I've listened to both the 21" ride and the 14" hats and they sound pretty nice. Was wondering if anyone was currently using either of these. Any comments appreciated. Or any advice on some good mid range priced cymbals too.
I have a deal cooking for a couple K dark custom crashes so I won't need any Agop crashes. I appreciate your opinion on the ride though. I sat through a comparo video of rides w/ my eyes closed and kept coming back the Xist ride. I'm not looking to blow the budget on this 2nd set of cymbals that I'll be using for my Saturn V kit. You can't beat their pricing. That's for sure.I liked the 21" Xist ride so much that I got 3 of them. One for each of the 2 sets I keep set up and one for my cased up gig kit. They have a nice combination of wash and ping, like 50/50. Istanbuls have the best bells I've heard so far, plus the crash sound is really nice. It's completely useable with zero gonginess or clang.
Yo MoneyDog !! I sent you a direct msg.I've got a pair of the 15" hi hats. They are solid, and do agree, remind me of Zildjian. Maybe a hair less "brighter" than the New Beats. They've been relegated to the storage cymbal bag due to GAS and my fascination with the Sabian HHX lineup. Let me know if you'd be interested in them.
