ZILDJIAN BY FAR MAKES THE BEST "COMMERCIAL" CYMBALS, SABIAN CAN'T COMPARE FOR SOUND. AS WELL WUHAN PRODUCES THE BEST CHINA CYMBALS. :D
ROCK ON!!!!

I've been a lifelong user of Zildjian Cymbals. I perfer the big beefy sounds of the 18 inch medium thin crash, and the K Session Crash cymbal. Zildjians have shaped my sound to the type of music that I play.

Istanbul Agop... and Paiste ;)
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.
