Default Some Swiss Metal from Santa

Santa came in the form of Tony from cymbalsonly.com this year, and man did he bring some goodies.



16" and 18" Paiste Signature full crashes, which replace my 16" and 18" A custom crashes. I much prefer the Paistes :D

But, much to my disappointment I found a radial crack in my K custom Hybrid china, which isn't even a year old. While I wait and see whether Zildjian will replace it I'm using my Bosphorus 20" Tradional china, which is getting the job done fine.

Specs and such:

Pearl Export ELX (hopefully replacing with a PDP LXE this year)
Fusion sizes
14"x5.5" PDP all maple snare with maple hoops
14"x3" no name brass piccolo snare

Cymbals:
16" Paiste Signature Full Crash
14" Zildjian Avedis New Beat Hihats
10" Sabian Terry Bozzio Radia Splash
10" Paiste Bell (cut down 16" sound formula crash)
18" Paiste Signature Full Crash
8" Zildjian A Custom Splash
10" Zildjian A Custom Splash
18" Paiste 2002 Full Crash
20" Paiste Signature Dry Ride
20" Bosphorus Traditional China
19" Paiste New Signature Dark Energy Crash Mark I

Jealous of the new Paistes! Not that it was a secret, but you reek of Danny Carey: the avatar, the interests on your profile, the Paiste siggys... I'm no supersleuth, but I got you pegged. As for me I love Tool and Daney Carey. Every album is a masterpiece...

Your set looks great! and the black hardware is a great touch on that finish. I dig your willingness to check out diffferent cymbal co. as well. Cool stuff.

You need a 17" Paiste Fast Crash.. and maybe an 18... =) They make such an awesome additional voice to the setup. I've got a 17" Fast and it's the most beautiful crash cymbal on the planet. Want to pick up an 18 to go with it but I'm not playing enough these days to justify it.

Thanks for all the compliments guys.

TenPastTen - Damn, my secret is out! Carey and Josh Freese are really the reason I started to check out Paiste cymbals, and I can clearly see why they both use full crashes, such a great crisp and cutting sound. I think you sell yourself short if you only stick to one cymbal company, and I'm not keen on disadvantaging my sound palate for aesthetics.

driver - For what I paid for it (300 $AUS) I couldn't ask for a better snare. The wood hoops create really woody, cracking rim shots and rimclicks. I have it tuned pretty tight at the moment and it really pops, very articulate. Tuned down to a more medium tension and you can get a great bark out of it. If you're looking for a well priced wood hooped snare drum I'd definitely check it out.

crazyhorse - I'll keep an eye out for some fast crashes next time I'm at a music store and check em out

I LOVE that snare. Looks like the Akira Jimbo sig snare.
