    Default My New Drums and Cymbals

    In the last ten days I have been searching for a drum kit and some cymbals. On day one, I bought two cymbals. One is a Sabian SR2 19" Heavy, which is an excellent ride. The other are Sabian XS20 Hats, which I really like. On day two I bought a Mapex Armory Sabre snare. During those two days of shopping, I saw many drum sets that I did not want, so I ordered a new Saturn kit from Sweetwater. It arrived two days ago. Peace and goodwill.

    If I can make a suggestion, you should get a longer hi hat rod.

    I set it up as a four-piece kit and changed the cymbal setup a little.

    Here are the cymbals (all Sabian)
    19" SR2 Heavy (ride)
    17" AAX Studio Crash
    16" AA Thin Crash
    14" XS20 Hats

    I have the XS20 hats as my aux hats. Think they’re great.

    Nice kit! I never hear an unkind word regarding Saturns. I likewise am a sucker for Sabian SR2 heavies. 18" and 19" are my favs. I use them as crash rides.
