


But ........ bottom line is, it sounds like an old K should .........

Mike

How would you describe the sound? To me, over speakers it sounds like entire frequency bands have been chopped out of it's spectrum.
Very cool sound. Is it too sparse to use with a group?

Your description is not far off. It's very dry, but there is still some highs from the bell. I have used it one the left, for bass solos and quiet passages. I think the rivets made the edge crash (as much of a crash one has the balls to play on this thing) a bit more usable, but the influence on the ride sound was surprisingly small.

Thanks, Joe. I use a Canon EOS 70D DSLR camera with a Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro. The mic is really good, I also use it with an audio recorder to record rehearsals.
