don't buy more cymbals, upgrade them. Time to replace that brass.

Start upgrading that sheet stuff to some real cymbals. Personally I'd get rid of the crashes and upgrade them first. Then probably the hats and the ride.

I can't stand ZBT or ZXT crashes, the hats aren't far behind, but the ride is bearable.

I guess you should do it based on what you're own feelings are, if you are happy with your crashes and would rather get some new hats or a new ride then go for it. I just personally really dislike Zildjian's sheet bronze crashes.

How are your heads? Is your hardware working well? Got enough sticks?
Start with the basics. Then I would upgrade the cymbals. Start with the hats, even if they're most expensive (and they usually are).

Theres always room for latin percussion accesories. Cowbell and stuff like that.

I wouldn't get anything else until you upgrade those cymbals.

Yeah I agree with everyone. Keep the wuhan and the trashformer and update the rest. You will be much happier with that later and kick yourself for spending your cash on a little fun accessory and not on a amazing new cymbal.

CYMBALS!
Trade in what you got now for new cymbals.
I personally feel that 3 good pro cymbals beats a load of cheap sheet cymbals.

I completley agree. I would first suggest actually selling all the crashes/splashes, and geting 2 nice crashes. I would then upgrade the ride. I would upgrade the hihats last because i actually really like those hats you have for some reason. There are plenty of "proline" hi hats i like less than the ones you have now.

I disagree. Even though you may like ZBTs, "pro-level" hats are going to be worth it in the end.. besides, it's the sound that he's looking for, not you. And crashes/effects usually come last, the two most important cymbals in any given setup are the hats and the ride.

hawkins: look around and find a nice set of hi-hats for yourself. zildjian a's are probably the most standard choice if you're looking for an all-around pair of hats. new beats or mastersounds, most definitely. then, find a ride that complements either your style or the hats themselves. you could go with zildjian A/K, or sabian AA/HH if you wanted to mix brands. crashes and splashes come very last .. trust me, i've got a set of 14" Bosphorus Trad hats with a 20" Trad ride .. and then a Paiste PST 5 Thin Crash.. so don't worry about upgrading crashes until you've already figured out those 'basic' components.
