"cheap drums, lush cymbals"

I always thought that was the way to go if you have to make a choice (although you may be taking it further than I'd contemplate), but it seems like around here I see alot of high-intermediate level drumsets w/ 5 toms and double pedals, and a bunch of ZBT or Sabian B8 cymbals - I don't get it but I guess it works for them. Nice to see somebody going in the cymbalcentric direction.

How do you like Ufip? I saw a Sign for them at music go round but havent heard them. How much do they cost(if you dont mind me asking)? How do they compare to other cymbals of similar price range?

I agree on that. Why do people buy crap cymbals? I had a crap ''assembled-from-lots-of-other-kits'' drum kit as my first. But I went for Zildjian A customs, and Paiste 2002, and I am very happy today that I did it this way. I still have the cymbals.

Nice looking kit, man. Nice to see someone go the ''right'' way! Looking good!

Glad to see you like it. Its soon gonna become a yamaha oak custom on a pearl dr503 rack.

Ufip, i heard about from a drum teacher i had, he got a small selection of them, splashes, hats etc, i loved the sound of them so i tried a few others out in a music shop, yet again loved them. I got em from a guy my drum teacher found out about in chicago called Jim Betsios. I think he's UFIPMAN on this forum.

I'd rate them above zildjian, sabian, paiste, anyone.

They have the same build quality, if not better, but have a much less processed, mass produced sound. Theres a lot more tone to them, more emotion, such a varied tone when u hit them lighter and softer, theres even a totally different character depending on where on the cymbal u hit. Ive found that the "mainstream" cymbals dont have such a varied sonic range. UFIP allows me to play virtually any style because all of my cymbals can create such a wide range of sounds.

Wow. CB to Oak Custom, that's a huge upgrade, I've got the midrange stage custom but with the matte finish on an Oak outer ply that looks tremendous, do they have any of the matte finishes on the all oak drums?.
I also think I know what you mean abou that "something" that the UFIP's have. I had the remarkable good fortune to come across an Istanbul AGOP in a local bigname music store and am falling in love with it since I put it on my set - the same store now has a 16" UFIP crash.

It's cool that you put so much thought and priority into cymbal selection, to me it's the sound of the cymbals and the way that they are played that really make the "music" in a drumbeat and make it fit the rest of the ensemble, particularly the melody instruments.

Ive had the CB for aaaages now, so i think its time to bring the shells up to the same grade as the cymbals.

Looking for something along the lines of 18"kick, 12" rack tom, 16" hanging floor tom, 12" Bamboo vented snare (yet another influence from my last drum teacher. Beautiful snare.)

Im not much of a fan of lots of toms, i think, 2, 3 toms, and 2 snares is all i need. plus u start moving into a kit where u need a small car to get around it (portnoy and his 2 thrones).

Anyone incorporating electronics into their kit? How do they find the mix?
I find its almost a second kit. Like one massivly versatile percussion instrument. Ive got my spds rigged with a kick trigger and a mesh pad so ive kinda got a small vdrum kit added to my acoustic kit :-D

my guess is the drums, not cymbals, are the biger part of those drummers' voice.

Like I said "I guess it works for them," Best way to put it is, It's "strange to me" and that doesn't mean unacceptable or repugnant, it just means "strange to me."

Like ive sed a bit earlier, i get my ufip's from Jim Betsios in chicago. with the current exchange rate, it works out the same, if not a bit cheaper than a nice set of Zildjian K's. Even with import duty.
