    (SOLD) Zildjian 20" A Take Five Reissue Ride (2166g)

    Hello all, Traded this cymbal with another DFO member. These reissues surely have a vibe, but I found myself not using it as much as all the other cymbals I have. (Which, if you know me, it's a lot of them!) Edit: SOLD!

    Istanbul Agop Traditional Jazz Series (VIDEO)

    There was a recent thread about the new Istanbul Agop Traditional Jazz series cymbals and I managed to buy a set from Memphis Drum Shop when they were released a couple of weeks ago. I made a video showcasing these great cymbals with one of John Riley's great play-a-longs. Enjoy!

    [SOLD] Zildjian 21" K Custom Special Dry Ride (2287g)

    Hi all, I bought this cymbal this summer. Because of the pandemic, I've hardly played it and it's been sitting in the bag... it's never been out of the house! It's a great example of the newer Special Dry cymbals: dark, dry, and versatile for a variety of musical situations. It's only been...

    [SOLD] Pearl 6.5"x14" Modern Utility Beaded Steel Snare Drum (w/ Upgrades!)

    The Modern Utility series from Pearl set the benchmark for well built, affordable snare drums. This one is made even better with numerous upgrades that transform this drum into a semi-professional or professional model. The 6.5" steel beaded shell is bright and cutting but still has plenty of...

    [SOLD] Ottaviano 22" Paper Thin Ride (2075g) – Old K vibes!

    I'm probably going to regret this one... I traded @tischrealdrum for this cymbal a couple of months ago, and I love the way it sounds. I just have too many 22's that I use to justify keeping this one, and I always believe someone should own an instrument they'll be playing all the time. This...

    [TRADED] Funch 20" Overhammered Ride (1719g)

    I bought a Funch last month and a couple of days ago it finally arrived. This is a beautiful sounding cymbal, but unfortunately for me, it sounds too much like the cymbal I was trying to pair it with, and am looking for something else to contrast it. It's very dark and soft and has an amazing...

    [SOLD] Zildjian 18" 1960s A Crash/Ride

    Hi all, Here's another one I'm thinning out. It's a beautiful 60s era Zildjian A. It weighs 1468g and makes a beautiful crash/ride; a nice mellow crash, but plenty of stick definition for riding. There is a slight keyhole (check the photos) but has no impact on sound quality. It's also drilled...

    Meinl 24” R&D Concept Model (Foundry Reserve Thin Ride)

    Hey guys, I wanted to share one of my recent acquisitions that’s pretty unique. I came across a bunch of Meinl prototypes on Reverb from Badges Drum Shop in Ohio and this one definitely stood out to me. It’s based on the Foundry Reserve series, but this particular cymbal is thinner than most...

    [SOLD] Istanbul Agop 20" OM Crash (1750g) Like New!

    Thinning out some more cymbals. Here's a great sounding Istanbul Agop 20" OM Crash. I barely played this one – I don't think it's even left the house for a gig. This one makes a great crash/ride. Opens up beautifully but also has enough stick definition to use as a left side or light ride...

It's called Click Theory 2.0, an expansion of the concept of using the metronome in different ways, displacing it to different parts of the beat and using the metronome to create...
