Thanks man! I especially avree with you on thin rides. I had a very thin dream bliss 20" ride that had tons of wash and was easily crashable. It was weied at first, but I really got to like it! I now have a dream 24" ride that can sound like a runaway freight train, but man its fun to play! Not quitw enough ping for the band, which is too bad!

On the flip side, I have a Paiste 2002 22" Power Ride that heavy and super pingy! So much that I no longer like playing it.
