Now I want a 20" Sabian HH chinese and three crashes more maybe two 18" and a 20" or 19" and a extra Hi Hat. I really want to get rid of the Zildjian crash.
I wanted Four crashes, four splashes, two chinas and a pedal for clave. That's a lot! But I don't want them anymore.
So my kit will have four Crashes, one China, Hi Hat, Ride and an X Hat. For me that's not too much and I really need them because my band requires a lot of different sounds and I 've got tired of the same sounds.
