Current article reads The difference in sound is due mostly to the nature of the hammering: hand hammering is done randomly (that is not in a regular pattern) and thus the cymbal has a darker sound-even if this "random" style is dictated and executed by a computer. Symmetrical hammereing which is almost always done by a machine gives the cymbal a brighter sound. So it is random hamering versus symmetrical hammering that accounts for the major discrepancies between the sounds of various cymbals. It was added here.
Ok perhaps the information regarding the randomness of the hammering may not be encyclopedic. But there aren't any published articles out there about hammering patterns and the sounds they create. Yes, a lot of information about cymbals is speculative, but if we were to wait for published sources for the information to be published here then we would have no article at all. Remember that cymbal making is a secretive industry. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 15:43, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
"Uses many different CHEESES"? What does that mean? I thought perhaps some cymbal-making obscure terminology, but there's no further reference to 'cheeses' in the article. Dvallere (talk) 00:37, 11 February 2008 (UTC)
The article states "This lathing step could increase the weight of the cymbal by two-thirds or more," I would assume that Lathing would decrease the weight of the cymbal not increase it. You are removing metal from the cymbal not adding. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 15:46, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
It would be nice if this was corrected to turning with on a lathe added if absolutely required.
