    What to expect from Bosphorus cymbals?

    OMG! I have that exact ride in almost the exact same weight. The Original rides are ~medium thins by today's standards. You'll get all of the above, great edge wobble, and it will flex when struck (not as buttery as a Master's Vintage but still...). Overall great cymbal with a lot of...

    Paiste 14" 2002 Heavy Hi-hats

    Those are baaaaaaad hats (by "baaaaaaad" I mean freaking great!). Paiste's "heavy" hats usually weigh in around the same as Sabian and Zildjian mediums so they're very responsive and versatile. Those are real sleepers in the 2002 line IMHO.

    New Sabian models

    Very interesting approach. It looks like new AAX models are getting the HHX treatment sans hammering on the bell. Their surface texture looks very Paiste-like with the dense large-peen hammering and pin lathing. I'd love to play them in person.

    Just got new drums!

    So YOU got that green kit, drummertom!! I was looking at that color among other options (red, rosewood, blue) but couldn't resist the blue. Too many good colors to choose from.

    Poll: The Sabian Re-Brand

    SABIAN? Are you reading this? I appreciated the "what's your sound?" campaign with all of the comparative videos of similar products (raw bell rides across 4 lines; 18" crashes across 4 or 5 lines, etc.). Really, that was brilliant - basic, to the point, and gets to the heart of what we do...

    Poll: The Sabian Re-Brand

    I'm not sure who what the point of this "rebrand" is. It seems that having a "hip" or "exciting" logo just hijacks the conversation away from their cymbals and that's not productive. Though I agree that sometimes the original logo seems bulky, it was stylistically"neutral." Meaning, you could...
