Flat rides had been on my radar for the last couple months. I had narrowed it down to the 20" Zildjian K light flat ride and the Paiste. I stopped by Maxwell's in Illinois Saturday to have them re-lathe some 15", 70's Zildjian hi hats that were very close in weight. So I start perusing the shop and there it was. I immediately set it up and I couldn't stop playing the thing. The stick response on these is incredible and the controlled but expressive sound just left my mouth agape. I'm really going to enjoy this one!

Congrats! That is my favorite flat. Normally I prefer more complex cymbals, and I’m not fond of Paiste’s super clean sounds; but for a flat ride, their formula is absolutely perfect.

That. to my ears, is the definitive flat. I have an 18" 602, which started the ball rolling back when, but I prefer the sound of this.

Congratulations!
