Don’t tell @csnow ! He’ll go “flipping” crazy if he hears about this…especially if he’s been sucking back on craft beers! Nice cymbal though mate, I might’ve been interested but I can’t justify 4 Paiste ride cymbals!!
ooo didnt know he was with aquarian, always thought he was remo and evans only, cheers for the info!This is appropriate and approved as he was an Aquarian player.
They're phenomenal heads. I will be going back to them after a brief experimentation with Evans.
I think perhaps it was short lived. I recall reading that in the liner notes for Vulgar Display of Power. I could be wrong, as I'm old and getting the onset of CRS.ooo didnt know he was with aquarian, always thought he was remo and evans only, cheers for the info!
hahahaha well you never know, he may want it (if he's UK based). and awww, you know you want it! its a discontinued ride so its rare to find now
*as senator palpatine* do it
So I took this out on a blues gig last night clamped to the batter hoop of my Ludwig Standards (which is an original hoop with a bevel for an inlay) holding a 21" AAX Omni. This isn't the heaviest ride around by any stretch, but it does get crashed like a real crash. I had to ditch the very thick, very hard felt washers that came with it and use thinner, softer ones. Where I clamped it on the hoop was where it seemed like the vertical post could be straightest up-and-down, which felt a little lower than I like, but not by much. I quickly adapted. It also needed to be pulled in quite a bit (I like my ride hanging just a hair over my floor tom for reach's sake), but that meant the L-rod was actually sticking out quite a ways and forced me to move the floor tom back. I found a compromise position finally by turning the top portion around so that the tilter rod was on my side of the gear.. The actual gear is solid - once I got it firmly clamped, it never budged all night. The hoop clamp was surprisingly secure (I've had bad luck with some before), as was the L-rod clamp (which has a memory lock that helps a lot both to hold it steady and to get the position right every time). Best of all, I can fold the whole thing flat against the drum shell and transport it on the drum instead of removing it every time, which is extra cool. So maybe 4 of 5 stars from me.Just pulled the trigger on one of these new Pearl BD hoop mount cymbal holders. Have been meaning to put a ride cymbal mount on my Standards but I really didn't want to drill any more on that poor abused thing. This looks super solid and the toothless tilter was the deciding factor. I'll let you know how it goes. I've really had to re-evaluate my opinion of Pearl's hardware as of late. (also check out their new curved cymbal booms... weird huh?)

Welp, more money out the door! Snapped up one of those Sabian AAX 17" Concept Crashes for $110 from Sweetwater. They're just now showing as out of stock - I might've got the last one! (I think there's a few more places selling them at this price. The 16" is also on sale for $99.)

I *almost* got the 16" because I was thinking I could pair it with my A Custom projection crash for 16" hats. But I like the sound of the 17"s I heard. I'm looking forward to playing it out very soon!I bought both the 16 inch and 17 inch, and I use them on the church drum set. They are excellent thin crashes. Peace and goodwill.
