What discontinued cymbals/gear would you love to get your hands on, or put back into production?

The Paiste Dimensions series, and some sort of Paiste mini china. The Twenty series had one for a while (8"-12") and it was awesome. Now they don't have anything.
Paiste 505's and Paiste 1000's. Some of the best B8 bronze cymbals I've heard.
Zildjian Z Custom's. These could cut through anything, just remember your hearing protection!

I like those 1st Gen Zildjian AMIR cymbals. I think they were originally created to compete with 2002 crashes because they are also B8 alloy. The subsequent generations were made to be budget cymbals, so I don't look for those. But the 1st gen with the capital letters are the ones to find.

Zildjians Cymbal Snaps. Had them on all of my cymbal stands back in the day. Would work wonders today for my gigs.
