Default I bought them.

WOAH.

I can't even believe it. It all happened so fast.

I BOUGHT IT!!!!!



Within a few days, these will be my new babies.

What do you think???

I'm slowly recovering from the shock of all that money ($475) being taken from my account, but now I'm happy to receive these cool cymbals!

Yeah baby!

:D

Thank you! There's a 20" Medium Ride, 18" Medium Thin Crash, 16' Medium Thin Crash, 14" New Beat Hi-Hats, described as a little over a year old and hardly played, in almost new condition, and he'll even throw in a used cymbal bag,

$475.00... thats it? Nice purchase buddy! I'm sure that you are going to enjoy your purchase after you get over the shock of the drop in your bank account. Drumming is an expensive hobby... especially when it comes to cymbals.

yep, sounds like post-partem shock from shelling out that cash. You made a bad decision since you needed that money for other sensibilities. I'll help you though, i can replace that $475 in your checking if you want to send me those beauties,ERRR... evil, wicked, cash depleting cymbals. I know you're getting cold feet about the deal already.

Excellent decision. Let us know what you think when you get them. Give yourself a little time to get a feel for the sound.

Thanks guys! I appreciate that you aren't bashing me for making an "impulse buy!"

But yeah, as for my PST 5, I'm not so sure. I really like the sound of it, so I'm probably just gonna see how it fits in with my (it feels weird to type) Zildjian A's. If I don't like it, I'll sell it.

Now, my PST 3s...haha, I'm definitely selling those garbage can lids!

Wow man congrats those look sweet, the wait for new gear feels like a lifetime, but the sound of cymbals that you pay for yourself sound that much better, be sure to make some videos when you get em. You might wanna keep those pst 3 cause that make great extreme frizbees, especially the ride.

Yeah, I mean I hope I like them. They LOOK really great, but the sounds online are all bad on Zildjian's website (Paiste has the best sound files IMO). Supposedly the "most versatile cymbals ever," I don't see how I could've made a better purchase.

Haha or I could take them to gigs to make it look like I have a lot of cymbals, and then just use my good ones!

$475 sounds like a nice deal. Congratulations. New beat hi-hats are like the ultimate workhorse hats. Rumored to be the best selling hi-hats of all time. Make sure to upload some pics when they ship.

Uh, of course! And I'll have pictures of the UPS truck, the box sitting on my porch, etc...

Just out of curiosity, are the crashes any good?

No, they sound like tin cans... you should really send them to me. They're so bad, you should pay me for taking them.

But seriously, with how long the A's have been around, they kind of have to sound good.

Those med thin A crashes are really good. I use an 18" and a 16" med thin for my rock gigs.
Very versatile cymbals.

Congratulations.

I am a big fan of Zildjian As.

You will like that ride. It's very versatile and crashes pretty well too.

Have fun with those.

The best part? After 20, 30, 40 years, they'll sound even better! I can tell you that because I have 20+ year old New Beat hats and Medium Ride, 25+ year old 18" Medium Crash, and a 35+ year old 17" Medium Crash!

That 17 is usually my favorite crash of everything I own. Just the perfect example of what "crash" should sound like.

That said, they will sound far different than what you're used to. My band's drummer got a kit a few years ago outfitted with newer Zil As... and I hated the sound. Hated, that is, until we got out and started gigging with them.

Great, versatile cymbals, and they only get better with age. Just don't EVER EVER EVER polish 'em!

I'm so glad to see you have a saga that has a happy ending. I know you've had some hiccups along the way with some other deals (ddrum swap anyone?), but this is the very essence of "art of the deal." You had a budget for some new hats, swallowed the "new" pride, and scored an complete set of used, but, incredible cymbals for just about your budget. And to top it off, you got rid of that Pearl albatross and now have pared down to your original 805 with some Zildjian A's. Your patience has paid off immensely. Good work.
