I'm really glad I've read so many of you are Remo fans..it makes me feel sane when I can be overly picky. I don't like alot of my personality weirdnesses but one thing I do actually like is that when I flip out over something it's basically for life such as paiste cymbals. I still look to this day into everything but it only reaffirms my fondness of paiste cymbals. Yeears ago I had a verbal battle with some bit-- at paiste over an obvious warranty issue. I was so ticked afterwards that I swore I'd ditch them all for sabian gear but I couldn't. I'm usually sickeningly polite but this A-Hole pushed my Mr.hyde button HARD.
