What's your latest purchase?

I just pulled the trigger on my first cymbal purchase in a very very long time, a set of Amedia Ahmet Legend crashes - 17", 18", & 19".

My current cymbal collection covers a lot of ground, so absolutely not a necessary purchase, but they'll provide a specific voice I've been eyeing for some time. I'll put something up once I receive them.

I think so :) I've tried Ahmet Legends before, & really liked them. Of course, pretty much my entire cymbal collection is made up of various Amedia series.
same! alex is a gem! :)

Alex & I go back a long way. We met when we both had an artist deal with the previous management of Amedia UK. Alex ended up taking over the company, & I've remained associated ever since. I've never had to look beyond Amedia for any sonic requirements. I use the same setup 90% of the time, but I have another 3 complete sets plus a fair few "specials".

I wish I could agree - tried several times to contact Alex wanting to buy his cymbals - :( I 've just bought Zildjian K-sweets.
did you use the website contact form or the FB page? as thats odd he would be unreachable :/

Well, Andy did say "Non better". I wouldn't exactly consider that a glowing review.

I find that very strange. I don't praise people lightly. He's not only the most honest & down to earth guy you could wish to meet, he usually goes to extreme lengths to service clients.

I believe you. I was playing off of the irony from your misspelling. Just a bad attempt at humor. My apologies. Carry on.
 
Picked up this second-hand Paiste Sound Formula 16" full crash.
Didn't know much about the discontinued SF range, but took a punt on it as the guy was selling it super cheap.
Really impressed with the complex tone from it.
I believe these are close in quality to the signature range which succeeded it.

E-mail contact from the web site in the first instance - no response to that. Andy kindly gave him a nudge and he did mail me apologising, but then follow ups requesting price and availability went unanswered - two voicemail messages seemingly ignored - gave up at that point and spent my money elsewhere.
I'm sure there was no malice in it - nothing but good reviews on both the cymbals and the man, hence my desire to buy. Disappointing that hours of you tube viewing was wasted and having finally made a decision it was painful to have to go through it all again and find something else - but I'm only willing to chase a seller for so long. Plenty of options out there and I'm really liking the K's so I'm happy.

Pleased you got sorted with cymbals you like - that's the main thing. Can't explain lack of response - that's disappointing. It will be "mentioned".

Stellar Wood hoops arrived for the Steambent kit that I have ordered from Summit Drums . Stellar does beautiful work for very reasonable prices especially when compared to what Yamaha charged for their wood hoops .

Dream dark matter 15" hats and an LP Cyclops mounted tambourine. Love the sound of both!
