Agreed! But that development is usually based on experimentation. Cymbalwise there are 2 ways to go:"Develop your own style is all i'm saying...sooner or later that's all you got will ever have..(and be happy about it (lol
Ok.Fair enough! OK Joe, What one brand/line do you consider to be the best sounding today?
Custom made question just for you!
I didn't ever mention this as a survey. This is simply an exercise comparing what I'm liking right now soundwise "Zildjian K's" vs. what everyone else likes. Cymbal tastes & application for those cymbals is very personal. It's a topic that I would never get opinions on for my cymbal purchases. To begin with that's why I have "for now" a mix and match of different brands and lines.why else would he be asking..
a)Taking a survey
b) lonely and need another drummer to talk to
c) I'm out of options
It's called lighting the fuse walking away then not claiming the responsibility when it explodes
or is a dud.
I own full setups of Zildjian As, Ks, K Customs, and K Costantinoples, I too use my K Constantinoples for almost every situation.I tend to think in terms of lines. My favorite line from any brand is the Zildjian K Constantinople line. I'm mostly using what used to be my "jazz" set of cymbals for everything these days: 22" Overhammered Bounce, 19" Crash Ride, 14" Hi Hat. I'll be adding a few things like crashes and a 22" MTL or Medium. I can do anything with that lineup.
My opinion would be like "French" or a foreign language to you.
Everyone derives.. then shapes their own
Drums are a very individual business..maybe the most out of all the Instruments..
never been, never will be unanimous consent
Look inward not outward for direction
Yes they came in 24s Only in the late later years; 1967 on..All old Ks? Wow, what a stunning collection! And the "family tree" pics are perfect! How big are the back rides? It's hard for me to judge but they look at least 22's if not even 24's! Though I don't even know if old K's came in 24's... did they?
LOL! That's what I figured!L-rod survey says : Meinl
I had straight AA's back in the 90's. They were my first "pro" level cymbals and I loved them. I still think they sound fantastic. Pricewise for a B20 cymbal, they can't be beat. When I got back to drumming a few years ago I was really considering them.
