I’ve had my Dark Magic for just a few weeks now. So far things have been great. But the sound is changing. Maybe it’s just the sound of being even further broken in but I’m not so sure.
It will be really smooth at times and then at others it’s almost like there’s a slight grind. It would be sort of like what you might expect if there were the tiniest bit of sand in it. It’s not real loud. It’s more subtle. But it’s there.
So I thought maybe it needed a cleaning. I did that, put it back together and nothing has changed.
I hadn’t really thought too much about it but a while ago I was using it and the bearing momentarily seemed like it locked up. It freed back up and spins fine now, so maybe it didn’t actually lock. It didn’t shoot back up to my hand so maybe it didn’t. But it looked to me like bearing wasn’t moving, it was just spinning inside the string.
Or maybe not. I can’t really say for sure.
Any thoughts on this?
