Re: cjl71178's ludwig classic birches
i love my 13" k/z's. i actually did play the 14" ones because I went to an Anton Fig drum clinic years ago and loved the sound of his hi hats. i went with 13" ones because 14" seem too big for me. you wouldn't be disappointed with them though.
no, i've had that throne for a long time...very comfortable and big enough for my rear! HA.
