I admit I am a cymbal addict. Like the drums I have played everything and even endorsed Sabian and Ufip for a while but something was always missing. It was not THE sound. But one day I saw a traditional. Looked at the bell touched it and there it was. It was MY sound! This was over ten years a go and I will never switch. The sound engineers always look at my cymbals and say the something, -They sound wonderful! Fits perfect in the picture and they are just there!
Cymbals are Paiste, Paiste and more Paiste. My favorite is Signature Traditionals. I am constantly searching eBay for different sizes and I would love to find a Traditional china! Don’t know if there ever was one.
But I do admit that I have other brands in my bags, it all about the sound!
