This one roars. You get your ping playing closer to the bell, but there is still a roar that brews from playing it. I want to play a kit with a 20” floor tom when I play this cymbal! I do have a gong bass set up as a floor tom on one kit.Welcome to the club! I had the house to myself earlier and was seeing how loud I could get mine. Pretty amazing how well it crashes, even at that size. I want a whole set of GBs now.
That is a very good question. Admittedly, my 26” GB would NEVER be in a rehearsal room. I play with L80 cymbals in rehearsals. I rehearse with very quiet things. When I set up my rehearsal space, guitars go through my Eleven rack and bass with a direct pedal into the PA. Rehearsal is not the place to get loud. The only place I would do loud rehearsal would be if the VFW hall I am playing would let us do sound check the morning before the gig.Just out of curiosity. Does anyone of you guys that own 26-30" ride cymbals play them with a band? What do your bandmates have to say about these giant cymbals? Don't they drown out any other instruments in the rehearsal room?
There will be limitations to a 26” GB, but why do I have a feeling that making it versatile will be my newest challenge?My drumming all takes place in my office in my house--I've only ever played guitar in bands. But having been at home for most of the past six months and playing mostly drums in that time, I feel like I've practiced enough to confidently play drums in a band now, and said hypothetical band would definitely be of the Ampeg 8x10 and Marshall half-stack variety, where the 26" GB could do its loudest and nastiest work. But I think it could still do quiet practice, and even jazz--it'll spang-a-lang fine if you tell it to.
Why didn’t I think of that?!? I have two Campy wheel bags in my garage. One is holding a rare and UCI illegal Spinergy Rev-X wheel. The other has a shallow section unbuilt rim.I have a 26" Agop Sig that I just love. I bought it for the sound, not the novelty. I also have a Soultone that I traded for. I'd show you pictures but I can't take them out without knocking something over.
Inevitably someone will ask, so I'll just post this here: https://www.amazon.com/bicycle-wheel-bag/s?k=bicycle+wheel+bag
It's a less exciting revelation now that you can get big bags from Cymbalsonly.com. But I was psyched when I found them.Why didn’t I think of that?!? I have two Campy wheel bags in my garage. One is holding a rare and UCI illegal Spinergy Rev-X wheel. The other has a shallow section unbuilt rim.
