Hand Hammering Brass Ride Cymbal.

 I have stock ride cymball, of course it's brass, :)

 It has bright sound with much overtones and long sustain.

 Because I use my Meinl MCS 18" crash-ride as my main ride, I decide to hand hammer this ride.

 First try, litle hammering. The result has subtle difference.

 Second, more hammering, and yes..., it has more darker sound.

 Third, it's bit too much, the result is super-dark sound ride with short sustain.

 In other word, it's become trashy china cymbal.

 Searching for new/used bronze ride, :)
