    Hard Rock Cymbals

    I have two Zildjian A rock crashes from the 80s and they still sound great and have help up well for all of these years under hard playing. Worth a look. I now find myself liking the A medium crashes since they are a bit warmer ....

    8 or 10-lug for indie pop/rock, fusion?

    I have both 10 lug and 8 lug Tama snares. As stated above the 10 lug seems much drier (it also has a heavier hoop). I find myself playing the 8 lug 80% of the time since it is more versatile and has a nice open sound, especially for live situations.

    Is this vintage Zildjian a crash, a ride, or a crash/ride?

    Related to a question I was going to ask. There is an article from Neal Peart about some gigs he did as a teenager. He talks about his 18" Zildjian and his 20" Zildjian and borrowing a buddy's 20" Zildjian ... but he does not differentiate between crash or ride. Was that typical in the 60's...

    What are considered "cheap" cymbals?

    I have a mix of A Zildjians, 2002 10" splash and an 80's HHX Thin china. No issues they complement each other. You can mix and match brands.

    Paiste 14" 505 green table heavy Hi Hats?

    Back in 88 I picked up a used set of these hats. Used them forever until I picked up 13" new beats. I have read these are essentially Rude Hi Hats. I am going to play them again today. what does the collective think of these hats?

    DW Drums from a Non-DW Player's Perspective

    So I did not read all of the replies. I have a basic TAMA Imperialstar with Remo Ambassador heads top and bottom. Black wrap. I added the DW Design Series concert toms with a black satin painted finish. God those concert toms are heavy from the hardware. The black satin paint with the DW HW...

    New 10" splash? what type?

    Hi. I was looking for a used A Zlidjian 10" splash. Picked this up from Ebay for $40. I want to make sure this is not an older A custom but just the basic A Zildjian model. Thoughts? I think it was a good deal if it is indeed an A model. Thanks

    Neil Peart's Ludwigs

    My favorite overall kit was MP and Exit.... But the Ludwigs were really nice. Not a fan of the DW especially the last album. Too low and muddy.
