Default New cymbals, new setup, new post.

Got some cheeky new cymbals recently and havnt done a post in a while so i thought, "im not doing anything better" so here we are.
My tastes in music have changed a lot lately, its got quieter, more tastefull, so my cymbal selection has altered in an appropriiate manner.
Im playing a lot of what i would call Pop music these days, so i need versatile cymbals and good quality ones at that. However, being the sterotypical student, i have little money, and what i do have, i spend on alcohol.
So scouring the internets happened and luckily i found the cymbals i wanted at a reasonable price :D
So the new additions to the family are:

13" K Mastersound hats - incredibly high hats, possibly the most versatile hats ever made. Dark, with a nice was and preposterous amounts of "chick". The 13" size makes the pedaling of these hats very light and the chick with the foot keeps everyone in time, cause its loud enough to be heard.
When open these hats are beastly. Causing me deafness, depending on how hard they are hit. And they record beautifully.

20" Sabian Artisan Medium Ride - Lots of warm wash with nice stick definition, quite dark overall with a monsterous crash.
The omly thing that annoys me about this ride is the bell. Its by no means small, but you have to hit it with military prescision to gett the full potential. This is really annoying when recording, cause its essential to keep consistency when hitting that bell.

22" K Custom Left Side Ride - I removed the rivets from this ride to make it more versatile, puttin gthem in again if needed. I must say this is a brilliant cymbal, and might be the dryest ride ever, and darkest. Its perfect.
And when i got it the first thing my mum said was, "Jame, look at the mess thats in! Are you going to clean it??" I was disgusted, but in a good way!

SETUP: 14" x 6.5" gretsch snare and 26" x 18" Gretsch bass drum. Thats it!

Pics and stuff.

Best letter in the alphabet?

Very neat looking cymbals you got there!
Though I got a bit sceptical about the Left Side Ride...but that`s a pure personal preference of course. Oh, and my mom asked me exactly the same when I got my K Custom Dry Light Ride. ;-)
So, a bunch of nice additions...Im especially excited about that Sabian pie. The Artisan Light Rides seem to have a very airy, dark and woody sound. Just heard them in a few videos till now...

Its the one im least excited about to be honest Karl, it sure is dark, but the stick sound off it has got too much of a "ping" for my liking, but it records very well and is quite versatile, wich is good if im having one of those cant-be-bothered-taking-loads-of-cymbals to a gig.

Could it be the weight which makes it so pingy? Actually those Artisan Light Rides are heavily hammered with a hint of Agop I have to say.
Maybe it`s simply a heavy model you`ve got there?

But you`re gonna keep it, don`t you? Of course it should be able to speak your voice...

Although I think you got your left and right mixed up, sweet new cymbals. I personally think that Sabian made the Artisan rides too heavy for their purpose, but they still sound pretty nice.
