Nearly forgot, due to tinkering with the new Acro toy- I ordered 7 pair of new/old stock ProMark 808 oak nylon, now discontinued... Currently looking for the same in hickory, and also 707 oak and hickory, nylon tip.
For transporting my 2nd tier rehearsal kit cymbals more easily, I also picked up a Steve Weiss-branded (per the little red tag attached) "Liberty One" (says that nowhere on the bag) cymbal bag, which may be the best $20 cymbal bag on the market- decent padding, shoulder strap, hi-hat pocket. Not to jinx myself, but I haven't carried any cymbals yet, so I hope the strap or handles don't snap loose immediately. View attachment 113858
