I use a Saluda Mist X 18" medium crash.

And I hope on getting a Mist X 19" Rock crash, a V Bell, and 15" Earthworks hats.

I placed my order. I was a little trepidatious not being able to hear the exact cymbals I ordered but after talking with Jaime my fears were alleviated. Honestly even listening to cymbals in a shop, without the context of the set-up you have, and under the conditions you use them doesn't always yield a perfect purchase though it's better than not hearing them at all.

Same here.

I was in a situation though where I needed a replacement crash, and I didn't have the time to test out cymbals, so when I ordered from Jamie, I got just what I wanted, for cheap, and fast.

I love my 16" mist x thin dark crash and 6" v bell. Next up is a set of hats that I have had planned for months, just need to work up the cash to actually do it.

I exclusively use Saluda Cymbals. I will never purchase a "mainstream" cymbal as long as Jamie has this company. My music is important enough to me to have my cymbals custom made. 8)
