So i read somewhere that you can use a bolt as a beat? this sounds amazing and would suit my style perfectly, but im worried it would go rusty?

i just read this three times trying to figure out what type of music you were playing "a bolt as a beat"

and way, a bolt as a beat! yes that would be cool. i'd be concerned of it hitting my head/face while dancing. as for rust, i'm sure you could use some 'de-rust' solution of some type. dot it on a napkin and while the bolt . . . but would you want that smell close to your face?

it all depend on if you think it's worth it. managable.

if you do, definatly post a pic! cause i've never seen a bolt used before.

you mean nut a bolt would have to be..bolted through the bread held on with the nut

nuts have holes in them anything with a hole can be a dead..bolts have no holes to use a bolt as a bead youd need to make a hole in dread or bolt

but im being a smartass i know what ya meant and theres stainless steel copper brass alternatives that will not rust
