    Bought my first Dream Bliss Cymbal

    For a while now ive had a 16" Zildjian Avedis medium thin crash that just wasnt working for me. Its a louder, brash cymbal, better suited towards rock and live playing. I wanted something darker and more complex like my 16" thin avedis. I was browing ebay today, and saw a Dream Bliss 18"...

    anyone know what these are (toms/octobans?) Ive just bought these... for £5 it seemed a no brainer. They have 6" heads, and the lugs have "M's" engraved into them. The mounting is a kind of slide on bracket (no idea how i'll mount them yet) would value any ideas

    Avedis...with A or without?

    Does anyone know why some zildjian Avedis cymbals have the small A logo on them (such as the large one found on the A customs) and some do not? Ive just purchased a 16" thin crash, which is definitely an Avedis, but has no A on it. Is the A a more recent addition to the avedis line (e.g...

    stupid question.... (bass drum head)

    ... but is there any way at all.. to get a 22" resonant head onto a 20" drum? i screwed up and won an item on ebay thats the wrong size... its an ebony ambassador 22" head, with the john bonham logo on the front of it. Would love to have it on my kit, but sadly its just a 20" drum.

My plan had been at the end of the month, to add a 17" A custom crash (or 17" Avedis thin crash, as it sounds similar, if slightly less complex). The...

    Cymbals... argh... need guidance

    having bought myself a kit that i absolutely love... i plan to upgrade the cymbals on it, a bit at a time. Currently, it has the horrid "solar" hi hats, crash and splash, with a STAGG SH 20" ride. The ride is actually quite nice, and seems to be one of staggs better efforts, so it'll likely...
