Are we talking just in drums and gear? or like Roth IRA’s and real estate? lol
in the first case, a full set of at least halfway decent cymbals.

I plan on buying a couple of new K cymbals and a new double pedal. Maybe a new stage lighting system as well.

I’m always looking for a new ride, but can never find one I like enough to cough up the cash.
Any ideas on a ride with good ping AND great wash/crash?

The new Paiste Alpha Brilliant Metal ride looks promising.

Real estate for me. I consider drums and percussion an expense. Very few drums and percussion actually result in being an investment. Now, I plan on a few percussive expenses. I am currently waiting for a Matt Smith bongo. I would also like to get a Master Helmi tombak and an Elman Percussion riq in the next few years. Add to that a couple of Matt Nolan cymbals. I have my eyes on some Volcano congas too.

Ah, but they are an investment in your sound, aren’t they?

Not looking to make any large outlay for gear in the next year, I can recommend a Sabian AAX Stage Ride.  Mine is a 20” and has a great ping, awesome bell tone and great wash.  Really not a bad sounding crash when hit hard.
After buying my new Ludwig Epic shell pack this year I am drum rich and cash poor for the immediate future.

I will get a Sabian AAX OMNI 18” as soon as the local stores get them.  I cannot remember ever being so enthusiastic about a new instrument.  If I like as much as I hope, I will trade in most of my other cymbals and get the AAX OMNI 22”.  Peace and goodwill.

I’ll make sure to post a video demo of the Omni tomorrow night. Be sure to check back.

Hey Mark,

Here’s a link to the interview I did with Mark Love, Sabian’s master cymbalsmith, about the invention of the Omni series. Here’s the link:

Im tryin to decide right now between an spd-s and a td-20/s. I realize there is a slight price difference which is what my problem is. I can afford both but if I get the td-20 you have to buy alot of extras (ex. Software trigger pads cords) but if I just go with the spds I could prob mic my kit too. So is it worth the extra money for the td-20?

Any help would be great. I no the spds’ interface was created at MIT. Is it confusing?  And if anyones worked with the td-20 are there that many better features and more sounds that constitute its price tag?

Thanks for the video.  What do you think, if the AAX does well in 2011, they’ll make it in HHX for 2012 NAMM?  That’s what I want to hear.
