Actually I did try that exact combo a few months ago! It was just too brash for my purposes. But if someone is looking for more cut through a loud band, that would be a great choice.I've thrown my 15" 50's Zildjian A hi-hat top over my black label 15" 2002 SE bottom before, which is a COOL combo. Sounds like you've found what you were looking for, but give that combination a run just for the hell of it. Worth the fun!
