Re: The right cymbal case
I opted for the Ahead bag. The two big selling points for me were the plush dividers and the shoulder straps. One of my 18" cymbals is full of rivets, and I don't want those coming in direct contact with any of the other cymbals. It hasn't been a problem in my hard case, but once I get a china, I can see that being an issue without good dividers. I've read some great reviews on it, and I've seen their drum cases, and they're just awesome, so I'll give it a chance. If this bag is anything like their sticks, however, I'll be returning it immediately.
