  1. Re: Sabian HHX Evolution hi hats versus Paiste Rude 14" Hi hats

    The HHX Evolution series as a whole is extremely versatile. It really depends on what the rest of your cymbals are and what music you'd like to play the most. There's a pretty big difference between...

    Re: What new gear would you like to see created?

    There are some things that were discontinued I'd like to see come back if only because I don't own them and hate waiting around for them to show up used, lol.

    Re: Metal vs wood

    I normally prefer wood, however I recently bought a Tama 14" SLP Super Aluminum snare and with an Aquarian Coated FocusX batter it sounds very much like a wood snare except with a bit more attack and...

    Re: ZXT Transformer 14"

    Yep, he uses the Zildjian FX Oriental China Trash cymbals on top, and puts a 10" or 14" Trashformer below.

    Re: Unusual Hi-Hat Combinations

    The Meinl Benny Greb Trash Hats are more unusual... 12" splash over a 14" china.
    Also the various effect hi-hats with holes in them (Istanbul Xist Ion, Paiste PST X.)
    I've tried 20" rides as hats,...

    Re: Humes & Berg Bag Review

    Have you tried the Ahead version? I own one and love it. It would cost you more than you paid for this bag, though...great deal!

    Re: Tama S.L.P. Bubinga Snare

    The S.L.P. series really is awesome and a great value. I'm glad more people are trying these out.

    Re: ZXT Transformer 14"

    They have a unique trash splash type sound on their own. When stacked they are supposed to work with virtually any cymbal, but I have found very few combinations that sound good to my ears, at least...

    Sticky: Re: The Church Drummers Thread

    I would say an actual wooden one would blend better. Grover's are nice and warm sounding although the mounting options are more limiting. LP Groove Blocks are good too, a bit brighter and higher,...

    Re: Gibraltar GCS-400 Chrome Road Rack Review

    There are online stores that do have rack memory locks, just in case you need more. I always buy the hinged design, whether for a stand or rack tube. They work so much easier.

    While I haven't had any problems getting parts I've needed from them, I have noticed that many sites have either raised prices significantly or dropped them.

    Re: Apparently I had a fever....

    Yes, just like that except where the cymbal post is, there's a percussion rod. Some allow you to adjust the height of the rod as well so if you need to mount something low, it won't get in the way of...

    Re: First project of 2017 completed!

    Wuhans are great cymbals to experiment on, because they're made of nicer metal and they're cheap! Glad it worked out!
    Just be careful not to smash it a lot. If it was already extra thin to begin...

    Re: Apparently I had a fever....

    Agreed with not mounting the cowbell on the bass drum hoop.
    There are percussion boom arms as well. The advantage with those instead of using a cymbal boom arm is the surface is more rough and will...

    Re: Hats

    Agreed with the Kasza recommendation. I have owned the 14" Fusion series hi-hats, and they were awesome, easily equal to pro-level Zildjian, Sabian, etc models.
    I haven't played the rock hats but...

    Re: Zildjian A Custom VS Sabian AAX?

    I personally think the AAX line sounds better and also has more options. They're still bright overall, but to me a lot of them also have a warmer sound.

    Yamaha makes excellent light hardware, both single and double-braced. I am also happy with Tama's Stagemaster stuff.

    I have not, however if you want the best standard orchestral triangle sound, Alan Abel is the way to go. There are many other brands and models with more overtones, but this is probably the most used...

    Re: Decent entry level crashes?

    Don't bother with the machine-made ZBT, B8, etc. Check out the Chinese brands, they are sometimes cheaper too. Wuhan, Kasza, CRX, Dream...as well as Sabian's SR2 line. Also check the used market.

    Re: Help me decide on a 16" Sabian crash

    The Studio crashes do have a bit of volume despite their name. Obviously not as loud as some others, but they're not quiet either, and also not overly thin. At least not the ones I've played (16" and...

    I have a friend using an AAX 17" Studio Crash as his only crash and it works fine. 16" cymbals will generally have a higher pitch than an 18", but not always. You should definitely go try some out if...
