Your selflessness, your dedication and your belief in the cause is inspiring.

Personally, I find a little chatter interesting, and even appealing. I usually don't fight it, or try to fix it if it occurs. Sometimes, I even create it on purpose.Matt


Fido is confused. He can't really tell if he's looking at lathe chatter or hammering.

Can anyone help him out?

It occurs to me from your various comments in this and other threads that perhaps the sound of old K's that appeals to many of us is just not your cup of tea, and may not be appropriate choices for the type of music you play. They are not really well suited for hard rock, and the thin ones might possibly not survive a rock gig.
You would be kinda right. I do prefer the heaviest I can find. I know I would crack thin any cymbals in time. Keyhole them too. I'm used to them.

I'm actually not big on cymbal playing. Recently in the last two or so years I started the jazz thing so I only have one top hat that's any kinda thin.
