    My only "dream" cymbals are the ones that fall into my lap, are tonally different than what I already have, and are a true bargain.

    The wife has put the kibosh on my G.A.S. so I have to use the "it was on sale, marked down, and I had a coupon" psychology. Hehe!

    My arsenal is in my sig. I vary the set-up by the kit, and the gig!

    From the left:

    17" K Dark Thin
    16" A Medium Thin
    11" splash (1950's) super thin, super cool
    18" A Medium Thin
    20" A Medium Ride
    18" K Dark Thin
    14" Trashformer

    The A's are all the redesigned, thinner ones. REALLY like them. The Medium Thins are lighter and lower pitched than a buddies older A Thins but have a more full sound than his. Makes him mad.

    As for cymbals, I'm pretty happy with what I have acquired:

    Hi-Hats:
    14" Zildjian A Custom
    14" Sabian Vault

    Splashes:
    10" Zildjian A Custom
    12" Wuhan
    12" Agazarian China

    Crashes:
    16" Zildjian A Custom
    18" Zildjian A Custom Fast Crash

    Rides:
    20" Sabian AAX Studio
    20" Zildjian A Medium

    Misc:
    18" Zildjian A Custom EFX
    18" Zildjian K Crash/Ride
    18" Wuhan China

    Practice cymbals, or if someone else is using the kit, and I'm not sure of their playing:
    16" Dream Contact Crash
    17" Dream Bliss Crash
    14" Zildjian ZBT Hi-Hats
    14" Zildjian ZBT Fast Crash
    16" Zildjian ZBT Crash
    20" Zildjian ZBT Rock Ride

    It's my hope that these will go the distance with me. Of course, in my case that distance is a lot closer than I'd like it to be.

    Zildjian 14" Quick Beat Hats
    Zildjian 18" K Custom Dark crash
    Zildjian 6" K Custom Hybrid Splash
    Zildjian 16" K Dark crash
    Zildjian 20" Ping Ride (A I guess)

    I also have a Zildjian ZBT China which whilst limited makes a trashy enough sound for me. I don't use this one in most of my set ups.

    I'm pretty happy with my current set up but I'd like to replace the 18" XS20 with something a little thinner. I'd like something that opens up a little quicker. Maybe an AAX X-plosion or HHX Evo.

    Left to right:

    13" Paragon hats, 9" Max Splash, 6" Zil Bel, 16" AA medium thin crash, 20" AA rock ride, 18" XS20 medium thin, 18" AAX china.

    Here's a pic of all my current cymbals....................I know, I'm a hoarder!



    My better half was mad I pushed all of the covers to the far side of the bed for that pic


    The only cymbal right now that I am actively looking for, is a 21" K Custom Hybrid Ride
