I'll wait until this time next month, and if no-one else is interested in this fine pair by then, I'll have' em sent to France to add to my modest Paiste collection. You have been fairly warned; those who snooze will loose out (I think there's maybe a punchier way of putting that, but I can't think of it right now...). The clock starts ticking...

Now..! :D

Almost a week has gone by, the clock is still ticking. If these are not wanted in the UK, I shall make good use of them. You still have an opportunity to snaffle these, but not for much longer. Mhahaha..! :biggrin:

I've just informed my drummer.. Waiting a reply..

Make sure that he knows that these are not the modern, brash, brass '101's, but the original nickel-silver ones, from the very late '70s. Not the same musicality at all (although I suppose there may be some drummers deaf enough to not be troubled by raw brass... :ph34r: ). Entry-level, but decent-sounding (otherwise why would I want 'em at all..? :rolleyes: ).
Just sayin'.

Yes. I bought a 12" very thin raw brass splash cymbal the other day, for 9 pounds, from China, from eBay, for fun. Wow. What a sound. A bad, bad sound.

Except... it serves a nice purpose as a low-volume bottom hi-hat (with a Zildjian Avedis Custom A splash as the top), to be played using home-made thunder rods with my cajón, and I may even get another one to be used as a nasty hand-smacked trashsplash thing.

Indeed, as a novelty effect, used (very...) sparingly, there is much to be said for a bit of 'trash' in a kit; some 'musical' genres even rely on it..! To me, the hi-hat is the king-pin of a kit; any lack of quality in that instrument will become sharply apparent, as (in the styles I tend to play...) it's insidiously omnipresent. One can adjust a snare by tuning, dampening (the old 'fat wallet' trick...) or changing heads; toms, too, can be treated for different sounds. Cymbals are very difficult to (successfully...) modify; they're good or not. Good hi-hats can make a kit. A poor pair will ruin any kit.
(... but what would I know..? I'm only a drummer... :blush: )
