Hey Chuck, it's goin' good; thanks for asking. Tommy made the switch to Zildjian due to various factors involved that I can't get into too deeply. The main reason was the tour support Zildjian provided. Those guys are the nicest bunch in the industry as far as I'm concerned. They reintroduced platinum for T(as well as Travis Barker), plus the sonic qualities of the cymbals were more of what Tommy was looking for when he started rehearsing for the Motley tour. I'll post a segment in depth on his cymbal choices in the near future. Thanks for your interest.
