    Han- formed bell? The bell/bridge transition looks wonderfully gradual.

    Almost all my bells are hand formed / hand hammered. So far, only the orchestral cymbals I do, the B20 ones, have machine pressed cups.

    Here's another badly lit photo - showing the cup and bridge:




    I've done bigger cups, and also sharper bridges. But you can't get as sharp as you can with some pressed cups. Not in B20 anyhow.

    A bridge as smooth as a baby's bottom.

    And here it is finished - a bit of naughty patina and some further work on the lathe, plus a wee bit of tickling with the angle-grinder:

    Why do you have to be so artistic with your cymbals? Can't you get a machine to make them for you?

    That thing looks as if it's alive. Does patina change during the first days or will it stay like that?

    +1 on the soundfiles.
