okay, so I have a question. I ordered a package from yynation and they forgot to send it. It was only some string and some k-pads, but it took like 2 weeks for them to even respond to my email about the situation. When they finally did, they offered me a discount on my next purchase and a few coupons for a couple of dollars each. I asked them if they could just send me a ceramic kk instead of the other package, because with the coupons it added up to about the same.
Well, I finally got the kk in the mail, and when I first put it on it played smooth as glass, but as soon as I dropped a drop or two of thin lube in it, it started to sound and play just like any other bearing. I decided to pop the shields off of it because I was curious, and I noticed that nothing internal (that I could see) was ceramic. My question is: do the ceramic kk’s have ceramic balls underneath the metal “wheel” looking things inside the bearing? on most bearings when you pop the shields off, from one side you can see the balls and from the other side you see the internal shield that holds the balls or whatever. The KK looks the same from both sides. Does it have the ceramic balls underneath the metal? I am thinking that it’s a regular kk that came dry, thats why it played so smooth and quiet when I got it in the mail. If anyone has a ceramic kk and could fill me in on what’s up, then please don’t hesitate.
