Having gone at it a little at a time over a long time, months later our conclusion was that some of those pieces of sheet metal just sound better than others, although careful tensioning can make them brighter. Also, the "magic" one was riddled with tiny rust spots. We left them.
That’s really amazing! I think there is prob less than 8 plates in the whole of Australia. I would call my plate pretty damn magic (in a sample of 1) but with a few resonances in mid range. It’s bright in a very present alive clear kind of way. Are u saying that the tuning doesn’t do much other than impact brightness?
