Haven't yet, only time I've been in my space since your suggestion is when I've been with a band, by default I pull out the A Medium. Thanks for the reminder!

Bring it on! I've become a fan of the randomness at which cymbals fall apart, I'd love to see how other people chew through their gear.

Not pictured is an old 18" Zildjian that I believe was part of a set of concert crashes, it was quite heavy and not spared from the wrath of recklessness that I put it through. I agree these cymbals were on the thin side for the type of music I was playing (especially the AAX Studios), I am however not convinced a heavier cymbal would last any longer than a thin when subject to the abuse these guys went through.

The A Customs were the last to be broken and replaced with Projections, which are holding up just fine since toning down on the amount of crash-riding I had been doing with the louder bands I'm no longer with. I do appreciate the feedback, though.

Humorously, since leaving the louder bands, I've been contemplating switching out the Projections for something thinner, I do prefers me the sound of lighter cymbals...
