    Finally broke down and ordered a pair of Paiste 2002 17” sound edge hats. Got a notification they are delivered, so they’ll be waiting when I get home from work. 😊

    Well, here are the A’s. They sound nice, I’ve kinda missed Zildjian. They are a good bit less loud than my Paiste, which surprises me.

    I invested rather heavily in Paiste Big Beats last year. I love them. But I’m getting a little bored with the sound, so I ordered drum center of Portland’s Zildjian A sweet set Monday. 18 and 20 thin crashes, a 23” sweet ride and 15 new beat hats for $799. Seemed like a decent deal to me...

    Ludwig Acrolite Reissue

    I wanted one to go with my new classic maple kit a year and a half ago, and had no issue with paying the price. I bought next to new, and paid more than a lot of you seem willing too, but I was only interested in a 6.5x14. I have no regrets, and love the drum. I’ve thought about a Supraphonic...

    Soft/heavy sounding hi-hats

    Zildjian 15 or 16 K light hats have a lower pitch and a very smooth sound.
