I use Paiste 602 and 2002/RUDE/Giant Beat. I just love the sound and feel.I've been in a cymbal listening mood lately. So what I've done is sit an listen to video's and sound files of different brands and different lines just to hear all the sound differences of what's available out there. I'm not talking about mixing brands and/or model lines like a lot of us do. (I mix and rotate 3 different brand and a variety of lines within each brand). I'm talking about "one specific brand and line" that you would set up on one kit to make up a whole cymbal setup that would cover all or most bases. And of course, it's gotta be the one that sounds best to you compared to anything else that's out there. As a kid I started on cheap beginner Camber cymbals, moved up to Sabian B8 & B8 pro in the late 80's then I went with Sabian AA's and some HH in the 90's and when I came back to drumming a few years ago I ventured into Paiste 900's. So now I'm currently on a Turkish/Italian mix of Mehmet's, Soultone & UFIP's. The brand I think I've always ignored for some reason is Zildjian. Maybe it was the big Z logo that reminded me of Zorro or the name or the fact that I saw them everywhere (including t-shirts) and I just wanted to be different as I was growing up. Who know's! But man, in this listening quest I've heard Zildjian in the mixes and the sound of the K series has me thinking that they are probably the best & most complete single series that I've heard up to now. (The Paiste Signature & Big Beat's are a close second) Note: I'm not listening to anything vintage, just new stuff. Anyways, what do you think and what do your ears like the best when it comes to this comparison?
