I was at the Z factory this week,
Love your Elements. I have the same setup in the black/green fade finish. I love mine - how do you like em?I was at the Z factory this week, and let me tell you i am a drummer of 40 years and i have seen my share of cymbals and i play piaste/sabian and Zildjian. What I saw in that factory blew my mind, to start clean is not the word also there is no BS going on behind the production line they are making huge strides in quality control, I know because I am a operations manager so i was looking outside the box during the tour, also the way they test every cymbal during each step of making each kind of cymbal is mind bogling. check out my pictures on the community tool bar third from the left at the top of the screen.
I love my Zildjians! Can you imagine how it would be if you could go to the factory and spend several hours there picking out whatever cymbals you wanted? To me that would be really making it to the big time.
