Thread: More cymbals on the way

    Default More cymbals on the way

    I just scored a set of New Beat Hi Hats and a 16 inch medium thin Zildjian A crash on a certain online auction site. I can't wait to get them because I got them for about 45% of what they would cost me new. I play Sabian SR2's now but was looking for a different sound and started looking at Zildjian. Unfortunately the local craigslist never really has anything that is a good deal. Everybody wants to sell their 10 year old equipment like its new or they are selling really cheap entry level stuff. I think I'm safe with Zildjian A cymbals and If I don't like them it should be easy to sell them off.

    Congrats vlopez! I have a pair of 14" vintage New Beats and I love how they cut through the mix. The Sabian SR2's are a good deal and since you had a chance to pick them out with some help, I'm certain they sound decent.

    SR2's are extremely variable, there are probably some out there with the sound you want but it can be impossible to go through a big stack of them to find the perfect ones.

    Too bad about your Craigslist; mine has a ton of stuff on it all the time but it all depends on location. I do see people pricing things insanely high too and just laugh...but plenty of good deals to be had.

    I love New Beats! I have a 14 inch set from the 80's which always sounds great. I picked up a set of 14 inch A Customs which I love as well. I recently found a great deal on a used 13 inch set of New Beats and I had to get them. Now I have 3 good pairs of hats, and I can keep one on my home set, one on the set at the rehearsal site and one packed in my cymbal bag for gigs!

    Yeah new beats are great I went to a local store and they had 3 different used new beats on stands and tried them all while they were all different they all sounded great tome me. So I feel safe buying them without hearing them. I paid $160 shipped to my door for the new beats and $78.00 for the 16 inch A medium thin crash to my door. I feel like I got a good deal just waiting for them to get here.
