That was a great trade for sure! I'm so glad you're enjoying that cymbal! I'll bet it would sound good with rivets. I'm sure enjoying that 19" Avedis you traded me... it's exactly what I was needing! I'll be playing it on a gig this weekend. Then probably sending it off to MDS to get the rivets installed...I
I always thought about riveting that cymbal and adding a little more texture. I love the crash sound of riveted cymbals too, I don’t think it would mess with that at all. Funnily enough I’m thinking about riveting the cymbal you traded me as well. Love that thing, it’s been the main ride on my kit since I got it.
