    I got a new to me 20" HH med. ride the other day. It's pretty nice. It's a little mellower than my 60's Zild. A. It's got a more pronounce stick sound than the A and less wash. The bell is real good too. It doesn't crash very well, but I expected that. It weighs about 2480 G. I've always used a little tape under the A, this one doesn't need it. I like it, especially considering the price. $92 off of ebay.

    Just ordered and put a down payment on some 14" Evolution hats today... I feel good I wont lie lol

    I was oh so close to ringing through the register some 14" AAX stage hats but had a change of mind and ordered the Evo's. I got a pretty decent deal off of them too.. 40 bucks off. So I paid $369 Canadian instead of $410 (standard retail price across Canada)

    I did good right guys? good choice paying the extra??

    I got a set of B8 Pro's in yesterday and put them on the kit today. They sound nice and should suffice for my style of music. I have a couple of gigs coming up, so I am anxious to see how they sound in a live setting with a full band.

    I got a huge deal on some cymbals,one of which is a sabian AA 20" raw ride. Its unlathed and unlike any other cymbal also I own. It has no wash and is dead as a door nail. Has anyone else played one of these?

    Sweet deal! I got a pair of 13" Evo's and paid $385 USD. I sent them back to Sabian for a factory modification which didn't void my warranty and had them cut two vent holes in the bottom cymbal cup and added 8 rivets to it. The 13" hats are my first at that size and I was leery not having enough volume but with the added rivets, they sound awesome.

    Looking for some info on Vanguards....never played Sabian before (Agops/Bosphorus)...

    I understand they are not classified as 'ride', 'crash', that a 22" crash can be used as a ride. True?
    Are these the former Crescent Vanguards, remastered into the Sabian HH fold?

    I just picked up a couple more Sabians in a trade deal. I've been wanting this 18" HHX Evolution crash for a while, and finally got one! It's as nice as I was hoping. Goes great with my 16" HH thin crash. I also got an 8" HH spash in the deal. It's cute. LOL It's like a cymbal, only smaller. No pics of it yet.

    Yeah, I hear ya there. My AAX crashes are definitely more suited for metal. But I'm definitely loving the tone of the HHX as an all-around crash. I'm going to be on the lookout for more trade deals to try to get more HHX.

    the evolutions are hands down my favorite line of cymbals. The 16 and the 18 were the first cymbals I ever bought when I started drumming. Still have them and use them both!

    Yes these are the former Crescents that have been absorbed into Sabian HH. They're all vintage style crash rides. Those will definitely work for what you're looking for, but might I suggest you check out Dream. Dream also makes vintage style cymbals but for a lot less money. I'd recommend either their Bliss or Vintage Bliss lineups for jazz/light playing.

    HHX 16" Evolution crash
    AAX 16" stage crash
    AAX 18" stage crash
    AA 18" Medium thin crash

    On my practice kit (which is in a small room, I honestly prefer using B8's. I love the way they sound in a small room.

    I purchased a used Yamaha set 5 years ago that came with Sabian B8's. As they were so much better than what I had as a youth I was very happy with them. In fact as I liked them I never really gave them a critical ear. That was until today when a drumming buddy of mine, A Zyldjian fanboy, said I really needed to upgrade my cymbals (to Avedis or K preferably).

    So I sat down and banged away on my cymbals today. Loosening them, repositioning, trying different hits, sticks and giving them a critical ear. Here is what I found:

    20 inch ride - Love it. Great ride, lovely sounding bell and a decent crash. This is an awesome cymbal!
    16 inch crash - Like it a lot. Very nice crash and a very decent bell. A very good crash.
    14 inch hi-hat - Like it. It sounded dull so I played around with it height and different settings. Different strikes. After awhile I got it to sound quite decent.

    So after taking the B8's for granted with a constant thought to upgrading I finally take them seriously and guess what? They are very decent!

    If and when I do upgrade I'm keeping the ride for sure. Might even keep the crash as an add-on. Until then I'll stop listening to the nay-sayers.

    B8s are a very good series for the price. They may not be top of the line, but they sound pretty decent. I still have a pair of 14" hihats. I tried the ride a while ago. I would have to grab it after a few hits because the sound would build up with every hit.
