I think Mehmet is really doing some cool things these days, but I must admit I enjoy playing Zildjian Armand series. I thought the Paiste 602s sounded incredible at the NAMM show last January.

I love HHX Evolution crashes.
I was checking out the Zildjian 19 Armand “beautiful baby” with 3 rivets over the weekend. That sounds sweet.

That used to be my favorite, till I got the 18” Evolution.

I’ve got different favorites depending on which band I’m playing with.  The 17” K Hybrid is quite versatile.  I also love using my Paiste 2002 22” Power Ride with my blues band.

I have to go with Sabian AA.  I love my El Sabor 18”.  It has the best bell I have ever heard and is a great crash.  Peace and goodwill.

Hi!
My fave cymbals of all-time would have to be (all by Sabian) the 19” Paragon China, the 20.5” Chad Smith Explosion Crash, 13” HHX Stage Hats, 14” Paragon Hats, 9” Bozzio Radia Cup Chime, & the 11” Portnoy Max Splash!
It’s really interesting to see what other drummers out there consider to be their favorite ‘go-to’ cymbals!
