i have been drumming for 6 years now and i play mainly Rock, Punk and funk. I have finally decided i cannot deal with my cymbals and so i am mainly looking at crashes and hihats.( i can deal with the sound of my ride)
I currently have a four cymbal setup being planet z 14" hihats, 16" crash and a 20" ride, i also have another unmarked 16" crash which i like the sound of and am not looking to replace.
I play quite hard but over the whole amount of time i have only dented my crash and cracked a hihat i once used as a crash
I have been looking at an 18" A custom projection crash, which i have played and really like which i can obtain secondhand from between $150-200. but i have been looking around and i have seen a 16" Z custom crash for a similar price. can anyone compare or give me some other ideas.
Also for the hihats my drum teacher used to have some k custom hihats which i really liked except they are really expensive and harder to find second hand. another idea was the KZ hihats set, is it any good? any other ideas?
i don't like the 14" A custom projection hats so i don't see the point buying a projection set. can anyone suggest anything???
