    That diagram of the china has some of the worse striking advice I've ever seen. Are they for real? In the inverted pic, #4 is ridiculous...same with #3 in the bottom pic. You're only asking for big trouble striking the edge head on like that. Not to mention you'll pretty much shred your sticks to sawdust in no time at all. Example #3 in the top pic is just plain silly. The bell is like 2" across with the wingnut and felts in the middle. How the hell can you get a stick in there to actually play anything? Sheesh, where did you find that pic?

    EDIT: I just found the thread that was first posted in. That came from PAISTE? Oh man.

    The 1969 Paiste catalogue, to be exact. I own it, and that's directly from there.

    I'm pretty sure it's intended to be exagerated, but somebody could get into big trouble if they took it literally. It's actually pretty acurate other than that.
