18" Meinl Classic China
14" Paiste 2002 Heavy hi-Hats

what's up with the 18" ride? is it flat? can't tell from the photo.

I lust after that 20" 2002 crash and the heavy hats.

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!
