Re: Cheap gear isn't always cheap
I'm addicted to my Wuhans. Once you get used to that dark, full pallet of overtones with a slightly trashy tinge, they really grow on you. They have character. Normal cymbals almost start to sound boring. The more you beat them, the smoother they sound....and in the live mix of a band they sound great. So far, I have the 10"&12" splashes, 14" thin crash, 14"med crash, 16"med crash, 16"China and 18" crash/ride. I still want to get their 20" med-heavy ride. I did buy a used Zildjian A 18" ride, but I only used it once and went back to the Wuhan. So.....I guess the next gig I'll be playing a Sound Percussion drum kit and hardware with Wuhan cymbals and leaving the PDP's, Paistes and Zildjians at home, LOL. At least if the bar catches fire and all my equipment is destroyed I'm only out about $300....but if I can then avoid paying my bar tab, I should break even!

"Too many crappy used drum stuff to list"
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
