Actually what is ironic is my favorite ride was a Zildjian that was in a fire that happened at our local muisc shop. They had a fire sale and I picked up a Z ride with no stamp on it and it was a bit blackened. I polished it up and it sounded awesome. I would still be using it if it did not crack. But I had it for years and it served me well. DB

sabian has been my favorite but i have a huge mix. I have sunlite stock hats and ride, wuhan trad. splash and china(who was expecting that?), sabian AA tight ride(my baby) and AA bright crash, and my saluda pre aged 22" china.

i trimmed down and took off the sunlite ride and wuhan china and got rid of my 8" tom now. but soon I should be getting the sabian AAX bright crash. and then eventually new hats. hats.

I have a mix of the big 3 as well as Wuhans, UFIPs, others...

I prefer high-end Paistes, they are consistent and sound great to my ears and style.
