Default Re: ...for the jazz cats ...

Just added some new cymbals....a rare opportunity (for me anyways) to play trio gigs with
a couple of world class jazz pianists came my way and I wanted to get closer to "the sound"
I'll never get to..... Came home with 2 22" Sabian Artisan Custom Shop rides (one higher,
one lower pitched...higher I added rivets) to change things up from what I was using. I usually prefer 20" rides but fell in love with the sound of these. First gig went well and I'm
asked back for more...the other one is a ways off but the pianist is on 70 CD's and plays
the world over....it might be just the one gig but I can practice and hope! Anyways, for me
these are thrills of a lifetime and the reason I practice and play.
