Hand Hammered B8 pro hat? WTF!


Alright, so I'm to dang poor to buy myself some sound edge or xcellerator hats. So I modified my current B8 Pro medium bottom hat into a "sound edge" style. This hat is mated to a cast N12 alloy top hat. It's B8 pro bronze on the bottom and nickel silver on top. These have always sounded gret to me, but I needed a little more chik, and cut and wouldn't you know it, that's what I got lol.
The vid is not great but it sounds ok, if ya watch close you can hear and see me miss the beat lol and make the "m*ther f*cker" face, I pick it back up though.
Give me some feed back, if you want!
