    Your latest cymbal purchase.....

    Here are my latest. The 602 14" sound edge hats that I mentioned earlier and now the Masters Swish. Has a nick on the edge but for just over $300 I'm not complaining. It's the most beautiful cymbal. Absolutely gorgeous sounding.

    Your latest cymbal purchase.....

    So the 602 14" SE hats came yesterday. All I can say is wow!! These may be the best hats I have ever played. The sound edge on these is less pronounced than on the Signature SE bottom I paired with a SF top. These are a lot lighter and mellower. Beautiful sound.

    Your latest cymbal purchase.....

    Just picked up a Signature 14" sound edge bottom and a Masters 22" Thin. Both are great. I paired the hat bottom with a Sound Formula medium Top and I like the sound a lot. I might try some other combinations too, like the Dimensions Thin top or a Sound Formula Full crash, which is also...

    Your first "pro" cymbal as a kid

    My first pro cymbal was a Sabian 8" HH splash. It was pretty much all I could afford. My second pro cymbal(s) was the Sound Formula hats I still have. I think Guitar Center was blowing them out for $80. I just happened to be in the store that day and knew the Paiste name from some 502s a...

    heavy flat rides

    I just weighed my paiste flat rides. 2002 vintage black label 20" Flat Ride - 2258 3000 20" Flat Ride - 2226 Very similar, but the 3000 has much more hammering. Both are much quieter than my vintage 2002 20 and 22 rides as well as my Big Beats. I'd recommend them as they are cheap and sound...

    Thanks for the input. I've been keeping my eyes peeled for 15" bottoms, including sound edges.
