Default Re: Al Foster

Thanks Jazzgreg for your illuminating post. I suspected projection at that angle was modified the way you say but I was far from imagining the impact on feel, stick attack, and comfort. The reason why I stopped using the Al Foster cymbal setting is all what I read about how such a so-called bad vertical position of the cymbal was likely to impair its resonance and other things. I guess I'll try again the Foster way. Thanks again.
