Paul’s enthusiasm is sorely missed. One of the more stranger things I’ve seen in the industry.

I'd like to teach the world to sing blah blah blah did wonders for coca cola sales way back when . they weren't selling a soft drink .... really ? zildjian has swollen the ranks of the real thing . wunnerful wunnerful. if only pontiac and oldsmobile had woken up, they may not have missed the chance to de contaminate themselves .after 30-40 years of playing the same cymbal
Girls just want to have fun,

Bro I saw plenty of color sounds and platinums when I started playing in the late 2000s and still see them to this day. And yes they sound terrible lolMaybe they have been cancelled. Everyone remember how Sabian took a beating with their logo rebrand? A lot of Zildjian artists jumped ship after Lenny Dimuzio left too before Paul and Sarah. People who didn't live in the 80s won't remember the Zildjian platinum or the original paiste colorsound lines because they didn't sound very good and didn't ever seem to catch on. All l know is that great musicians spawn clones. If Vinnie plays Gretsch and Paiste you can bet that millions of wanna be's will run out and buy his gear, clothes, glasses etc. Ringo put Ludwig on the map overnight from a small American company producing a moderate level of drums to having a demand so large that they had over 200 employees. Neil Peart, Stewart Copeland and Cobham did it for Tama. Gadd, Weckl and Vinnie for Yamaha. Elvin, Tony, Max and Blakey for Gretsch. Buddy and Krupa for Slingerland. Most of all those guys played Zildjian too. When Bob Zildjian died Sabian changed. Armand died and Craigie is running things. She is probably a lot more corporate and less personable to the staff and the artists. Who knows? Play what sounds good to you because your ears like it. Vinnie endorsed Yamaha recording customs and maple customs for years and used Gretsch in the studio. Porcaro too. Gadd used a Supraphonic before and after his time at Yamaha. Brand loyalty is great but use your ears and not your eyes when picking out gear.
