Retired as in not used by me for jobs anymore. Not cracked, broken, too old, or waiting to be framed.
These cymbals have been replaced because of my changing tastes in sound and expression. The replacements can be seen here:

i know what you mean, about the changing tastes -

i started off a year ago with 14" New-Beats, an 18" Medium Crash, and a 20" Medium Ride (which i still have)

there's nothing at all wrong with them, and they're extremely versatile, well-made cymbals, but like you said, Ks, A-Customs, and the higher-end sabians are much more expressive, and unique sounding.

i did see your other post, with the new bronze, looks great! i bet the sound even better :-) check mine out and let me know what you think

Aw man, its you! Just opened the link with the thread showing your new cymbals, and i had spotted it last week and saved the photo to my computer as its like the exact line-up i aim for cymbal wise!
I agree with your change to these higher end cymbals - how do you find the evolution crash? And how it and the K complement each other?

The Evolution has a lighter, glassier sound then the K. Ther K is deeper pitched and trashier. I think that they sound great together. Even if they didn't, each one could be played separately in different songs. But I see no sonic or acoustic problems at all with these played together.

Nope. Just a mood swing. I usually hold on to all of my cymbals as my taste and desires change every so often.

Arty Z,

That's quite a bit of cymbals that you've 'retired'. But I can see from your previous thread why you decided to do such.

The new cymbal line-up that you have seems more "mature" if you will. I think that the new ones have more "personality" as compared to the A-Zildjians. I don't believe that that line-up would have great appeal to a begining drummer. Most new drummers appear to use a brighter/louder/heaver cymbal with lots of cutting strength. That's just my opinion only folks, please don't flame me!

However, that said, the 'retired' cymbals you have seem awfully nice to be just lying about. I personally love the sound of the 18" medium and the 16" meduim-thin A cymbals. Are they for sale?

Good job though on your choice of new cymbals. I hope that they work out well for you. I'm sure that the change you made is significant in sound quality. They look really nice too!

PS Could you please answer this question? Have you ever set up ALL of your cymbals and did an A - B comparison to hear the sound differences to your ear? Let us know if you do that and the results you receive.

Thanks a lot,

Tina, Tama-Girl
