i have the k custom dry ride, love it , great sound

change the A's into K's cause they're way better "sound and projection even for punk"and it doesn't broke as easy as A's do

take care

if your cracking a's then your really gonna crack some k customs. k customs arent really the best for playing metal a's however are great.. put plastic sleeves on your cymbal stands, it'll be a harder to crack cymbals never have metal touching metal, also every cymbal zildjian sells comes with a 1 year warranty. call zildjian get an "ra" number and mail it back and you'll get a brand new one for free.... thats right free only if its beenn a year though

I just bought a 20" K Custom Dark ride at Sam Ash of $175!! It's used but in excellent shape.
I just played it for about an hour and am really digging it.

The k custom line is proably one of the best series Zildjian makes. But i wouldnt recommend
using the them for the type of music you use because they cannot take the heavy hitting

dude, have you seen his videos?
dani is pretty freaking sweet :shock:

and it all comes down to technique and they way you're hitting
any cymbal can take a beating
that's what they're made to do
if you're doing it right
drums - pacific LX
cymbals - saluda black mist, voodoo
pedals - axis, iron cobra
gear - DW, rock n' sock
sticks - vic firth
