Just moved house and finding stuff and when I’m set up, speakers, cables etc. I’ll have a go. Thanks a bunch.

No problem. The Tim’s Tech Talk section will soon have a full lesson on 3 different ways you can send stuff in with full walkthroughs on how to do it all. So be on the lookout! Reply Steven says: May 24, 2019 at 4:57 am RE Cracked cymbals…they use the same technique when repairing cracks in railway bogies. The hole makes the energy that causes the crack dissipate on the inside of the hole. Reply Tim B. - SDS Staff Teacher says: May 24, 2019 at 12:15 pm Good to know! Yep – drilling a hole out at the end of the crack is the only thing I’ve heard of to prolong the life a cymbal that has already cracked.
