    as for the dumbest pdf thread ever , I still believe that the ''''are u cut '' thread is untouchable.

    Peeing on a cymb to get a vintage finish is a funny idea ,probably emanating from those nights after rehearsal when everyone is drunk lol.

    I wonder how it would end if several participants were invited to pee on the victim ''; The cymb would probably turn into a patchwork of multiple colors since each PH is different lol.

    I did something similar to a brass sensitone snare drum shell. At first I tried horse urine (don't ask). Later, I simply soaked it in pure ammonia. Worked like a charm. It's now my favorite snare, but this look isn't for everyone.
    Ok I straight up just came here to laugh at the comments, but that snare looks amazing. Nice work

    So, to add to the experiment, I buried my Hi-hat in the garden for a few months. I was curious to see how the urine would effect it if subjected to the increased humidity of wet soil and other factors. This is coming from the Big experiment that Sabian did with their '1 of 100' set of cymbals, in which they buried 100 cymbals in Canada for 8 months.http://www.sabian.com/en/article/sab...l-aged-cymbals
    Here is a video of the unearthing. https://youtu.be/7lfSaC6UrgY
    And a video of a sound comparison. https://youtu.be/AS3izRsM7eY
    I have heard of jazz players doing this and thought I'd give it a whirl. Unfortunately I didn't take a sound sample before any of this.

    I didn't notice all that much change until I went to clean the dirt off with some water and baking soda and I could feel little bumps in the surface. I am sure that this, like ridges from lathing, will cause some slight change in tone, but as this is a Hi-hat, I doubt it will be noticeable.

    I played a gulf coast gig one time and forgot to cover my kit over night. The next morning, the salty air had put a nasty coating on all my cymbals.

    Nothing artistic, but it certainly started the process.

    Buy a bag of pool salt at Sam's for 5 bucks and bury them in that. I'm sure it would work better than dirt.

    Is there still lacquer on those cymbals? If there is I bet that is helping it from gaining a patina and the spots that have started are likely places where the coating has been worn thin or even worn away.

    It looks odd having an almost aged patina but fresh logos.

    Thanks, that's kinda what I was hoping would happen. Not wanting a full patina, just a bit of aging. This is my bottom hat, the top I am still leaving in all it's luster. Once I get it cleaned off, I will post a few pics.

    Do you have a dog or a fire hydrant near bye. Prop one up and see if dog urine has a diff. effect .
    It will eat the finish off of car rims!
