Man, I was playing and noticed little black marks on my heads. I looked at the tips of my sticks and they too are black. It's the raw bells! They come dirty as heck from the factory. Never had this happen before. Now I'm gonna have to clean that grime from the heads and clean the bells. Anyone have a good suggestion for getting that stuff off of the bells?

Try Windex and paper towel before throwing accusations... Ha!

Definitely the bells! Ran my finger on them and it's like soot. I'll try the Windex tomorrow. By the way, sorry man, the 20" Murathan sold, LOl!

Here is a quick audio file of the HHX's I made with my phone. Audio is not great so definitely different sound than in person. And it was hard to strike them while holding the phone. First recording I've ever done! :)
More recordings to come as time permits as I get all my real recording gear up and running!
