Default Re: Thoughts on this combination of cymbals? (video)

Definitely enjoying the K ride the most, that bell is perfect!
Thanks! That Dream ride would easily get away from me without the tape. I know what you're saying about not liking putting tape on to cut down the wash, but it definitely helps this cymbal (in my opinion, of course.) I'm sure I'll continue to experiment with and without tape, though.

I'm not experienced with Sabian cymbals at all, so I can't really answer that. But I wasn't laying into that K crash at all and you're right, it takes a little harder hit than what I was doing to open it up! In a rock context, I'll hit harder and it opens up with a "typical" strike. I really love that crash!

Thanks man!
