    Thanks HammerHand! I was checking out your cool setup just today.
    You know, half my set is sitting in a basement in Horsepasture at the moment...... Until Chirstmas at least. I always take half my set up on Thanksgiving to jam with my brother (he lives in Northern VA) and leave it until Chirstmas.

    Thanks, prd!
    You know, at the moment I'm playing the same setup you have, minus one of the floor toms. I've got a single bass and my 10, 12 & 16 toms up at the moment. It's a pretty cool setup really.
    I think yours look better, though.

    I see you have the famous "Tico Tilt" going on with that snare drum. I can't play like that, but if it works for you and Tico Torres, I am all for it.

    Hi. I did this review over in the Cymbal Talk Section for Holybanana, but I thought that it would be a nice addition over here, since this is my set thread.


    OK, here's my review of the cymbals that I own. They are mostly Zildjian, but there is a few Wuhans and a Paiste thrown in for good measure.


    21 A Zildjian Rock Ride: My first purchase. Bought new in 1981.
    Description: Heavy! This thing is pretty beefy, as are all of the Rock series. It is a heavy cymbal, with a pronounced ping when played, especially with nylon tip sticks. It sounds great with either sticks or brushes. Decent to good bell sound.
    I have recorded it many times, and it always gives a great sound. It is especially nice if you are playing softer songs if you use lighter nylon tip sticks (like the Regal Tip Jake Hannas or the Regal Tip Jazz.)
    You cannot crash it, though. The overtones build up quick and dont sound that good. If I ever want to crash/ride, then I use my Rock Crash.
    Sound: Excellent
    Versatility: Excellent


    18 A Zildjian Rock Crash: My second purchase. Bought New 1982.
    Description: Heavy! I bought into the hype back when I bought it where I had to have all Rock series since I wanted to play rock. It is not a good first crash. It is way too heavy and slow. But now that I have several thinner crashes, the Rock crash is great for accents and to really make a statement. It actually has a nice sound, and it is really good for crash/riding. I would recommend buying one only as a third or fourth crash, though. It is just not that versatile.
    Sound: Very Good
    Versatility: Limited


    15 A Zildjian Rock Hi-Hats: Third Purchase. Bought New 1982.
    Description: Heavy! The one word that would describe them is pronounced. They really cut through the mix, and if you dont like a heavy hi-hat sound, then they are not for you. If you are playing eighth or sixteenth notes on them, you will hear them no problem, even if they are not miced. My snare and overhead mics pick them up just fine. I have debated replacing them, as at times they are a bit overpowering, but over the last several years I have listened to many recordings of these cymbals (from 1988 to 2005) and I have to say that they really do sound good. I may still look for a lighter set of hats, but I am in no hurry.
    Sound: Very Good
    Versatility: Good


    16 A Zildjian Medium Thin Crash: Bought New 1988.
    The best cymbal I own. Period. I love this cymbal. If you can only buy one cymbal, this is the one I recommend. Very versatile, and I end up playing it about 70% of the time, regardless of what type of music I am playing. It has a brighter sound to it, so it cuts through on recordings. It doesnt get lost in the mix. It has a great wash, and it has a shimmer that is hard to describe. I let a few drummers listen to some recordings I did recently and they asked what effect I had on my cymbals. After talking to them for a bit, I figured out that they were talking about the way this cymbal and the 16 thin shimmer. Its almost a flanger type sound. It is subtitle, but it is there.
    The sound is fast and bright, but not tinny.
    Sound: Excellent
    Versatility: Excellent


    16 A Zildjian Thin Crash: Bought used 1985(?).
    This one is close to the medium thin, but it is a little brighter, and a little louder. I use it in concert with the medium, so I can have a bam-BAM effect, where one crash is slightly higher and louder than the other. This cymbal cracked around the bell in 1989, and I drilled it out. I am still playing it today and it still sounds great. In fact, I bought the medium thin to replace this one, but it is still going, so I use both.
    Sound: Excellent
    Versatility: Excellent


    15 A Zildjian Paper Thin Crash: Bought new around 2002.
    Very fast and bright. Not much sustain. It is similar to the thin, but it has more splash characteristics than my other crashes. Its a great accent cymbal, for when I need a faster crash. In a pinch, it will work fine as a main crash, but the thins are better suited for that for the style I play.
    Sound: Excellent
    Versatility: Excellent/Very Good


    10 Wuhan Splash: Bought new 2003.
    Great sound and a very quick cymbal. It has the typical splash characteristics, with not much sustain and a swish sound to it. It is good for accents when you dont want to use a major crash. It is a good cymbal for using mallets on.
    Sound: Very Good
    Versatility: Limited


    18 A Zildjian Hi-Boy China:
    This one was a gift from another drummer. I just dont like the sound. I replaced it with a Wuhan and was much happier. It is very, brash and tinny, with a slight gong effect. And it is loud. Kind of like a stop the song kind of loud instead of a dramatic effect loud. It has a tendency to make the other band members turn around to see who threw a chair through the window.
    Im sure that somebody else could probably use it better than I can, but for what I play Im not fond of this one. It does look cool, though. I am not currently playing this one.
    Sound: Below Average
    Versatility: Limited it is a china.


    18 A Wuhan China: Bought new 2004.
    Like the other Wuhans, it is thin, and has a frail feel to it. It does sound very good, though. Excellent mallet cymbal. You can really do some great swells with it using mallets. I use Chinas mainly for effect, and I use them sparingly. This one has a good bright sound, and it is a fast china with a quick decay. It is not overly loud like the Zildjian Hi-Boy, which I like. It is louder than the crashes, but not by 10x like the Zildjian is.
    Sound: Above Average
    Versatility: Limited it is a china.


    12 Wuhan China: Bought new 2003.
    Its thin. It has a unique sound to it. Kinda like breaking a small glass. Quick with little decay. It is about the same volume as my thin crashes, so it is good for doing minor accents where I dont want the effect to overpower the music. It is a good cymbal for using mallets on. It is kind of a cross between a traditional china and a splash. Using a light touch and a nylon tip, you can get a BB on a tin roof sound out of it.
    Sound: Average/Unique
    Versatility: Limited it is a china.

    Honorable mention:
    Paiste 502 10 Splash: Decent cymbal for the money that didnt fit in with my kit. More tinny sound than my other cymbals. I found it a happy home.

    Hey guys, sorry for not responding earlier. For some reason I wasn't getting the Forum reply to thread notifications. I apologize.

    nightwalker, to answer your question; I built the drum riser for several reasons.
    First of all, it does add a good visual to the set.
    Second, it gets the drums up off the floor and adds to their projection. My old singer told me that after I built it he had to get used to the bass drums kicking him in the back of the head now.
    Another reason that I built it was that it laid out where my set would fit on stage. If you've ever been trying to set up your kit with the other band members setting up, sometimes they put their stuff too close to your set. With the riser, I would bring it in first and set it up. It would define how much space I needed to set up my drums, and I never had to worry about anybody invading my space.
    Hope that answers your question.
