Thanks Gee. This pic should pretty much sum up everything you just said perfectly.I'm not a Paiste fan, but, man, those two rides just sound lovely. Way too much sustain after they are struck for my tastes (and yes, I know how the camera compression is affecting the audio), but the tonal spread is delicious. The only thing that saves me from going down the Paiste rabbit hole is the price. Never in my wildest dreams could I afford to buy a set of the upper end Paistes. Good luck on your sales!
