Pang the ultimate alto under

After having switched out some stored gear onto my smaller set-up. I am coming to the conclusion that the much maligned pang is the ultimate all round cymbal.These are not specialist cymbals but can bat, bowl and field in equal measure. It works as a ride it works as a crash it works as an effect. The key I think is having a 20" or larger size in a medium thin weight. If I could only bring one cymbal to a gig this would be it.

They are not extreme they are not niche but there again who wants to lug 10 cymbals to a gig when 2 big bad boys and a pair of hats will do.
