i watched a goldfinger live show a fair while back and seen them light cymbals on fire and have wanted our drummer to do it ever since, does anyone have any idea on how we could achieve the effect of lighting the whole thing on fire for a decent amount of time? say 30+ secs?

lighter fluid?

How many kids with ADD does it take to change a lightbulb?

Maybe that flammable gel that you get with little pot fires or something.

I wouldn't recommend it at all though. It CAN"T be good for your cymbals, the drummer from Goldfinger can most likely afford to replace cymbals after every tour.

Lighter fluid for zippo type lighters poured over the cymbol. So some expermentes first and be careful when lighting it.

john bonham does that in The Song Remains The Same DVD except he sets a gong on fire as well as the mallet and the thing holding the gong

awesome!


although, unless your drummer is really rich, i don't think it's a good idea to do it
the cymbals might melt or something and then sound like a piece of scrap metal

Watch the Pantera: 3 home video. They show you how they do it for the Video for 5 Minutes Alone. It looks like some guy just squirts lighter fluid on it and runs out of the shot.
#11
this was done in a pantera video as well.....go rent or buy pantera 3 (awesome movie anyway) but they show the process of lighting the cymbal on fire........but yeah, theres always a risk of a) lighting the drumstick on fire, drummer flipping out and tossing it, then burning the building down or b) lighter fluid running somewhere else and burning the building down.....these lead to c) dont try this at home

whats it called? and is it cheap lol

IF you burn a flammable fluid on teh cymbal then in theory it shouldn't damage it...

its just buring off the fuel. The temperature would never be high enough to melt the cymbal...But yea, try it on the drummers old cymbals he doesnt want anymore...just incase!

In marching band (**** you) they would put aluminum foil on the cymbals and then put the gel **** on there. Worked pretty well, no damage to the cymbals. Though that's a rather lengthy process to do during a set...

Put it in a girls bathroom in a school.

(That would make sense if you read the thread on the girl's school being on fire, I suppose.)
