Is there a point.Really who in a live audience is going to know any difference.
Heard of people doing this to get a dry sounding, aged cymbal. Why not just buy a dry cymbal, or something 20 years old?
Any studio can adjust to give that effect when recording.

Other way is don't polish the tits off em. Let your cymbals age naturally, a build up of crap in the grooves will do it, then never clean them with anything harsh, just lightly with warm soap and water to remove surface loose finger splodge and dust. Nicotene from smoky gigs on them not as bad these days. tongue Getting that off definitely brightens cymbals up.
Doesn't take long to age them that way, only around 20 years

think they're trying to tap into the 'old K' market some guys are shelling out $1500+ for a 20" and $2500 for a 22" because they are considered to have something modern cymbals (even the turkish ones) just don't have. the choice or sabian artisan series cymbals just seems to confirm this. I have a few old K's and have sold many more, some are great cymbals but many modern cymbals also sound great just different. I think the main result will be to mellow the overtones and give them a more played in sound. Will we see drummers around the world burying their cymbals? i don't think so, my advice if you want that sound, gets some old 50's/60's zildjian A's they don't cost a bunch and have that sound.
