    Hey Ricardo -

    Are you still playing with Jai and Rock Candy?

    The gig I played this weekend was at the Windham Hotel over behind Alltel Arena. A bit closer (across the river, anyway) to your traditional stomping grounds!

    Right now it's the 18" K Constantinople. If I could have only one crash, that would be it. However, years ago there was a ridiculously thin 10" K splash with the brilliant finish, that was so paper thin that it was a little warped on one side. That thing sounded better than any splash I have heard before or since. eventually it cracked in a huge way, but while it lived, it was amazing.
    Cut it large and kick it into place!

    The El Sabor 18" is now on the church drum set because some songs need wash riding, and the El Sabor is great for that. So my new favorite crash is my 19" AAX X-plosion Crash. Peace and goodwill.

    No change, still my favorite. I made some cymbal changes recently and checked out a ton of cymbals before I made my selections. I looked at hats, rides, and crashes from both Zildjian and Sabian and all series were fair game. As far as crashes go, this guy is still my king of the roost although I did dig the Sabian HHX 18" Evolution crash ... that is one great sounding crash ...
