Stu's Cymbals
Hey stu. What do you use for crashes. i know that they are Zildjian but that is about it.

Well you're very right...they are zildjians, with the exception of my high hats....those're powerbeats that I got when I purchased the set, for the two of them together it was 40 dollars so you can imagine the quality!! lol...yeah they suck. As for my ride cymbal...its a "ping ride." I belive its a 27" ping ride at that. My two crash cymbals...well they're both 17", but ones an "A" zildjian series, the other ones a P.O.S. oldies special! Thats the best I can do for you man. My high hats are busted and I need new ones and Im planning on getting a new crash to replace the POS one! But just because I do that I may still use the POS one just to have three at that point. FYI....I'm also planning on attaining myself a double bass pedal!!! I cannot wait!!!! Thank you for your question!

Just an update. Stu got his new double bass pedal. Its very nifty. He also got a spiffy new Pearl snare drum. Ask him about it. He'll explain it in detail.

Hey Stu, what did you get for a pedal? I just got a DW 7000 series dbl pdl with money I made this summer. And you also got a new Pearl Snare? Sensitone? or is it a spiffy wooden one?

Wow dude, im an ass.....I never even saw your post from september....My bad. The double bass pedel I got was a dw7000 I think, I like it alot (still gettin used to it), but ive pretty much worn down the cotton side of the batter, Im gonna have to get a couple new ones, or just have them always flipped around. The snare I got, I friggin love.....Its like a 14" x 5.5" piccolo. Thing pops like a muthuh. I wanted one that I had seen with this light colored wood finish all around the shell.....but it was in a little bit of rough shape in a few minor areas, but then I saw the same snare a few dollors less in new condition at a drum store in portland, only thing was the shell was a brass color. I really wanted a piccolo snare and I loved the sound of this one and I wanted new rather than dented....so I got the brass. I still prefer the look of the wood one, but still sounds friggin kick ass. Sorry I didn't get back to you months ago. You should deffinately play that set more though dude.....thats all it is, just playin as much as you can. Keep it up man, and I'll try to answer your question much quicker next time dude.....sorry!

The most Ive paid for a cymbal is about 200 bucks. And that was for a thick heavy large ping ride zildjian. All of my cymbals are zildjian, and I typically pay about 160-170 for each. Aha...actually I take that back my zildjian quick beat high hats were about 240. But thats for a pair really, so if you were to buy them individually (which you wouldnt really) it would be 120. Id suggest you start shopping from magazines man...get yerself some deals. The only thing that sux about mags is that you cant hear what the cymbal sounds like before you buy it which can change from cymbal to cymbal not just style to style or brand to brand. Almost every cymbal is going to sound different.....almost. Ive recently been looking at the zildjian platinum series...or is it titanium or somn. They're silver colored instead of like a gold/bronze and oh do they sound so sweet....plus the metel they're made of titanium alloy or whatever the hell it is apparently has a much higher tolerance against discoloring and eroding like alot of other cymbals do from the oil of yer hands and general useage. However they are a little more money to fork out of the pocket for...but I think it'll be worth it when I do. Hope this helped man.

thx dude, and i think i know what cymbols you're talking about. the platinum series they jus came out with or somthing like that... yeah those are sweeeeeeeeeeeet ::drools:: but dude they're expensive. my friend has them they're resistant to alotta things ordinary cymbols can't deal with.
