    Mehmet & Bosphorus Cymbals

    Well scratch the 12" Trad Pang.. Amazon shipped it in an envelope, so it arrived destroyed. What a waste.

    DW Collector's Series Exotic Dragonwood

    My DW bass drum does not play well with SK1 or SKII, sounds like all mids and no punch. The best heads I have used for that kick are Evans Emad 2 (controlled), and Gmad (max volume).

    I have a new CS Reverse Dot Coated on my Copperphonic. So far, coating has not chipped, and seems to he holding up as well as my WFL III Aluminum that has an Aquarian Studio X.

    Mehmet & Bosphorus Cymbals

    Received the 22" Mehmet Traditional Swish. Wow, this one is really thin and dark, very mellow and dynamic, haunting. Sounds great flipped either way, even has a decent bell. I also have the 12" Mehmet Pang arriving today, and an Agop Dry/Dark Splash 10" tomorrow! It's a MONSTER!

    Zildjian 20" A Take Five Reissue Ride Cymbal - Memphis Drum Shop

    I find it amazing that Zil no longer hand hammers any cymbals. One would think that they would have at least one line of uber-expensive handmade pies. Maybe a K Con Master/Artist series with $999 hi hats.

    Amazon deals thread

    This one has riverts. They use generic pics on Amazon and most other sites for Istanbul cymbals. The product code RVJ-SZ24 shows the "SZ" in the code, if it were non-riveted it would be RVJ-24. Hope this helps!
