If some punk thug snuck into your house and told you he was gonna take every cymbal you own except one, which one one would you keep? (Not including hihats).

I would keep my 16 inch a zildjian medium thin crash. Soooooo simple but such a lovely sound...

10-21-2005, 05:36 PM
my 16" HHX stage crash
or my 21" HH raw bell dry ride

Yeah I kind of like my hats, why can't I keep them?

10-21-2005, 05:55 PM
Sorry for the confusion, the thug says you can keep your hihats. I was pretty sure everyone would choose their hihats (I would) so I just eliminated them as posibilities.

hey, if you like it, you like it.

i myself dont like it, and thats just my opinion. i just dont reccomend it

anyways, if i could only have ONE cymbal from my collection, it'd be my 16" AA Medium Crash....or my 16" AAX Stage crash....damn those 2 blend so perfectly

ThugsRook
10-21-2005, 05:57 PM
the only cymbal i ever owned that i had any affection for... was a 20" RUDE china type. (i had an 18" 2002 ride that i liked alot too)

Well I'd pick up my wuhan and I'd throw it at the floor to make him go deaf, then I'd throw my b8 ride at him like a frisbee if he avoids it I'll throw my crash and splash then, I'll take out my big 22'' A Ping Ride and attack him with it(Quite an imagination I have).

If I had to choose one to keep it would be my Sabian 21'' Signiture Triptop Ride, so perfect for a ride, warm bell that cuts through because its high pitched, the part near the bell has a crazy amount of clarity and definition and the outer bow has such nice overtones with good stick defintion

No I hate my hats compared to all my other cymbal(exept b8s) I have an A, K custom and Sabian Signiture as my big cymbals and my hats b8 sonix

my 19 inch vintage A 19 in. crash. its craked but i still prefer it to any of my zxts.

Plan B.
10-21-2005, 08:55 PM
I can't narrow it down to just one.

But for now I'll say either the 20" K Custom Dry Light ride, or my K Dark crashes.

Rayne264
10-21-2005, 10:06 PM
unfortunately right now i have two shi*ty cymbals. so, i would take my 18" zbt crash over my 20" sabian b8 pro ride.

Ahh I can't choose between my vintage K ride or crash, or my 20" paiste sig dry ride. Probally the vintage K ride as I couldn't buy a new one of those but I could go and get another sig, i'd just have to safe for a while that's all.

My 19" A custom crash. A bell with a nice distinct ping, wonderful wash. You can ride on the mid section or crash on the brim. Such volume and projection too. Its everything a cymbal should be- and looks good doing it.

Double Bass Jim

10-22-2005, 03:59 AM
My Paiste 20" New Dimensions Raw Medium Crash; its that big that i use it as a ride, and when you play it with the shoulder, oh its the rapture coming my friends. Funny, i'm a K/K-Custom man through and through, but a paiste is my favourite cymbal in my arsenal. Plus, have you ever seen the price tag on 20" Crashes in Australia.. fusty fucking walrus!

Nightmar3
10-22-2005, 07:22 AM
i'd have to say my 20" spizzichino ride :)

has anyone else ever heard any spizz cymbals?


Is it an italian brand?

I would keep my 16" bosphorus trad crash, and I would hit him with my zbt crash hoping to break it so I can change it

dj_ando
10-22-2005, 07:30 AM
sure is. roberto spizzichino is imo one of the world's finest cymbal craftsmen. all his cymbals are hand made, and he's got quite a reputation. have a peek on the cymbalholic forums and you'll see straight away how popular he is. i've only got the one spizz, and i haven't seen another in australia, but it's a really beautiful cymbal.

i got my spizz along with my other ride for a KILLER price! the other ride is a sabian carl allen signature mini-bell, 20". got the pair for $450 australian off my old drums teacher who was desperate for some cash. he got the spizz for $700 new, and i think it's worth at least that now! give me a second and i'll have some pics up

Considering you never mentioned whether or not he was armed, I would consider he isn't, I doubt some thug is going to get hold of a gun, let alone be able to use it.

I would shank him with the screwdriver that has been on my floor ever since I changed my snare wire 5 months ago.

No way in hell is he taking my vintage zildjians. :]

While on the topic of cymbals, I made a post like a week ago with news of my cymbals but no pictures, I took some pictures with my sisters phone but couldn't put them on my comp, she got a new computer so hopefully she'll be able to get the pictures on her new computer and from there either here on the forums or to my computer for the forums... That ride is such a beaut, it doesn't get much better.(exept for my maybe an Instanbul or Turkish, I've been wanting one now but I don't want 3 rides!)

@TTTNSB - The thrash ride is actually pretty good sounding. Good for Post Hardcore type stuff where you crash your ride. It's not pingy or cutting enough to use as a main Ride in Rock/Metal type music. A nice cymbal though. :) Looks great too.
