    Thumbs up Do You Remember?

    I'm pretty sure I can remember every single cymbal I've ever had and what happened to it. What cymbals have you guys had? Ever?

    In order from first to last?

    Just Kidding. Here's mine. In order of first to last... I think.

    - 14" Pulse Hi-Hat Pair (Given to friend)
    - 16" Pulse Crash (Sold at Garage Sale for $5)
    - 18" Pulse Crash/Ride (Sold at Garage Sale for $5)
    - 10" Paiste PST5 Splash (Cracked)
    - 16" Sabian B8 Crash (Cracked)
    - 18" Sabian B8 Medium Crash (Sold to friend for $20)
    - 8" Sabian B8 Splash (Cracked)
    - 10" Sabian B8 Splash (Given to a friend)
    - 16" Used Zildjian A Custom Crash (Cracked)
    - 13" Used Zildjian A Custom Hi-Hats (Sold for $130 via Ebay)
    - 20" Zildjian A 20" Ping Ride (Traded for...)
    - 20" Zildjian A Custom Ping Ride (Sold for $170 via Ebay)
    - 15" Zildjian A Custom Crash (Eventually Cracked, sent back to Zildjian)
    - 16" Zildjian A Custom Crash (Cracked, returned...)
    - 16" Zildjian A Custom Crash (GREAT cymbal, eventually cracked, sent back to Zildjian)
    - 10" Zildjian A Custom Splash (Still in Use)
    - 8" Zildjian A Custom Splash (Sold for $70 via Ebay)
    - 20" Zildjian K Custom Dry Ride (Sold for $240 via Ebay)
    - 14" Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Hi-Hat Pair (Still in Use)
    - 18" Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash (Still in Use)
    - 20" Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Ride (Still in Use)
    - 17" Zildjian K Custom Dark Crash (Still in Use)
    - 8" K Splash (Still in Use)

    That's it. It's funny because, as you can see, I like to trade cymbals out for other cymbals. The way I was originally able to buy all those Zildjians was...

    Selling my Legos after they were pronounced rare and never to be sold again. That put me up about a grand and a half. For LEGOS.

    Wow, let's see. I'm pretty sure this is how it went:

    1) 14" no-name brass hi hats/16" no-name brass crash (both came with my kit when I bought it. Hats have been trashed, crash has been inverted and is now used as a china)
    2) 20" Sabian B8 ride (bought for $70 used, later sold for $50)
    3) 16" ZBT crash ($70 brand new, traded into GC for $15 towards Paiste Alpha Crash)
    3) 14" B8 hats ($30+$7 shipping on Craigslist, later sold for $50)
    4) 18" B8 crash (around $50 brand new. (There's a story behind that if you're interested), sold for $55)
    5) 18" PST5 crash (bought for $80, exchanged for 18" ZBT crash)
    6) 18" ZBT crash (same $80 spent on the PST5, returned for store credit towards APX crash)
    7) 10" ZHT splash (a friend of mine gave it to me, trying to sell it to buy a Sabian splash)
    8) 18" APX crash ($180, still in use)
    9) AAX X-Plosion crash (free from Sabian's giveaway, trying to sell)
    10) 20" Z Custom ride ($90 at GC used, used $50 from sale of B8 ride to offset the cost, later traded into GC for $50 towards AA RBDR)
    11) 16" Alpha medium crash ($130 new, sold for $80 to buy AA Bright Crash)
    12) 14" ZBT hi hats (borrowed from my band's practice kit until I bought a new pair)
    13) 21" AA Raw Bell Dry Ride ($120 at GC used, paid $70 by trading in Z Custom, currently in use)
    14) 14" AA Fusion hats ($120+$12 shipping on craigslist, currently in use)
    15) 16" AA Bright Crash ($100+$15 shipping on GC used from another state, currently in use)

    I had a LOT of trouble matching up cymbals before I finally decided to stick with one brand. Looking back, I really wish I would've done that from the start. Would've saved me a lot of time and money...and my parents a lot of trips back and forth to GC

    On a side note, I'm amazed that Legos put you up 1,500 bucks. Makes me want to dig up my old collection and see what some of it's worth...

    Currently playing Paiste 2002 .... Hats, two crashes, two rides, thin china.

    Started on Paiste 2002s in 1979, played those 25 years.
    Haved owned a complete set of Paiste Signatures, Paiste traditionals, and Zildjian K Customs. All were tremendously great cymbals. And theres been about a dozen others between A Zildjians, Sabian B8 Pros (which arent bad), Paiste Alphas, A Zildjians and some I dont remember. Quite a few I passed on to up and coming drummers for really cheap.

    iv got like a 20 litre bucket FULL of lego's

    well it was my pathetically pathetic brass cymbals that i got with my powerbeat kit. Meridians. a 16" crashride (yes... 16" ) and 14" hats. my hats were beaten to the point were just having the top hat sit on top of the bottom hat with the hihat clutch attached o the top hat was making the bottom hat flip out. so then my parents got me some new cymbals. good on them, they had the right intentions, but they got me a... another meridian pair
    everything was cracking and beding and going horribly wrong that my parents bought me a pst5 pack for christmas last year.so i guess the list is...
    -16" meridian crash ride (now a target for my bow )
    -14" meridian hats (suffered a cruel cruel death.)
    -another pair of 14" meridian hats (also did suffer a cruel cruel death.)
    -16" Paiste pst5 medium crash (in use)
    -14" Paiste pst5 medium hats (in use)
    -20" Paiste pst5 medium ride (in use)
    -10" Paiste pst5 splash (in use.)
