I do that sometimes with a 6" A myself. Works great.

I've been having way more Bass GAS than drum gas the past couple of years. Recently I've been having cymbal gas again. I just pulled the trigger on my first cymbal purchase in years. A friend had a Paiste Sinature 12" splash and 14" full crash, I picked them both up for $200.

I usually use larger cashes these days, either two 18"s or an 18" and a 17". I'll throw a small crash or splash in the mix for contrast.

Most of my splashes are quite dark. I wanted something that would work better with my Paistes.

As far as logos, if that have them it doesn't bother me. If they are faded of gone it doesn't bother me either.

Yeah, I just fell off the wagon. I purchased a 70's vintage Zildjian 18" cymbal. It's very thick - just the way I like it. Crashes fairly easily under my 2B sticks yet is still heavy enough to serve as a light ride. If I were using light sticks it wouldn't be crashable at all. I moved it to my "favorite cymbal" position, just over the hi-hat.

I listed some of by other stuff on Ebay as well. Whenever I buy some new toy, I sell some old toy I haven't used in a while.

I just bought some new cymbal felts. I felt so decadent ..... Clown

Darn it! That Ebay "auto bid" feature just bid on another cymbal! Smile

I was outbid...but at least maintained the strength of my convictions to let it go as I watched the seconds tick away. Sad

I'm not familiar with the auto bid function, but it sounds like something I need to avoid anyway.

The "auto bid" feature is unique to my Ebay account and automatically orders things that I REALLY, REALLY like, even if I already have too many toys! Smile
