So I recently bought my first drum set off of Craigslist ( used ) and the hi-hats...
I don't know if its me, incorrect assembly, or bad/cheap cymbals but was just looking for some advice especially since I don't have deep pockets to go spending on some 2002 15" Paiste Hats ( if...
After putting down the sticks and selling my last kit (Yamaha Recording Custom) 35-years ago, I'm building a new drum kit. I've decided on the shell pack (20" BD/10-12-14 toms) and I'm unlikely to play gigs or in the studio, but as a successful audio engineer here in Nashville, I know what good...
I bought this kit off of a friend of mine that bought in it new in 1976 (1975 manufacture). It's the white leatherette finish that is still the craze today (slow down, Francis, it's not for sale). The cool thing is the fact that it came with all original hardware and cymbals. The original...
After years of not posting here, I’m back. And years of playing only Zildjian, I started getting a hankering to try some Paiste cymbals. I just picked up this used Giant Beat Multi 20” and a new PST7 19” thin crash. Man, do they all look out of place together like that. 🤣. Not sure how well...
Does anyone know what the hell kind of cymbal this is? Its SUPER heavy at (I believe) 20" or 22". I would love to know it the name of this type of cymbal, how it may have been used and its origin. It sounds like a ride....
A friend picked up an old K 16" in a job lot sale. He offered to trade me for a pint of beer. There are some cracks and tearing round the centre hole
I'm looking to get it valued before he does something silly. Any help on identification is gratefully accepted
After several weeks of shopping, I got some cymbals to go with my Tama Imperial Star shell pack. MANY thanks to the people here and all the discussions I read on different cymbal tones, timbres, brilliance, and many other descriptors I am still learning!
I'm near Denver, so ended up at the Lodo...

Paiste PST 5 Pack
Paiste Alpha H-Hats
Paiste Alpha Ride

This will cost about as much as the Zht Pack
If i get the cheaper packs I...
HELP : Cleaning Fingerprints Off Cymbals
Hey Guys !!!!
Just a question for you , Ive got some planet z's that ive just cleaned up with my new Zildjian cymbal cleaner and it worked a treat but my cymbals are old (Maybe 2 years) and there was some finger marks on them actually there were loads...
Ok, I'm kind of a beginner, and I was wondering which cymbals are better, Sabian or Zildjian? I've heard Sabians are cheaper with a better warranty but Zildjians are better quality and better looking. Is all this true, and is there more? I'm on a budget but don't want to sacrifice quality for...
In my quest for better cymbals, I have stumbled upon the K Mastersounds.
I personally love them. I love the sound they make, the characteristic Mastersound chick to 'em, and the fact that I know that K's will have a pretty sweet resale value.
I'm just concerned about whether or not they would...
Just a quick question that will probably get answered in the first reply :p
But can anyone tell the Sabian equivalent to the Zildjian Z Custom line, if there is an equivalent at all?
Obviously there will not be a direct line in Sabian cymbals that match everything about the Z...

I've been visiting the forum for a long while now, but this is the first time I've posted. I was wondering if any of you lovely people have had the pleasure of playing a Zildjian Breakbeat Ride? I can't find any reviews or videos anywhere. I've listened to the soundclip on the Zildjian...
