So after selling off a bunch of mismatched cymbals that I had, I'm shopping for another cymbal set. I went from Sabian years ago (which I loved) to trying out Paiste. I didn't like the really musical sound of the Paiste's. I like a darker sound that's less controlled. I lasted with them a couple of months. I then took the Turkish route but I guess never warmed up to the fact that they don't always work together. I also attempted the Zildjian K custom darks and they seem slightly inconsistent and the quality just wasn't there. They seemed pretty rough. I think a nice matched cymbal set will be a good thing. The only thing I hear that I seem to like from Paiste are the Black 2002 Big Beats but I don't like the ride sound since it lack's a defined bell. So after searching and searching I think I'll be back to Sabian (yes the new ones with the ugly logo!) Good thing the logo's are on the underside! From what I have heard in soundfiles, they sound really great and much better than the old lines. I'm stuck between AAX & HHX and that's what I need to decide on. They both seem like a match, same quality but one's slightly darker than the other one. It's really hard to choose. I mostly play all kinds of rock so both would work. I'm starting out with a nice cymbal pack and working up from there. I know some of these can be mixed but I need to decide which pack I will buy (AAX or HHX) as the starting point. Let me know what you think!
