      I think I am the only person on earth who doesn't like the K's.....they just never appealed to me for some reason.

      I am really fond of the 18" A custom crash, 18 and 16" Z custom crashes...I like the A custom ride too...20". I don't like the 22" rides too much because the decay is ****************. Don't know much about the splashes or china's. Z custom hi-hats are pretty good too......as you can see I am a Zildjian man

        Suck on this:

        Turkish Special Dark Thin Jazz Ride 19"

        Does what it says and doubles as a Bonham crash

        Hand hammered from Istanbul; price paid: roughly $140.
        You just called me a bastard, didn't you?

              I really like my 10" K splash

              The show, no matter how retarded, must go on. This is why musicians drink so much, alcohol helps them cope with facts by enveloping their brains and auditory senses in a haze of thickly applied B.S.

                  My 20 inch A. Zildjian medium thin crash. Probably 20 years old and loud and full as hell. My favorite ride is my Paiste Alpha dry ride. I actually prefer the way it sounds over any Zildjian, Sabian, or more expensive Paiste.

                        i can't decide between 3 of my cyms.
                        So i have 3 favorites!

                        early 80's Zildjian Earth ride/with rivets
                        Wuhan 17" China
                        A zild. 16" thin crash, modified - i put rivets into it! now a favorite!
                        It is during difficult times that true friends become apparent.

                          Most of mine suck but I did manage to pick up a pretty cool cymbal I use for a ride.
                          It's a Zildjian 16" Field cymbal, very heavy with a great ride sound and a LOUD bell. Plus it's so small it's real easy to place in between stuff. Cost $35 on evilBay.

                          However I am borrowing a 21" Sabian AA and am growing fond of that.

                              I'd have to say my 20" A Ping Ride, nice definition, clear bell sound, and ironically, a great "wash" for rock music.
