Default My Omni arrived!

So this bad boy finally came in last week. Got to use it straight up this weekend for a recording session. I have to say it's one of most easily crashable cymbals I've played, this thing opens up at the drop of a hat. While the raw, hammered centre portion does offer some defined, dark sticking and the bell is pretty big, I feel this cymbal could do with a bit more body overall. But with saying that, this cymbal still serves its purpose of being a washy, crashable ride.

Now without further ado, here are some snaps...

Looks cool. You got the right size I think. The smaller did not sound very good to me. Have fun with it!

Was just playing around with one of these on Saturday at the Tacoma GC. You know, I'm not a crash-ride kinda guy at all, but I could totally get into these cymbals for certain things... good crash, good ride. It was kind of weird.

Love those cymbals. I could use 'em both in various styles of music.

Awesome! So jealous.
I'm wondering if you'd be able to give me your opinion on something. I am considering the 22" Omni, but chances are I won't be able to try before I buy. Now, the reason I want it is to try and use it for gigging as the only cymbal on my kit (except hats). This means there will be sections played where I'd be leading on it, crashing. What is your opinion on this? Do you think it would work? Seeing as its 22" my only real concern, and thing I'm looking for answer for, is whether you think it would be too loud? Any help is greatly appreciated, enjoy your Omni :)

I think this would be great for a one cymbal setup Mr Flapjack. As far as volume goes - this is a pretty thin cymbal, and while it's big, it's not going to overpower the rest of the music. I bought blind on this one as well, and I don't regret my purchase.

I'll record a few samples sometime this week hopefully and post em up.

Cheers for the comments guys!

Take or leave the omni, the real gem in your setup is the fat beat hats :p

So I finally got around to slapping a video together. I've been mega-hectic with uni studies these past few weeks and really haven't had a chance to even play drums that much.

Excuse my awkwardness haha, but here's a little video on the Omni and the trash stack:

and here's a cover of a song by my friends band I did as well:

Enjoy!

Oh I forgot to mention - I've made a few changes to the kit. I went up a size with my roto and rack tom - I'm now running a 10" roto and a 12" rack. I was missing the deeper sounds, much like this combination better. I've also slightly rearranged my cymbals. I'm liking my 19" xplosion crash lower and closer to my ride, much easier to get to and crash/ride on.

Why did you name your fat hats with big letters?

Getting an 18' omni this summer. A friend of mine works at a music-store, so I got it cheap.
