Thanks for the compliments, folks!

Paul,

I'm proud to endorse Saluda Cymbals. Here's my current lineup, from left to right from behind my kit:

14" Saluda Diamond Series Heavy Hi-Hats
16" Saluda Voodoo Brilliant China
17" Saluda Mist-X Series Medium Crash
18" Saluda Diamond Series Heavy Crash
18" Saluda Diamond Series Medium Crash
18" Saluda Diamond Series Heavy Crash
20" Saluda Mist-X Series Heavy Ride
17" Saluda Expressions (SEX) Series China

All the cymbals were made to my specifications regarding weight, brightness, sound, and hammering. I'll put my Saludas up against any mainstream cymbal maker any day.
