Default Re: Who here mixes different Cymbal makes?

Primarily a zildjian player but I have a few sabians as well. I am more inclined to mix A's with AA's and K's with HH's than I am A's and K's for example.

Here!
I have to admit I love every brand for something. Sabian and meinl in particular. I search the sound, not the brand. I don't want to ever get endorsed on that so... that solves my problem
I'm right now using Sabian and one Istanbul crash (actually it's a 20 ride but....)

Zildjians on my left-Custom A Mastersound hats and an old school 16"Thin Crash, and Paistes on the right-Formula 602 Medium Ride and an 18" 2002 thin crash. We are not being endorsed, so who cares?

I've got Sabian AA, AAX, & HHX with Zildjian A's & A Customs.

They get along fine.

I have no problem mixing cymbal brands. I used to be anal about having all the same brand years ago but I got over it. I routinely mix Zildjian with Sabian and occasionally Paiste. I don't have much Paiste left though, only a set of Sound Formula hats and a 2002 china.

The only reason I can think of is if someone is a sponsored pro. I offered to loan my regular drum teacher a vintage Zildjian ride he lusts after but he declined saying he couldn't be photographed or video recorded using anything but his sponsor's stuff (currently Paiste or Meinl I think).

For me, whatever sounds good (and is affordable) would be my response. Currently mixing three vintage Zildjians and two early Sabians. Still looking for that perfect Paiste to stir into the pot.

My crashes are 18" K medium thin + 18" K Thin, 22" HHX Legacy heavy ride, and the hats are Artisan top over K bottom. Works a treat. I had a beautiful Istanbul 19" Traditional Dark, but it wasn't far enough away from crashing my ride that it was worth the extra weight in the cymbal bag and spare stand.

A lot of it's in the mind. When the alloys and surface texture look too different the eyes can trick the ears. When I was playing more rock I LOVED the 22" K Custom ride but it bore no relation to the other K Custom line. It sounded great with HHXplosion crashes.

I'm a blending kind of player where it all sounds like one big cymbal, but I remember JoJo talking about how he didn't want a blend treating each cymbal as it's own instrument. I love that approach - I wish I played music that needed it.

My OCD would like me to stick to one brand, but then I hear a cymbal that compliments what I have and I give in to the chaos.
