Zildjian K Custom Dark Crash 16" (1100g)
A nice dark, shimmery crash with good body. Also great for use with a 16" hi-hat pair. Slight bit of sticker residue under bell but great shape otherwise.
$175 + ship
Selling a factory set of 15" Kerope Hats.
(The 15" K Dark Thin Crash that was previously also listed here has sold separately.)
These are at a nice weighting of 942g/1184g. Light enough to feel like thin hats but enough meat on the bone to project. Beautiful warm, sweet tone and very...
(I'm not posting this under Audio Files because this isn't so much a demo as, hopefully, a topic for some conversation.)
I'm very curious to hear some impressions of this cymbal. This is a recording to a drumless backing track, followed by the cymbal by itself.
Do you like it? Not? Do you...
I picked up a set of really sweet old A. 14" hats at a local store recently for a nice price. They are roughly 700g/800g.
Trying to ID the stamp. This looks like late-'50s small to me. The "Zildjian" measures about 7/8" across.
Thanks a lot.
I see today that Ludwig is apparently releasing a new line of USA "Acro" snares with brass and copper shells...basically, Acrolites with those shells.
Not sure how I feel. Kinda cool on paper, even though, to me, Acro means aluminum alloy.
The 6.5 models have 10 lugs.
I'm thinking of trying a coated Dip batter over clear Dip on my SSB 12". I've never used Diplomat batters.
I'm currently using coated Amb/clear Amb, and it does sound great, of course. Lately, though, I've been wanting to hear a little more sprite and overtones out of that drum. I get...
Ludwig folks, you brought out an 8-lug Black Beauty. Totally took us (well, me, at least) by surprise. What a COOL drum! And so great to see you acknowledge the value of the 8-lug design for a high-end drum.
PLEASE now do the right thing and bring out an 8-lug 6.5" Acrolite, and fulfill the...
Just curious about folks' opinions on this matter.
Recently picked up a 15" K Dark Thin Crash (883g according to seller) to pair up/use in combo with my 15" Keropes (960g/1120g).
I'm basically looking for the option of having a real vibey, splashy, thin-but-dark hat sound for jazz, '70s-ish...
I've decided to let my amazing Gretsch USA Bronze 6.5 snare go in the search for a couple of other items.
This is an incredible-sounding, real musical bronze drum and it's in mint, original condition (other than some wear on the batter head).
I'll take $425 shipped.
This is my listing on...
A few years ago, I picked a WFL Supreme Concert (6-lugs) snare in the search for a drum with a strong, inherent "woody" tone. Well, this drum did not disappoint. Within the first few hits, I was just amazed at the warm, round, deep tone of this drum.
Eventually, I decided I wanted just a little...
Did Rogers ever make an aluminum snare, something to compete with the Acrolite and similar from Slingerland and Gretsch?
I don't believe I've ever seen one. Seems like they weren't really in the "lower-end" game.
Any drummers out there living and working right in L.A.? Can you describe what life is currently like there as a working player? Are there particular "scenes" around specific music in different places? How are audiences? Been curious for a long time.
Thanks a lot.
Does anyone own a ride (or crash/ride) that is on the heavy side but also legitimately low-pitched and dark? If so, what is the model and what are the design characteristics?
Doing some research. Thanks a lot.
In my search for the 22 sound in my head, I have come up with a few suggestions for Zildjian that might fill some gaps (IMO) in the lineup of regular Ks.
This is also based on the premise that 22" is an all-around great, versatile cymbal size.
1. Please bring back the basic 22" K Crash/Ride in...
