    Agop 30th Anniversary Hi-Hat...

    Hej! I thought this beauty is worth a thread. Shopped it today in Cologne (which is now very near since I study at Folkwang Conservatory in Essen)...I tested two versions.

    Good day to you, after some time I want to post some new music. In september I had the first (full-length) concert with a trio called "TreeDom". We spent time at home, writing and developing a sound. I love this group...when we started off we played some Orenette Coleman and oriental world...

    God dag everyone! Well, again I got a new pie. This has to stop certainly. :-) The new toy is a Meinl, my first Meinl actually. A "Jazz" Extra Thin Ride in 22". I saw this one when I helped a friend find a new ride. I tested the 22" and the 20" version, the 22" could send out more love...

    Standard Arrangement - Birthday Recording Session

    Hey yo! I had a fun birthday recording session on monday (the singer and me have birthday on the 21st). It`s kind of a project band of music collegues. It features piano, double bass, a great singer I didn`t know before and my humble self on drums. We had two rehearsals before the recording...

    Good work Bill Stewart!

    Yeah, so imagine a small, sleepy guy: Karl. Looking for a nice new pie...specifically he is looking for a (since version one is discontinued) rare ride cymbal, a K Custom Dry Complex Ride 22" version one. Thin, in good shape, sexy...the cymbal I mean. Well, one day he finds this cymbal...

    Another Agop cymbal...beautiful!

    Hi! Mhhhh, some time ago I couldn`t resist again. Ordered another Istanbul Agop pie from Tony (Cymbalsonly.com). I`ve always wanted a flat ride. So, I did it again and got a 20" Agop Turk Flat Ride. It`s 1710g light, unlathed and produces the typical dry Turk sound. Short decay, fast response...
