The more I hear SCDR's, the more I think I'd never be able to make one sound good...

So you dont like the sound here or do like it?

Remember the scdr is a cymbal that blend with a band...so video file has to be taken with a grain of salt
No man, I think it sounds awesome when you play it. Just sounds like something that would be hard for me to get to sound good. Such an interesting cymbal.

Do you gig it a lot?

Thanks.
Well define a lot?

I play jazz and have slowed down a lot. Things go in seasons

3 gigs this month, 3 next month..1 in December...
Cool thing is 3 of those 7 are concerts....

My best years i was doing 4-6 gigs a month...that was long time ago

My old wedding/party band minimum of 2 a weekend sometimes 3...all year...plus I was playing jazz gigs so probably 100+

Nice video. Cymbals are really cool. I can't believe the SCDR is that expressive, given the weight.
Pretty special cymbal.
Are you playing on a set of Zimgar drums?
It's ok if you are, its just nice to see someone break away from the usual fare of American/modern Japanese drums that usually make the videos.

thanks.

The scdr are expensive because they are rare on two levels

They are sparse..only limited amount made...so hard to find

and rare in that nothing sounds close to them.

Ha ha

Drums Gretsch round badge tuned up high

Zimgar?

Wow. I better tune my drums better. Zimgar was a 1960s cheap pearl japanese stencil kit

Ouch

Regarding price...

Zen can give you averages.

Ive owned and sold a ton of these.

Imo,which you might say is "professional " I think $500-$650 is fair.
Under $500 is a good deal
Over $750 for a mint,un-used one

To me nything Over $700 is ....ridiculous. thats just my opinion....

Zen has average prices. I could be wrong/off. But i dont think so

If you want one be patient
Ive bought a few for under $500!
