Default New Zildjian Ks with my 6pc. Mapex Saturn in Antique Ivory

I ordered some new Zildjian Ks a couple weeks back to replace some crappy Sabians, and just got access to my camera so i'm posting some new pictures. He're the specs:

Mapex Saturn Studioease '08 in Antique Ivory
10" tom
12" tom
14" fl. tom
16" fl. tom
22x20" bass
14x5.5 snare

Zildjian 13" A Custom/Z Dyno Beat Hi-hats
Zildjian 21" 60s era Ride, converted to sizzle
Zildjian 10" Avedis Splash
Zildjian 8" K Custom Dark Splash
Zildjian 20" K Custom Dark Ride (new!)
Zildjian 16" K Medium Thin Dark Crash (new!)

Now i've finally got a complete set of Zildjians. Sonic harmony!

Mighty fine kit and cymbals! K's are amazing. I dig new beats and dyno beats as well!

The K-custom dark ride is a classic!

tah-tah-tah-tah....

How's that 16" K Dark Crash Med. Thin?
Would it be good as a main crash?

Explain the sound to me (Is it like the sound file on zildjian website?)?

You know what, some people say the 16" Dark Crash isn't loud enough to be a main crash but i beg to differ. I think it would make a great main crash and yes it sounds exactly like the website clip. It sounds absolutely stunning, and sharkey go for the Saturns for sure, you won't regret it.

I don't think I could live with only 1 crash! mighty good looking kit though.

The Ks are a very nice addition.

I like the finish on that Saturn kit. Are the Studioease maple shells or birch?

That really is a nice kit.

The reason I was asking about the 16" K Dark Medium Thin was because I want to pair it up with an 18" K Dark Thin.

Not meaning to hijack your thread, sorry. Ignore me everyone! ;)

To TTNW: the shells are 5 inner plies of maple, with the outside 2 being walnut. Makes for a really warm but punchy combination.

Gorgeous kit! Love the finish.
But, I believe the "inner" plys are the walnut, hence the dark interiors
Cheers

nuts woolton, you're absolutely right. I should've guessed the outer plies were maple by their appearance. Thanks for the edit!
