    Jazz Beginner and Hi Hat Size and Weight?

    Hello Community, I am brand new to drumming. I am interested in learning to play drums for jazz fusion and folk rock. With jazz fusion being top of mind at the moment, I am trying to hone in on the right hi hat size and weight. My drum set is quite small: a Tama Club Jam Mini--just a bass drum...

    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?

    Just landed in LA. Suggestions?

    I've been here quite a few times, but never checked out any music stores. Any suggestions for a good selection on cymbals (looking Paiste) I'm curious to see the difference, if any between NY, and LA.

    Interesting hi hats at a church I was at.

    I was at a local church for a Boy Scouts meeting and I saw a set of Pearl hi hats that appeared to be made out of B8 bronze. I thought that Pearl only ever made those cheap brass cymbals that come with drumsets so I found this interesting.

    Love/Hate Cymbal Relationships

    Do you have a cymbal that you both hated and loved at different times? I love it when you go from not liking a cymbal to really loving it once you get to know it better. But sometimes the opposite happens and you may end up disliking a cymbal that you thought you'd love forever. Has this...
