    Rivet Location

    Hey everyone, I'm looking to install rivets on a 22" Paiste Masters Dark Ride. Does anyone have suggestions on rivet placement? I've considered clustering 2 or 3 rivets at the 1 o'clock position. I also saw Gregory Hutchinson using what I believe is the same cymbal, and he had rivets in the 3...

    mitch mitchell-esque cymbal sound: giant beats or a avedis??

    washy, prominent, cascading sizzles (as per a few rivets) and just overall “lushness” is the vocabulary i would use to describe the cymbal sound of mitch mitchell, and the cymbal sound i want to be able to get. my idea for sizes are 14, 17-18 crash, a 20 inch ride with rivets, and a nice crashy...

    What shipping service is best (reliable/cost efficient) within the US these days? Especially with COVID... I see people ditching USPS left & right.

    I want to start selling and shipping more of my cymbals, drum stuff, and other “junk” I’ve collected over the years. I see eBay has a 200 items listed for free deal ‘til April, so was thinking about that. What about buying online labels from companies like Shippo? Sometimes I deal outside of...

    Sabian 10" HH China Kang - SOLD

    I bought this 10 months ago and used it as part of a stack. I used it in my practice room for a couple of months until I got some new stacks. The cymbal is still in great shape. The only visible sign of wear is the center hole. It has the very early beginnings of keyholing. It’s only slightly...

    SOLD OFF SITE 19" Soultone Gospel Mega Bell Ride

    Had it for a few days and decided it wasn't for me. The bell is exactly what I was looking for (loud and cuts) but the cymbals a bit too high pitch. Someone out there definitely will like it thought! Pictures and more info can be found here...

    Affordable Jazz Cymbals? Zildjian K Alternatives?

    Hi there, I'm new to jazz drumming and I'm looking to get some cymbals, mainly hi-hats and a ride to practice some bebop and swing grooves at home. I love the sound of Zildjian K cymbals, but they're super expensive, even used. I'm not gigging, just playing alone in my room, so I don't need...

    Ludwig Elements Cymbals- Why can I not find any info on these cymbals?

    Hey everybody, I have these cymbals I got when my parents purchased a drum kit for me when I was little. The drum set was a black Ludwig Element Series. Drums are fine, however these cymbals that I got with them are... well to say the least terrible and I upgraded recently to some better...

    Experimenting with old cymbals

    So my question is basically told in the subject. I have 4 cymbals which are pretty cheap and I am not afraid to destroy them. I wanted to ask, if anyone have the experience in this. For example drilling holes, cuting small bells or splashes.. maybe even stacking them on top of themselves?
