So, my wife and I have a gigging night off, and we are sitting in a bar in a very small midwestern town, and I compliment the drummer on his ride cymbal. It sounds very washy but with a great stick too. Turns out it’s a Zildjian ZBT Scimitar. Really. I am admittedly a little gobsmacked. It goes to show: we can find good ones everywhere, and the player matters.
