    I bought a Sabian AA 16" Xplosion Crash a week ago and used it on a gig today. It goes very well with the El Sabor 18".

    So I am planning to use this at the next two outdoor gigs.

    20" AA Medium Ride
    18" AA El Sabor (which I used as a crash and a ride today)
    16" AA Xplosion Crash
    14" XS20 Medium Hats

    I am giving my AA 17" Thin Crash a rest for now. Peace and goodwill.

    My current cymbal setup:

    Sabian AA Sizzle Hats 14
    Sabian AA Bash Ride 21
    Sabian AAX Aero Crash 18
    Sabian AAX Aero Crash 20

    I've also owned some Sabian AAX Xplosion Crashes and Zildjian A Custom Crashes over the years. I've had a much better experience with Sabian. My A Custom Crashes both cracked after 5 or 6 months. I've had my Aero Crashes for over 3 years now and they're still good as new. Sabians are a lot more durable than Zildjian in my experience.

    Here is most of my current cymbals on hand. Most I have purchased from current to the last 1-2 years, stocking up to put a small kit together. In that time, design and kit size has changed and going to go on Pearl Icon racks.

    Not all cymbals will be used on the kit. Will test out each and see if the sound fits. If so, will keep, if not, there will be a big sale at the end of the sound check. Thern it's off to find anything else that I may be missing (which will probably be several)

    I got impressed with the XS20 line from the used 16" sounds fantastic and at the lower cost price point originally budgetted I got most of the line. The ZHT line was mostly due to deep discounted from Best Buy when they were closing down thier "Music Dept" so a decent cymbal in the lower price range. To say the least, that small kit budget went way out the window.

    The other higher end cymbals I got good deals on from places like CL, Reverb, etc. The new 13" Paragons I got brand new from Amazon for $205 + tax in the last 2 weeks and they are in and perfect. Current plan is to use the 13" Paragons as main and 14" K's on the remote...can always switch around.
