Ideas for my next cymbals


Senior Member
So I've been slowly replacing my beginner cymbals with better sounding alternatives.
I now have the following:

Meinl Byzance 14" Trad Medium Hats.
Zildjian 18" A Custom Projection Crash.
Zildjian 20" A Custom Medium Ride.
Sabian 10" AAX Splash.

I want to add 2 more to the kit- perhaos another crash and a china.
Meinl or Zildjian seem like the logical choice.
What would complement what I have already?

I'm primarily interested in rock- a big fan of bands like Clutch, Tea Party, QOTSA etc.

Many thanks, I know it is kinda vague a question to be asking.
Just looking for ideas.

Well, I've got a 20" Paiste 2002 power crash that compliments my 18" Zilj Projection crash really well, at least to my ears, so I recommend it. I love riding it in heavy parts.
