What are your three all-time favourite cymbals?
Rhytm is a way to transmit a description of experience
in an emotional and not abstract way.
It is more than a metaphor:
It is a physical experience as real as any other.

Sabian 22" AA Heavy ride

Sabian 19" Paragon chinese (I tend to overuse it though, just because I love the sound of it so much).

Paiste 13" Signature Sound Edge hats (okay so I cheated, that counts as four :P)

There are many a crash and splash cymbal out there that I like, but I just don't feel right playing without the cymbals I've listed above.

My favorite cymbal I've had was a 15" A custom crash. It was so bright yet full at the same time. I haven't even found another of the exact same cymbal that sounds as good as that one. It broke cause they are really thin :(

Also my Z custom 16" Rock crash sounds great

And my Paiste Alpha 20" power ride. It's got a great bell

I would have to say that my 3 favorite cymbals are my Zildjian 14' New Beat Hi-Hats, my Sabian 16' B8 Pro Rock Crash, and my Wuhan 16' China. All of them sound great and I got them for good prices! :D
