No way to hear the way it may really sound. I wish he played it all around near the bell, tip on bell, different parts of the flat, but some men you just can't reach, so you end up with what we had the other day, which is the way he wants it,...well, he gits it. It sounds like sh*t !!
But evidently the disagreeing parties here were inadvertently talking past one other by failing to note that you were both talking about entirely different cymbals altogether. (In addition you should know that I agree with your personal assessment on that 22"). So I find myself agreeing with both sides here when proper consideration is given as to which cymbals each side was actually critiquing.

Therefore I am persuaded to conclude, as a relatively neutral observer analyzing this discussion, by thorough application of logic and deductive reasoning, that this disagreement apparently was not the result of any clash of personal opinions, but on the contrary, was in point of fact merely "a failure to communicate".

Know what I mean Vern?

I didn't even recognize that, went right over my head. I completely don't know who's dirt was in that hole.

Your a regular Sherlock Holmes.

Some of those reworked cymbals sounded much better than others. I could live with the 18", bit I would never pay anyone to rework a cymbal of mine that I wasn't happy with in hopes that in the end I would somehow get a silk purse from a sows's ear.

The 22" with the rivets that Oddball commented on actually reminds me a bit of a 22" Dream Bliss my son acquired and planned for student use. I didn't particularly care for the riveted 22" either, although I don't express my disapproval as strongly as Oddball does. It reminds me of Chinese made cymbals trying to emulate the Turkish sound with an gonglike wash overlaying the sticking.

But we must make special allowances for Oddball because he's just a cranky old F A R T.

But as for you, well you're just a regular old F A R T.
