sabian? dude, Paiste is the only way!

still, that's quite a good deal you got. 145 was almost as much as my ride alone ha

that was before i got my 2002 medium, so there's my old 20" alpha power ride there instead

and no kick pedal, for some reason. i wonder where it was? i never noticed that before

cool. how'd you never notice a missing pedal, its fairly vital on the kit

never noticed it in the pic, i wonder why i removed it? it probably broke, my pedal has a tendancy to do that; the nut that holds the beater in place is bollocks

that happens on my double bass pedal sometimes. it really pisses me off when i'm half-through a kickass song and the pedal either falls off or rattles loosely :mad:

yeah, its almost as annoying as the cymbal stand becoming loose and collapsing (i.e. my last gig)

Those cymbals aren't great to be honest.

Any Paiste and Zildjians Avedis & K ranges are the way to go.

Zildjians ZBT's

Zildjian ZBT's are awful.

Ugh. I have ZBT's and I am fed up with them. Their sound is horrible.

13" ZBT hats
18" ZBT Crash/Ride (used as crash)
14" ZBT Crash
20" Sabian B8 ride (I got it used for $45! :D )

My drums are falling apart too. My upper tom is broken and both (yes, both) of my snares broke. It sucks.

im still thinking about those floor toms...i would like to hear someone explain to me why its better to have the toms thier then on the rack.

it's not a case of it being 'better', it just feels more comfortable for me, and the first one isn't techinically a floor tom; it's just my second mounted tom on a separate stand and tuned fairly low.

for the time i used this set up i found it must more easy to use, as i like my drums fairly close together and in front of me - my ride i like to have almost directly in front of me (as can be seen in the pic), and this cannot be easily achieved with both mounted toms there.

However, the 2 toms to me right didn't last very long, and i'm back to the classic 1 mounted tom/1 floor tom set up. Much, much easier to use.

And agreed with Joe - Paiste really is the way forward. it'll cost you a packet, but last you a buggering life time.
