Keep a diary of your latest build here.
I was just thinking this a few minutes back when I saw some old cymbals for sale in an antique barn.
Each time I am at the salvage yard I look for things to turn into wheel covers. I have a galvanized trashcan here at home and the lid fits a 26" perfect. The only problem is that the trashcan came with the house when I bought it 7 yrs ago and I can't find another can or lid like this one anywhere. Not in hardware stores or anywhere else
It's easier to shine like chrome when you're surrounded by rust
Not a drummer, but I was in the band (not *a* band, the band) and yes they are pricey and yes, they crack, but if found cheap, it would be worth a shot. The one's I saw at the antique place woud probably have been cheap, but would only have fit maybe a 20" wheel at largest, probably not even that size.
The set they use to march with were pretty large and I saw them dropped before and once during a big cymbal crash the girl inverted one, but the band directed popped it back. They would look sweet, especially polished.
No doubt about that!
I'd really like to see someone trying..
...but I think I won't have the guts to cut one to the right size if I'd get my hands on four identical cymbals at a thriftstore or fleamarket...
I wouldn't try with shears or a saw, but an angle grinder with a cutting wheel or a dremel would do the trick.
Wow great minds think alike, the only difference between us may be the fact that Im a procrastinator and your a doer. Im glad you did it and it turned out well, now I know exactly what Im getting myself into. Nice work!.
