Default Happppppy birthdayyy to meeee (New toy and changed setup)

Well hello everyone, my birthday was today (17, finally R-rated movies!! hahah) and I recieved a Meinl Classics 17" Medium Crash.. I looooveeee it, it sounds greattt, much different from the ZBT's though, which is fine 'cause I'm replacing them anyways (18" Classics Crash and 13" Soundwave Classic Hats are on their way... I'll get a new ride as soon as I get some more birthday cash) But yeah, dig some pictures, if you look closely at the second picture you can see an example of why you should be super careful with laptops...

And I've also changed my setup a bit, I've moved my second crash to the other side of the ride and I've condensed to a 4-piece.. I find it amazingly comfortable and my fills are getting more creative, etc..

Specs:
Pearl Rhythm Traveler
13" Snare (Aquarian Focus X)
10" Tom (not pictured, Aquarian Performance II)
12" Tom (now rack tom, Aquarian Performance II)
14" Tom (Aquarian Performance II)
20" Bass (Evans Emad)

Bronze:
17" Meinl Classics Crash (Wooot!!)
14" Zildjian ZBT Hi-hats (soon to be replaced with Meinl Classics 13" Soundwave)
18" Zildjian ZBT crash (soon to be replaced with Meinl Classics 18" Medium Crash)
20" Zildjian ZBT ride (soon to be replaced with something?)
22" Wuhan Wind Gong (Never to be replaced!!)
12" Wuhan China (pretty happy with this one too)

LP Black Beauty
Nameless Cowbell

And of course a "Drum machines have no soul" sticker haha

Haha thanks man, it's been a good one..
And if it counts for anything, Meinl's sound check thing on their website sounds exactly like the real cymbals, maybe that could help your thinking? Haha

Yeah, the story behind the laptop is, I was moving it to do homework on my desk, and the AC cord got stuck in my pencil caddy and I was balancing the laptop in one hand and trying to unplug it in the other and down it tumbled, hit the corner of my keyboards, hit the desk chair then landed on the floor.. Haha lots of cuss words were being yelled that day.. So yeah, now its plugged into a computer monitor, which makes it not so transportable or compact anymore.. Haha

A pretty nice addition to the kit. How would you describe the Classics' sound? I know that they're B8 bronze, could they be compared to, say, Paiste 2oo2? Anyway it looks great and I'm sure sounds awesome.

P.S. That sticker is sweet.

I've never heard 2oo2's in person, other than on Zeppelin records, but it's really not that far apart from what I just heard, (I just played some Zeppelin on Itunes then hit my crash.. haha)

Haha I love the sticker, my sister gave it to me.. It's a very true statement too...

I've been considering those Meinl's. They seem to look better than in the pictures on their website.
You're setup looks real comfy. More importantly, with those heads, you're probably getting that sound I'm into. Keep rocking it.

The crash is amazing, when I get the hats and the 18" I'll put a report up of them...

It really is comfy, I love the two floor toms set up I had forever, but this is starting to become more and more comfortable to me... Not to mention its one less tom to transport..
And the heads are great.. I should have some recordings for you guys soon, I promise!

I scaled down to a four piece last year and I've stuck with it. It kind of stressed some more creativity out of me.
Can't wait for those recordings.

Hey I just realized... is there supposed to be a connection between 17th birthday and 17" crash? And does this mean that you'll get a larger cymbal every year? :P

Haha I didn't even realize that... Nah I got the 17" because my ZBT 16" was really wimpy, and I wanted a larger cymbal without having 2 18" crashes... If that makes any sense....

Nice, good to hear your playing. I'm probably going to try some Classics somewhere now.

Excellent, I recommend them, wait till I get the other ones, and I'll get some more recordings with all of them..
P.S. When you ride the 17" it sounds sooo beautiful... haha
