    for crashes maybe try the paiste 2002 crash- its a little thinner than the medium crash and it is for sure brighter than the twenty.
    Yeah but a 24" ride would necessitate a bigger cymbal carrying device, in which case I'd want an SKB hard case, and those two together are, well...a lot. I'd love a 24", and maybe one day it'll happen, but not right now. Besides, I could go back and forth between the 2002 and the Giant Beat until ROMAN manages to get a 19.25" 2002 Black Reflector Wild Full Thin Crash made.

    Anyway, the whole point of replacing my Z-Custom is to get something different. Shouldn't be hard, the Power Ride is about as thick as a monster truck's brake drum, nowhere to go but thinner!. I'd love a 22" K Heavy but those, like a 24", are expensive (if you can even find one), so right now I'm looking at a 22" Wild Ride, 22" Ride, and 22" Heavy Ride, all 2002s.

    I'd like to get the entire arsenal of 20" 2002 crashes eventually, minus the Power Crash. I got that before I got the Twenty and took it back. It's a ride cymbal and it knows it. Now that you mention the regular Crashes though...what about having twin 22s?

    Yeah, that sounds nice.

      that sounds very nice! those heavy rides are sick! maybe throw a 24" 2002 crash on there and you're set

      I got my 22" K heavy for about 200 USD actually. you can find them on ebay once in a while.

            I got the SKB 24" vault for the price of the normal one. Massmusic has them at a really good price for only $120. I had justdrums match the price and I got it in like 2 days, I loooove it.

            PS, look into Zildjian Avedis 24" medium ride, as far as 24" rides go, it's not that pricey, and I love the sound of mine. haha

              They are, and now that I've come up with the 22" ride & crash combo I'm leaning more towards the Heavy. I feel lucky that I find so many cymbals attractive, but it's just hard to find which one I like best. If I could I'd buy all three.
              And you found a good deal on that K Heavy. The ones that I've come across have ended up going for between $350-$400. That's how much they cost back when Zildjian still offered them!

              It'll come some day, I have no doubts about that. But first I wanna get a replacement for the Z-Custom and I feel more comfortable with a 22" as my go-to ride. And don't think I've forgotten Zildjian's classic monster

                Some outdoor goodness for everybody

                Unfortunately, the sun cooked the wrap a bit as I was taking the pictures, but after the drums cooled it smoothed back down again

                      wish it hadn't been so hot- seeing your wrap cook is never fun. is that why the set of pics is incomplete?

                      they look pretty sexy in the sun man.

                            Oh I did this just for the color :P

                            You can't see it in the pictures, but I did have my 2002 on a stand to pose with the rest of the kit. Only problem was that I couldn't see with it out in the sun. The thing is like a friggin mirror!

                            But yeah I still had my drums in my living room from when I recorded on Tuesday (hardware and such made it upstairs), so I just transferred them to the deck when the weather was finally nice enough.

                              awesome. I personally love dirty cymbals- I never clean them, just dust them off before a gig (maybe...)

                                Depends on the cymbal with me. I let my hi-hat's fester and I probably won't ever clean the Twenty, but I love the sheen on the 2002s. Plus cleaning it keeps it nice and bright
