Thread Name: Lagerphone build recommendations please!
Subject: RE: Lagerphone build recommendations please!
I started collecting bottle tops 15 years ago and quickly found that modern ones have a layer of rubbery plastic to effect the seal. This deadens that sound. I tried burning off the plastic but it also alters the sound, perhaps I should have quenched them while still hot to re-temper them, but it all got a bit complicated and I gave up.

Scraping off the plastic was a long and fruitless task too.

Still the plastic deadening won't annoy bodhran jokerists (oh how my sides are hurting - please one joke at a time)

So what is the difference between a drummer and a gynecologist?

1) None - they both know the answer to this joke.
2) Bodhran players are all laughing, but not the erstwhile jokerists.
3) PM me if you need a good laugh.
