    Update: I recently made a change to this stack. I put it on an X-Hat mount and turned the bottom cymbal upside down as it would be on a hi-hat. It sounds even better now, a great trash hat. I may make another for the left side of the kit.

    I think you nailed it. My opinion is stacks don't exactly sound pleasant, more of a loud static 'white noise' with minimal sustain. Like china cymbals, I'm not particularly fond of the sound of most of them, but they can work well depending upon the type of music played and personal preferences. If you don't like stacks, well - thats one less piece of crap to spend money on and haul around.

    A lot of cymbals just don't work well in stacks in my opinion. Small splashes and chinas usually work but again, not always. What you are going for (at least normally) is a short trashy sound, sort of like a china but with much less sustain. It's a lot more of a percussive sound, and it definitely won't work for everything.

    No the new one... The one with a crash with a stacked FX Spiral Trash. Here's the link:

    So I had my local metal worker "Ozonify" two old ZBT cymbals.. a crash and a splash. On their own they sound great. Stacked... they sound AWEOME!

    I must say I have a few cymbals but this one sounds the nastiest (in a good way).

    I made another pair actually.

    I actually have a 16" Sabian Ozone crash and a 10" Ozone splash. I love them both by themselves, but I've never tried stacking them. I'm going to have to give it a try!

    When I got my OZONE crash I tried several combinations with my china and couldn't get what I liked. I want to order a smaller ozone (14" or smaller) and try it again.

    Looks very cool. The ozone would sound great because air doesn't get trapped between the two cymbals.

    The vented cymbals like Ozones sound great in stacks. Meinl 12" Classics Custom Trash Splash on top of a Meinl 16" Byzance Vintage Trash Crash is great...not super loud but I like that. Very trashy but also kind of mellow and it's a cool short crash sound.
    The Meinl CC Trash Splash is such a great cymbal for stacking, honestly. And it's cheap.

    So I stacked my Ozone crash and splash this morning and tried it out. I like it, but I think I like them by themselves more. I keep my Ozone splash really tight, I use an extra cymbal felt and crank down the wing nut. It makes it a real fast decay.

    This is a recipe for a cracked ozone splash.

    Yeah, you guys are probably right. I'll loosen it up. Thanks for the tip.

    I haven't had much luck yet getting a sound I like with my extra cymbals, either. I've heard some combinations on YouTube recordings and such that make a sound that I think I would like to have, I just can't seem to recreate it with what I have available.

    I'll keep experimenting. Not an urgent need, or an easy way to add it to the kit in some room set-ups, but I think it would be a great alternative to the big china sound.
