Man.. spending 2k on cymbals, I wish I was in your shoes right now haha.
Haha, yeah it's pretty exciting seeing all these different drum kits/cymbals etc.
I guess the zildjian A Custom 20''Ping Ride doesn't crash well I heard, its really only a one sounding ride....any good alternatives that you would consider for metal?
