    Splash: Zildjian 11" thin from the 50's

    Crash: Zildjian A 18" (2013 - love these new A's)
    China/Effects: Zildjian Crash of Doom
    Ride: After many years, I still haven't fallen in love with one.

    Among these, your BEST ONE of them all: I'm not one of those "if it's old it's good" guys but the 1960's 13" hats are so good - sound and feel. Top and bottom are both under 700 grams. Quick, buttery feel, pitch is not as dark as K's but not as bright at heavier hats.

    Bonus: wish I had a... million dollars
