Re: Virgil Donati
I have only viewed brief video clips of Virgil Donati playing, and from what I have seen, I'm very impressed with the guy. I know this much:I bought a 16" Sabian Saturation crash that he helped design, and it's one of the favorite cymbals in my setup. I play it alongside of my AA medium/thin crash, and it has so much defintion in it; it's hard to describe. Great for soft buildup with mallets, and for hard rock, it's second to none. I think that Donati is a very valuable and worthy input for anyone who likes more complex "rock" based music, and especially for drummers...
