RE: Very Disappointed

Thanks everyone for the suggestions and ideas. The WBT's look really nice, but a little too hard on the wallet right now. I'll keep them in mind though. I have some of the Nakamichi's (or maybe NakaKnockoff's would be more appropriate). I picked up 12 of them on Ebay a while back for $9, and they're worth exactly what I paid for them -- not much. Yup, there's some copper in there, but it's only one of a variety of unknown metals in the mix (I cut one apart to see). Directly gold-plated copper they're not. There are so many of these being sold all over from a bunch of different sources (and all dirt cheap) that there has to be some counterfeiter making these things by the truckload, and that's probably exactly what I got. Impossible to tell what's good and what's bad though.

I'll stop by Home Depot tomorrow and pick up some dowels to give Duster's idea a try. Great idea, and it may allow me to salvage what I already have. I'll post back with results.
