Hmmmm for you, a Mike Portnoy 9" Max Splash. That's a bit pricey though so I'd say maybe an 8" or 10" AAX splash

if you need help with cymbals ever, PM me, I send a lot of my free time studying cymblas and stuff

look up some sound files,
write down the ones you like
go to your closest music/drum store
take one of the sticks you usually play with

ask if they have them in stock
set them up
and test them out
have the drum tech hit them
as you listen to them different distances away
pick out the one that sounds best to you dude

we can't tell you witch splash is best for YOU




p.s. if you to PM anyone about cymbals
PM rufus he's a cymbal master

I think he'd be better off going and trying every splash out without hearing sound files. I've bought cymbals online because of the sound files and they did not sound like the sound file when I got them.

Or, you could just make everyone who's popular on this forum happy and buy a Saluda!

i suggested he listen to sound files to get a grip on what he was looking for,
saludas are great cymbals, and they're worth looking into.

Yeah I suppose you're right again :oops:

From now on I'm watching the online list. I'm not posting while you're on. You're too smart for me :mrgreen:

Yeah I know what you mean. The internet and text messages are bad places for that stuff.

I always end up in a big pissing match with someone over it 8)

ok im sorry i thought about this post and realized it would just turn into an opinoin thread, or one that would say go try out some that you might like...

so like what are some characteristics that make up a good splash? and good hats for that matter too.

thanks

splashes you obviously want something splashy, quick, loud..
dark or bright is up to you
i like dark cymbals, but a lot of people like bright cymbals

hats you want quick chick with the foot pedal, nice stick definition, crisp when closed..
wash when open, again dark or bright is up to you

Like the others said.. I mixed my cymbals quite a bit though, so I have 1 bright and 1 dark splash.. My favorite splash is 8" A custom and 11" K hybrid! They're great splashes!

I like mixing mine up. I don't like huge kits but I like mixing cymbals for the sound I'm trying to get.
