Looks great, but don't you mean "Bling, Bling", or maybe I'm just not hip :D

I bought a second hand gold plated Balancer 150 and was unhappy with the finish, so decided to remove it.

The pictures are from some time ago, and don't really show the metal very well, but if anybody would like me to, I'll happily take some more photographs for you.

@ Jacka, that looks copper to me. Doesn't look like brass at all... unless it doesn't have the normal amount of zinc it should have.

I'm fairly sure it is copper, but I'm no expert.

Plating is often done in several stages, and copper is usually the penultimate stage as so many metals bond to it in a strong and even manner, it's likely (but not certain) that if you continued abrading then you'd get passed a copper layer and onto brass.

asura is correct there is a small copper layer before the final layer is added but the main body is brass.

Anyone else own one of these? Was interested in getting a few. Are the finishes still scratched looking? Or was that just 1 bad one.. Thanks
