    well..broke down and bought the Avedis 21" ride..very nice sounding..was going to sell my custom K hybred..had a buyer he backed out..so I am keeping it..just in case I get to play hard rock playing once again..the Avedis will work out for the smaller venues I will most likely play in my retirement.
    Enjoy the Music!

    New to me cym. day. I picked up a 17" K Custom Dark Crash, and 20" K Ride (block letters) today. They've been on lay away for a couple of months. I already have an 18" K Dark Med. Thin (new style) and the 17 goes with it pretty good, but I think I like my Paiste 18 Sig. Full Crash with the 17 the best. That Paiste has been with me for over 25Yr. The ride sounds similar to my 20" HH (with cursive writing) Med. Ride, but the K has more stick definition. They both have good bells, and are not crashable.

    Really nice cymbals Lefty.

    I have the 18" K Dark Thin Crash and it is a wonderful cymbal. I currently have it paired with an 18" A Custom crash and like your 18" Paiste, the two sound really good together.

    I'm also on the lookout for a 20" K ride cymbal myself but haven't found "the one" yet ...

    Thanks. My ride was 180 at our local MidWest Drum store. That's about what some are going for on ebay. I got my HH off ebay for 80. No one else bid on it. Keep looking and the right one will show up.

    Zildjian K limited edition. I've never heard of these before. I went to rehearse with my old band,(I'm playing a party for them one last time) and they were trying out a drummer that I'd recommended. He had a set of Zildjian K limited edition reversible hi-hats. They had a hybrid k custom finish with limited edition written in cursive, and the big K. That's all they said on them. I got to play them for about an hour. They sounded pretty darn good. I hope my new beats are gonna keep me happy, now that I've played these Ks. Has anyone else played these Ks yet?

    Lefty --- I sold my 14" A Zildjian traditional hats (1973 vintage) and bought a pair of 13" Ks years ago.
    Best sounding hats I ever heard and I won't use anything else..............I am not familiar with the limited version.

    I talked to the guy again and he said they were developed in conjunction with Akira Jimbo. I've almost always used new beats. My first set was 15" thrown together. The bottom I got around 1972 it was my only good cym. and it sounded terrible. I was told by another drummer that it was a hi hat cym. In 78 I took it to a store and they said it looked like a new beat bottom. So I ordered a top new beat to go with it. Played them for many yrs. I got another set of 15s around 2000, they weren't the same at all. Cracked the top and cut them down to 14". Then a few yrs ago I traded an old "A" 18 crash for a set of new beats from 2010. I like them a lot. My thrown together 15s were really great. I remember it took me a long time to learn how to get use to them. Going from Ludwig Standard Paiste hats to those was quite a change. Those hats were really light and cheap. Ahh the good old days.

    I've been using a 22" A Custom Ping Ride for several years but decided to try something with a little more warmth. I looked at the Paiste 602 Modern Player and the Sabian AAX Omni but wound up choosing a 22" K Custom Dark. When I was young I thought the K's were too jazzy/washy but now I really like them and think they're incredibly versatile.

    Congrats on your new K. I'm really liking mine. The 20" K ride sounds real nice with the country band I'm in right now. I'm using the K custom dark 17 also. Not sure about the 18" K med. thin dark. I think I like my old Sig. full crash better with the 17 K custom. I've had the Sig. since 91.

    I'm really enjoying the sounds I'm getting from the K Custom Dark cymbals. I took it on the "chin" when I brought these guys home without passing it by the wife but the 14 hats, 16, 18 crash and 20" dry ride is all I need now!
