    Zildjian K constantinople 18" crash Anyone got one, a wanna have a chat about it??

    The Avedis rides are really good and really cheap. I paid about 170 bucks for mine 2 years ago. Now that I moved the 20" Sweet Crash the the left side, I like it even more. The hats in the picture are 14" '60s stamp Aveids as well. Also pretty darn good and cheapish. I paid $225 for the pair...

    OT: Bourbon drinkers? Favorite Bourbon...

    Thread resurrections! I'm sitting here after a hard day of working on a Sunday and sipping a Manhattan made with Knob Creek Single Barrell Reserve 9 yr old. 120 proof! Good grief! You can make a Manhattan with anything really, I often prefer Rye, but never skimp on the cherries. Luxardo or nothing.

    Your favorite photo of your favorite drummer

    This one. My moment of Zen. I plan to frame this and put it on my office wall. One for the inspiration and two for the stupid question. "why do you have a picture of a man smoking a cigarette hanging on your wall?" This photo speaks to me beyond Art being my favorite drummer.

    GOATS - Greatest Drummers of All Time, As Voted By You

    Sammy Davis Jr and Johnny Carson are not on this list either. They are way better drummers than Meg.

    Taxes for selling your gear

    Wait? The govt wants me to report proceeds from sales of things I bought with income that was taxed? I don't think so. I lose money on this stuff, so no capital gains to report.

    OT Favorite Clint Eastwood Movies

    Million Dollar Baby, now that was a soul crushing viewing. A great movie you never want to watch again, like Leaving Las Vegas. Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, very good, very underrated. And The Dude is in it.

    Your latest cymbal purchase.....

    I agree, I'll get it soon enough. I will probably keep the Sweet Crash too. The bell on it is really good and it's right where I need it sound wise for the blues band. Works well with my 22" vintage Avedis ride.

    Your latest cymbal purchase.....

    Business has been good. Instead of buying more Apple stock with some of my Q1 bonus money, I bought an 18" K Con crash, a 20" K Sweet Crash and a set of 14" K Con High Hats and another cymbal bag. All great cymbals, but I am sorry I didn't get the 20" K Cluster Crash instead. I'll guess i'll...

    Zildjian K constantinople 18" crash Anyone got one, a wanna have a chat about it??

    I just bought me one this past Sunday along with 2 other cymbals. I played it for maybe 2 songs at BP later the same day and put the 18" K-Custom Fast Crash back on the stand after those two songs. In the group setting playing the blues with no mics on the drums, it didn't cut thru mix. But...
