    Re: Best cymbal sounds

    By far the best sounding cymbals (and drums) in a module are going to be in the 2Box DrumIt line. This is because the sounds are 100% rewriteable. I've recorded dozens of cymbals already to load into...

    Re: sit down cajon vs. slap top cajon

    The Meinl Slap Top Cajons will have less bass, and a more snappy sound. However, there are several varieties of this drum. The Hybrid Slap Top sounds like bongos with snares; the others do have a...

    Re: My unpopular opinion of Ozone crashes

    Meinl and Bosphorus make the best ozone-style cymbals in my opinion. The Byzance Dual and Vintage Trash Crashes are fantastic and they are super versatile, I've even heard them used as main crashes....

    Re: Small Crashes Anyone?

    Rather than size I am more concerned about weight, a 20" super thin crash will probably still be quieter than a 16" heavy bright one.

    Although while on the subject of small cymbals, I came across...

    Re: Upside down China with rivets

    It won't sound as nice. Play the china whichever way the rivet heads are actually touching the cymbal, not hanging down. I prefer them to be bell-up for this, if I install rivets to one.

    Re: Dream cymbal recycling program

    I do a variation of this. Lone Star Percussion pays $2 per inch for B20 cymbals and $1 for B8. You can use the value to buy any new cymbal, not just from Dream. The only catch is you can only use up...

    Re: Decent Jazz ride?

    If you want a thin, dark, washy ride for fairly cheap, look at Dream. Specifically the Bliss series. They are all unique so I wouldn't order one without hearing an exact demo, but there are some...

    Re: More cymbals on the way

    SR2's are extremely variable, there are probably some out there with the sound you want but it can be impossible to go through a big stack of them to find the perfect ones.

    Too bad about your...

    Re: Sabian Chopper: Anyone have one?

    I owned the 8" for a while. It's a cool piece. I think it's way over priced, and there are other crashers that are much cheaper. These are also very heavy, which isn't a big deal on its own but in a...
  11. Re: Sabian HHX Evolution hi hats versus Paiste Rude 14" Hi hats

    The HHX Evolution series as a whole is extremely versatile. It really depends on what the rest of your cymbals are and what music you'd like to play the most. There's a pretty big difference between...

    There are some things that were discontinued I'd like to see come back if only because I don't own them and hate waiting around for them to show up used, lol.

    Yep, he uses the Zildjian FX Oriental China Trash cymbals on top, and puts a 10" or 14" Trashformer below.

    Re: Unusual Hi-Hat Combinations

    The Meinl Benny Greb Trash Hats are more unusual... 12" splash over a 14" china.
    Also the various effect hi-hats with holes in them (Istanbul Xist Ion, Paiste PST X.)
    I've tried 20" rides as hats,...

    Re: Gibraltar GCS-400 Chrome Road Rack Review

    There are online stores that do have rack memory locks, just in case you need more. I always buy the hinged design, whether for a stand or rack tube. They work so much easier.

    Yes, just like that except where the cymbal post is, there's a percussion rod. Some allow you to adjust the height of the rod as well so if you need to mount something low, it won't get in the way of...

    Agreed with not mounting the cowbell on the bass drum hoop.
    There are percussion boom arms as well. The advantage with those instead of using a cymbal boom arm is the surface is more rough and will...
