Who are the drummers that you think get the most out of their cymbals? Are there any particular drummers that you learned some technique to express yourselves through the use of the cymbals? We tend to look at drummers through the actual drums, but never judge or analyze their approach to cymbal playing..
Is this even a legitimate question?

I never knew "cymbal player" was a thing.

Are they called Cymbalists??? Cymbalers???

I'm so confused...
