    I'm in Europe so Meinl are priced very similarly to Zildian and Sabian. My problem is choosing a set for myself as there are at least 3/4 sets of each recommendation!

    Re: Looking to upgrade cymbals

    Most seem to use light/medium cymbals and avoid heavy cymbals. Paiste 2002 rides seem to be favored a lot. But other than that opinions are all over the place.

    Re: Which tom should I use?

    At the moment I have them tuned:
    12" to F#
    13" to D
    14" to E (snare)
    16" to A

    Because I tuned them with a drum dial to the same tension. Am I doing this wrong?

    Next up after a full size wooden snare, would be a piccolo. So I might have already found what I need, the 13x7 Tama. I've seen a couple for sale and they are at a very reasonable price.

  19. Re: Best practice solution: Low volume cymbals and heads or electronic kit?

    Yes this is my intention. Here I would have to pay for a used one more than I have to pay to get a new one.
  20. Re: Best practice solution: Low volume cymbals and heads or electronic kit?

    yeah and on top of that, I'd have to pay duty taxes.
  21. Re: Best practice solution: Low volume cymbals and heads or electronic kit?

    I do not think I'm going for low volume cymbals and triggers. Either an electronic kit or a low volume cymbal set.

    The low volume cymbals work, but sound bad?

    Re: Snare drum upgrade

    I have decided to go for a ludwig Acrolite. I am looking for a kit. Even a 3 piece kit is enough for me. A BP kit is sadly beyond my budget.
