    Cleaning some older 2002s

    Just aquired a few Paiste 2002s, a 22 ride, a 20" crash and a 14' crash. They've spent a lot of time in the basement and need to be cleaned up a bit. Been a Zildjian guy all my life so I'm ignorant in the care and cleaning of 2002 cymbals. What do you Paiste guys use?

    Do Cymbals really go bad?

    Ive only owned one cymbal that, to my ears, began to sound less musical, an A Custom 17 crash. I think its lost some of its shimmer. It does make an interesting top hi hat cymbal now, paired with something heavier like a K med crash.

    14x20, 14x18, or BOTH!!! *UPDATE*

    I vote for the 18. If you are going to be using the 18 for the same basic styles you'd use a 22 for, you may want to consider an 18x16. I have both the 18x14 and 18x16 and find that the slightly deeper 18 has a bit more umpff. More useful if I'm looking for that rock thud, just quieter.

    What are using to suspend you Tom on a snare stand?

    Booty Shakers do it for me. Just spent the week playing a beautiful rentedl Yamaha Absolute Maple kit. I asked for the rack tom to be mounted in a snare stand as I don't like the Yamaha mount system. No Booty Shakers available and I really noticed the loss of sustain. The drum sounded good, but...

    Timbales in the rack tom position

    Just used this recently. 12" Tama drum set timbale, Black Onyx head tuned way down muffled with some gaff tape, a 16" Premier birch floor tom, Dunnett 13" SS snare and a 26"x10" Ludwig kick. Really fun to play and made me very conscious of how I voiced my fills. Big fun with this "Franken-kit"!

    Your Opinion on Resonant Floor Tom Feet... Worth The Upgrade?

    I'm a fan of the Booty Shakers. They work exceptionally well. The difference they make is well worth the extra effort of putting them on and taking them off the floor tom legs.
