I started using Paiste's but switched to Sabians early in my "career". I now use mainly all Paragons. I have 2 16" paragon crashes, 18" paragon crash, 19" paragon china, 14" paragon hi-hats. I also use 21" AA rock ride, 10" AAX splash and 13" XS20 hi-hats. I plan on rounding out my setup with the 20" paragon china, 10" paragon splash and the 8" paragon splash. I love the paragon lineup. Great sound for rock. They blend real nice and are just explosive enough.

Saiban's

Expensive but great sounding cymbals for what I play

The neil pert signature ride is great!

I voted for zildjian because that pretty much all ive ever used besides the crappy cymbal that came with my cb percussion set when i was 8, haha. Although i have a sabian china and it does sound pretty damn sweet...
