Re: Test Driving Cymbals
I agree to buy with your ears. I try to ignore the brand, material and price tag and just use my ears. Even if a cymbal is more than I can afford, I still listen to it for comparison. When I bought my main ride cymbal, I walked in the store intending to spend several hundred bucks on a new Paiste. I left with a well used Sabian (unknown series) for about $45. It had the sound I wanted....and I bought a nice Mapex boom stand to go with it. Win-win.

Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!
"I think that feeling is a lot more important than technique. It's all very well doing a triple paradiddle - but who's going to know you've done it? If you play technically you sound like everybody else. It's being original that counts." ~ John Bonham
