    A. Zildjian 1960s 18" crash-ride, 1363g

    I made a quick demo-clip of this cymbal today:

    A. Zildjian 1960s 18" crash-ride, 1363g

    I found Gerry's sound-file for this cymbal. You can hear that it's much more complex and interesting than the average 1960s A. Zildjian.

    A. Zildjian 1960s 18" crash-ride, 1363g

    I picked this one out from a handful that Hazelshould had for sale about 4 years ago. Sounded exceptionally good to me compared to the others, and I added one rivet to make it even more interesting and sweet. It's in structurally perfect condition; no cracks, no keyhole, no nicks. Very nice for...

    Tony Williams Miles-era Cymbal

    Hey, thanks. First of all, I guess I should say that outside of buying a couple Spizzichino TW tributes and an Agop SE Jazz TW, I haven't focused much time and energy trying to land a cymbal that sounds convincingly like Tony's does (or what I imagine his cymbal would actually sound like if I...

    Tony Williams Miles-era Cymbal

    I’m chucking at myself for that oversight. You’re absolutely correct.

    Tony Williams Miles-era Cymbal

    I always respect your opinions and experience, Paul. I also have a long history, when this type of discussion arises, of trying to make a distinction between musicality and tonality. I believe that if, for example, Tony had played the entirety of his Nefertiti sessions using a 14" Z Custom...

    I Hate Virgin Bass Drums and the Resulting Need for Stand Mounted Toms

    I generally prefer toms to be mounted from the bass drums, too. One exception was this 1961 Gretsch Progressive Jazz outfit. The rail placement was a 1/2 'panel' to the left, compared to the more standard rail placement (more centered on top of the bass drum). This put the tom waaay off to the...

    Am i the only one who has never had any luck with Paiste?

    I've tried, diligently, several times over the decades to get into Paiste cymbals. I've had full sets of 602s, Signatures, Dark Energies (twice), and Sound Creations (three times). Sound Creation Dark Medium Hi-hats are a longstanding constant for me, and I wouldn't ever want to be without...

    Humes & Berg Enduro Pro foam-lined drum cases - 8x12 and 14x14

    I've got Humes & Berg Enduro Pro foam-lined drum cases in 8x12" and 14x14" sizes. These are as good and protective cases as you're going to find, and I've never taken these particular two out of the house, so they're minty and still have the original tags on them. They look like this: I'd sell...

    I snapped that shot in artificial light, and I think its yellow hue might've made the badge look greener than it is. I just now tried to color-correct it. See if it looks better (more accurate) now.
