    Help me learn how to do this twirl

    At 0:45 Sonny Payne does a twirl right into a cymbal crash. I'd like to learn the mechanics of that twirl so I can practice it: I'm not even sure exactly how he's doing the twirl part. But I'm hoping some of you out there are good twirlers and can show me!

    Trio Volume 2 CD is #28 on the jazz charts (now #21)

    Looks like we may have peaked at #28 last week. Not quite as high as volume #1, but not bad. We got a lot of airplay in Denton, Boston, Grand Rapids, Toledo, Cheney, and Sacramento.

    SOLD -- 14-1/4" Avedis Zildjian Trans Stamp

    14-1/4" Avedis Zildjian Trans Stamp, 1172g. $150 + shipping Probably a bottom hi hat... it's fairly heavy. Beautiful hammering and patina. Presumably 1940s-1950s. Odd size - if you have an oversize 14 that needs a partner, or if you want to do the Max Roach thing and have a slightly larger...

    looking for low-pitched but not too trashy 20" jazz ride

    Any suggestions for which modern cymbals fit this description? 20", low-pitched, but not too trashy. Also preferably not too heavy, i.e., something pretty but not pingy - some wash is nice. For use in jazz combo. Low-pitched easy to find in a 22, but I'd like to find it in a 20. Ideas?

    MMO for demo-ing cymbals?

    I have several cymbals I wish to sell, and I'd like to make some decent videos for them. I have good mics, but I don't have any music-minus-one to play along to. Just a minute of something swingy (jazz) to give people an idea of what they'd sound like in context. What do people here use? Are...

    Uzuiriope -- anyone else here ever use one? [major necro-bump]

    I have a pair of old 12" hi hat cymbals labeled "Stanople - Uzuiriope". I also have a 10" splash of the same brand. The hi hats are rather heavy, the splash is thin. They have a distinctive shape and color, and cool heavy hand hammering. Rob Scott's site says they were Italian and...
