    Ride cymbal for recording metal?

    Mea Culpa - I’ve never recorded metal. But I’m guessing that you have something about you that makes you different. All of these suggestions are excellent, but you should pick one (I’d get two different ones) that are the mark of your own style and uniqueness. Pete

    Good deal on New Beat Hats?

    Thing is that NBs aren’t made to all sound alike. They were designed right from the start to offer certain benefits over a matched pair.

    Good deal on New Beat Hats?

    The positive and negative thing about New Beats is that they vary, sometimes a lot. My early NBs c1965 are dark like K. Zildjians from that era. Hard to agree with hating the sound of New Beats as my immediate question would be “which pair?”

    I need that thick, deep, Nashville country music snare drum! What do I get?

    How you tune it, of course, is up to you. Not cheap as the above drum sold for 700. Pete edit - never played Country Music

    Been lusting after this drum for years. It ain’t maple though. https://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-PREMIER-14X9-BRASS-HEAVY-ROCK-NINE-SNARE-DRUM/303600278388?hash=item46affc9b74:g:jkMAAOSwCaJe6-kx#vi__app-cvip-panel

    Band names?

    Now, I want to be clear. I’m talking about actual monkeys here. Maybe a chimp or two but absolutely NO Gorillaz. That name is already covered. Pete

    Band names?

    And, of course all their fans would call themselves The Monkey Touchers. It only seems right.

    AAX Hats vs X-Celerator for X-Hat Setup

    I’m thinking you should look for something that’s a half step sound wise away from your current set up. 12in hats, maybe Paiste Sound Edge or similar. Pete

    Zildjian ZHT

    You’re bored. However, the ZHT series sounded (IMO) kind of like my old Sabian Pro cymbals (the first ones). I don’t own a china myself but my church owns a ZBT 14in china that makes me throw up in my mouth. So by comparison, the H series must be several steps better. Plus china’s are trash...
