So I bought the 19 from Sweetwater. I get home from traveling for Thanksgiving and the 19 has been delivered. It’s in a box three times too large in just a plastic sleeve with one piece of bubble wrap. Needless to say the edge now has nicks. I expect that kind of poor packing from Amazon, but not Sweetwater. Fortunately, Sweetwater is good about returns, but come on don’t tell me a one of the largest instrument stores in the US can’t properly pack and ship a 19 crash cymbal. Sigh.
The Sig fasts are very nice cymbals. I actually sort of like the Fulls myself. I had a few at one point, but I’m basically a Zildjian man and it didn’t make sense to have another set of another brand, etc. so I’m back to Ks and so on.
