Hey Paul, how are the new Earthworks? I've been rather curious about them, but haven't talked to Jamie in a couple months.

Hi, my 1st post. Wow, some of you have a LOT of cymbals! I have:

16" Zildjian Medium Crash
14" Paiste 404 Hi-Hats
22" Zildjian Rock Ride
16" Paiste "Dimensions" Medium Crash
6" Zildjian Splash
4" Paiste 2002 accent chime
2" Paiste 2002 accent chime

The 16" Paiste dimensions m. crash I just bought but may be too heavy for me. I fell for the clean sound at the store and Had to buy it that second, but married with my other crash, it is too low in tone. I may sell it on ebay in a day or 3. Let me know if anyone is interested.

I teach drum lessons privatly part time. (I'm not 'that' good!)
Advice that I can give on cymbals (not much, but...) - especially to the kids-
don't worry about sticking to one brand name (you are not
endorsed yet!- When you are, then you can switch!) - just go
with the SOUND that you like. Even if it is "K-mart" brand bought
at a yard sale.
Audio Engineers live by this: "The better you sound, the better
you will play." So as long as it sounds great to you.
Nice to meet ya'll.
