I'm a believer.
I'll never understand why people want their drums to have that much sustain. I get that it's all preference and such, but from my experience all sustain does is muddy up the sound or get lost in the mix. Anyone care to enlighten me? (No disrespect meant towards you Alparrott)
Back on topic though, I ordered one from my local long and macquade with the intention to put it on my bass drum and mount my ride cymbal on it! I guess we'll see if it increases cymbal sustain. ;)
