  • We simply cannot draw out any sound from any cymbal. Each finished cymbal has been worked into a pre-destined shape and tension, so there are limitations to what a Mod can accomplish.
  • We do not modify cheaper, entry level cymbals. B20 and some higher-quality B8 alloys are what we accept. If you are unsure about what your cymbal is made of, or if it qualifies for a Mod, send us a pic or tell us the brand/model and we’ll let you know!
  • We do not remove more than around 1000 grams of weight, due to issues that may be pre-existing in the cymbal alloy
  • The maximum weight cymbal we will modify is around 3200-3500 grams (around 7lbs.)
  • Many factors determine a cymbal’s durability, but with modified, and especially thinner cymbals, the chance of cracking is increased when care is not taken in how the drummer plays the cymbal(s). Therefore there are no returns and no warranties. If you’re modified cymbal cracks, reach out to us about a repair.
