Favorite Cymbal Series


Based off what I've played; Zildjian K Custom. What I've heard; Paiste Signature & Meinl Byzance Vintage Sand series.

Definitely Meinl Byzance. Which subline? Well, that's a damn tough nut. Probably the Darks for the sole reason that they have my favorite cymbals, the Dark Spectrum hats.

I adore HHX Evolutions as well.

The majority of my favorite cymbals have been from the Zildjian A line. There's something magical about the HHX Evolutions, though...I've never played one I didn't like.

I guess I'm a K Custom guy.

I have 2 K Custom rides (KC Dark Ride and KC Medium Ride) as well as K Custom Dark Hats. Hands down my favorite pair of hats that I own.


Would have to be Meinl's Byzance. I don't think I could pick a sub-line though.. Though the Vintage, Extra Dry, Jazz, Traditional, Dark and Brilliant all stand out to me. Wait a minute..!

Can't say I have a single favourite line: I've got a mix of Ks, HHs, HHXs, Artisans, Byzance, etc. Anything dark that doesn't sound trashy usually gets my vote.

For crashes, UFIP Class and Paiste Signatures.
For rides, no favorite series.
Splashes, UFIP Class.
Chinas, no favorites. I like any and all of them.
