J's Solar Hand hammering project!

before clips.

after first round of hammering on the top hat clip.
http://www.supload.com/listen?s=EiRGIc

These were recorded with the mic above the hats, so that's what you can't hear the kit that well...

the hammering made the top hat extremely dry and dark! I'm going to do some light hammering on the bottom pretty soon.

now the pictures. haha I went crazy with the hammering.

before...




after! Twisted Evil




but I really like these hats right now. extremly woody stick. I think I'm ready to start selling my creations. :¡This Cheese is Burning Me!!:

haha yeah the hammering was very... chaotic. the bottom one I just did looks much better, like I kind of knew what I was doing ¡This Cheese is Burning Me!.

I also have a new sound clip. I'll upload it later, but here's the bottom cymbal after hammering it..

Looks and sounds great Jeffrey. The after soundfile sounds way better than before (obviously). I've never hammered hi hats, but if my Meinl Ride is anything to go by, after a few days to a week, their sound will start to change. They'll probably get a bit more livelier, more wash/slosh. But that's just from my experience with my ride, your hats may be totally different.

Oh, I just remembered I have some old Pearl hats here, as well as my old B8's. I'll probably leave the B8's, but I might have a go at the Pearls, as they're just sitting in the spare room collecting dust.

ha thanks.
cool I'm hoping the top hat will open up a tinkle bit. I probably hammered too much in one setting or something.

yeah man definately have a go with those pearl hats.

Hah, that could be cool. Just make sure they retain their shape... for the most part. If I were you, I would just go nuts with the hammering, meaning don't leave any surface space unhammered. Haha.

yeah but who cares if they don't retain their shape ¡This Cheese is Burning Me!?
haha I thought about that. I'm pretty sure it would be completely dead and lifeless.
hammering is just too much fun, I don't want to be done yet..

It looks like the hammering you've done so far is relatively small, pin point hammering. You should try using a differnet hammer to get some larger marks.
It might be cool
