He's back. Alan is offering drum lessons for one day at Don Bennett Drum Studio in Bellevue WA. I got the e-mail a few hours ago & booked the last one hour session! I'm looking forward to meeting Alan and learning what he's sharing. Wow!
What is your ideal weight for a 22” ride cymbal? I found that 2500 grams hits the sweet spot for me. Just enough wash, ping, crash with my lower pitch preference. I’ve been trying out Zildjian cymbals and they seem to have a pretty wide spread of weight within the same line.
I've seen these from brand new cymbals, both Zildjian and Paiste. I sold one like yours and provided a picture of the nick and it was small enough that the buyer didn't object. As long as it's not too big and if it sounds good I wouldn't worry about it. I don't know if they come from the...

Pick up both & send back the one that doesn't make the cut. Most shops have a 30-45 day return policy. That was the only way I got my set up dialed in. Yea, I spent $ on shipping but ohh what fun it was to play and explore my preferences. I'm going to try the 22" ME crash next. After...
Thanks for the update & your perspective. The same can be said for the 20" ME crash - very versatile cymbal as you say. I'm going to audition the the ME 20" ride next week to see how well it crash/rides (!)
I was stating from scratch and wasn't focused on cost (although it was way too much $), auditioned just about all lines except for standard new 602's and after 8 months of trial and error. Ended up with a complete 602 ME setup.
Bright minds think alike. I'm going to try 13" & 16" ambassador x heads as an alternative to my Evans EC2 heads. Should sound different (better?) with my birch Sonor SQ1 set up. Not sure how it will turn out but Nicko from Iron Maiden likes A x's and Sonor Tom's :)
