Just checked out the site; those are some fine lookin' pies. Is there anywhere in eastern NC to see/hear some in person?I want to greatly expand my personal collection of the cymbals I sell, Cymbal & Gong: additional 20" and 22" jazz rides, 20" Merseybeat ride, we're doing a 22" Billy Higgins-type cymbal, I want one of those; some 15" light hihats, 14" Second Line swish cymbal, 18" Turk ride. 20" heavy patina Janavar (Giant Beat style) crash/ride with rivets. Lots of things.
Phew, sounds like you’ll be busy this year! Look forward to some pics!A bespoke all-maple drum kit with traditional sizes, robust modern hardware, and a nice looking finish (thinking of red-yellow sparkle fade).
I toyed with the idea of a concert tom kit, but then I found that I could get a similar attack by tuning up the batter and down the reso. This way I could still get a normal, double-headed tone, by simply tuning down the batter and up the reso.
A more balanced cymbal collection, including Zildjian (or Sabian), Paiste, and possibly Wuhan.
Need to let some of my unused old cymbals go, e.g. my old Avedis Zildjian. Don't worry, I won't really lose any money on it.
A Yamaha DTX Multi-12, to replace my Roland SPD-30 (I prefer my electronic drums to be more of a synthesiser than a sample pack)
What I've already bought:
- A Jinbao hammered-copper snare drum, and a pair of aluminium die-cast hoops for it.
- A Zildjian Symphonic French cymbal (an orphan cymbal from a pair). I use it as a thin crash or crash-ride.
- A Korg Volca Sample drum machine
Wow! That’s some proper Paiste patience right there!My wish for 2022 is for the three snares, bass drum and hardware I ordered last year to arrive this year. Mid March will be a year since I placed the order for a Starphonic Aluminum Snare. I’m told April for all of it, but they didn’t specify April of 2022 or 2023
It’s a Swiss crash. Like the cheese. I have one. It’s a monster cymbal. Very loud when struck hard, or a low-sounding waterfall when played on its edge.20" PSTX Swish Crash on the left side.
That sounds like a good setup. I’ve found myself drawn to Paiste more and more. I really want to try out the 2002 16” hats in person.Paiste 2002 Big Beat 16" hats, 20 and 21 or 22" for the crash spot, 24" for the ride spot. 8" 2002 splash, 20" PSTX Swish Crash on the left side.
Scratch another one off my list!I’m fortunate enough to have an update on my list. Originally I had:
17” Paiste Sig crash
19” Meinl Byzantine Medium Thin Trad crash
15” hats and >20” ride
Gibralter stealth rack for my floor tom side
Refurb on my Speed King
a small kit for my 5 year old
I purchased the 19” about a month ago and the stealth rack a few days ago. I think my next target will be the 21 or 22” ride.
