Man these Dark Classic Customs sound great. I just played a set of hats at the drum center and they were awesome. I am seriously thinking of buying the whole 4 pc set ( 20" 18"16" and 14 hats) for $500. Woodshed do you still have your crash? Is the black paint fading at all?
Plus Benny Greb makes em sound soooooo nice.

Premier Elite Black Sparkle
Zildjian K Cymbals
Decide whether this is love for the craft or simply an ego thing.
MOST ORCHESTRA'S ARE JUST 1800'S COVER BANDS!
I have the same cymbals, plus a 21" crash ride. I will be buying a 19" or 20" crash shortly too. I need more big cymbals to balance the drums for the right look.
I like the hats. They are a chunky rock sound, not Shaft hissy.
But the reason I bought them was because they were black – yeah superficial.
They sounded good and they weren't shiny bronze that would clash with my black diamond pearl finish.
The black isn't paint it's some kind of oxidation or anodized finish.
They could leave them jet black for me and save all the selective lathing.
When I get famous i'll have them do that custom
And mine haven't chipped, but I'm not an extremely hard hitter.
Damn, those sound good.....but, it's Benny Greb. He can make anything sound good (great vid of him rocking a SpongeBob kids set).
