After months of searching the web, here is my new cymbal setup.
20" Zildjian A Costum Medium Ride
20" Paiste 2002 Medium Crash
18" Paiste 2002 Ride
18" Meinl Classic China
14" Paiste 2002 Heavy hi-Hats
15" Paiste 2002 Crash - made in 1973
10" Paiste Alpha Metal Splash
no. it is not a flat ride and it is not the wild ride. it is an 18" ride, made in germany in 1992. I had no idea that Paiste used to make professional cymbals in germany. But it sounds great. both as a ride and as a crash.
Why did you go with Meinl and Zildjian? When it comes to symbols, you've got to go with Paiste. The kit looks great though. People may have different suggestions but I am and will always remain a Paiste devotee. ? Rock on!
