Re: 1984 - Photoshoot (2)


You know what, after searching everywhere, including Home Depot, I came up [sign in to see URL] tubing, like what we've been talking about above. However, it is not strong enough in my opinion.

Instead, I found Nylon spacers at Home Depot, and carved them down on a grinder to get the right OD and length.

Nylon is extremely hard, and I can use a fender washer over the top and tighten the assembly without compressing the cymbal in the felts.

The problem I find is that with really hard materials you can "key" the cymbal over a period of time.

This nylon does wear out, and the cymbals don't appear to have keyholed. But maybe the surgical tubing is a better idea. Gotta give it a whirl.
