Oh come now, Andy, a lot of gals would have done the same if a hunky president came on to them :)

I think that happens a fair bit. In the 80s it was Paiste 2002 all the way. When I started up again I bought another 2002 to relive old glories and it was too bright for me ... now I have a Zil A and a Sabian HH. In the old days I wanted them to sound slick, now I prefer a touch of trashiness (yeah yeah, I can see the link).


I started out playing gigs with oddball kits - added rotos with a synth trigger, a throwaway cymbal that sounded like a China when turned upsidedown and clamped down tight, a shallow snare. Then I went conventional for about a decade. The Rhythm Traveller kick & toms I now use says I'm even cheaper than Jay is ... and I'm over lugging.
