I started on Zildijans (I wish I still had those cymbals :-( ),

I have been playing Sabians since 1987. I really like Sabians because they are like Zildjians but cheaper.

Since 1979 I have always had at least one Paiste in my setup, but the last three years I have been buying a lot of Paiste cymbals when Guitar Center during their Memorial Day gear blow outs and I have gotten some great cymbals (i.e., discontinued models, etc.). For the last three weeks I have been using only my Paiste's at my weekly gig and they sound great.

I am look forward to playing the new Paiste "Twenty" cymbals that are suppose to be very Zildjian like. I guess we will see, but if you have the money buy Paiste.

you can only vote for one?

i use a sabian pro ride and i'm looking for the hats from that set.

i'm currently using zildjian crashes because they were cheap. i'm not picky for crashes; just whatever will last the longest because i break crashes.

by the way, the zildjian titaniums sucked my ass. they all broke super easy.

going around the set from the left
14" Istanbul Anatolian Series HiHats
19" Paiste PST 5 Crash
17" Paiste PST 5 Crash
uhm noname 18" China looks like a Wuhan., but it isn't but has this nice bashy sound
LP Icebell upsidedown
20" Istanbul Anatolian Raw Ride

I want to have additional 2 or 3 Splashes and another crash on the right of the ride. My local dealer has a very cheap 15" China I will buy too, I think. Problem is I would need to buy some more hardware ... ahh again this money thing ... I once owned a 22" China which broke into unplayable pieces .. too bad, but that cymbal played with mallets ...
