    Re: Restored 1976 rare floor tom.

    Nice............and a blue/olive badge dates it too.
    I've played an 18FT many years -- although I love it, it is the most difficult drum (to tune) in my set -- a 20 would be a fun experiment....

    Re: Small Crashes Anyone?

    I prefer the smaller crash cymbals 14, 15, and 16.
    I have a number of 16 inch crashes that are all a bit different and sound great.
    The K Zildjian thins and medium-thins are outstanding.
