    Yes..I think this topic is very informative and beneficial for drummers out here. My Opinion.

    When buying Cymbals, Sound is very subjective to each so is Brand Preference as quoted, couple with the facts - Budget and types of genres we play. No one Cymbal fits all Genres.

    Most drummers does change Cymbals. I started out buying a Kit with "Package Cymbals" which are cheaper but in brand new condition (cause I didn't know anything about Cymbals - also I do not have the $$$$ at that time)....that's fine - If I knew I would rather buy Resale Better Cymbals (as you said - we loose less $$$, when we resell it couple with the facts that Cymbals Prices are increasing each year).

    If we do not intend to change cymbals (TOO OFTEN)...then buy the Best Cymbals according to our preference (Brand, Sound, Genres Of Music We Play)......not based on the price we have to pay.

    For example, say "Zildjian" is our Brand Preference...then buy Zildjian. If we love "K Constantinople Series"...then buy K Con...not A or K or other range within Zildjian.....If we can get a resale one at a good offer - then go for it. MOney not enough - then save up to buy them....that way, we are happy and we get what we prefer in our Cymbal Selection.

    Just my Personal opinion.

    thanks for the additional input on this.hmm...if only i could re-arrange posts such as this to the front part of the topic,that'll be even better.

    i do agree with your opinion but it seems that not too many people in the drumming community have the same type of mentality

    to me ah...
    its all based on the drummer him /herself lah.
    Its what tone your looking for.
    if you're looking for a sound like HHX legacy crash, but you don't have the cash for it...
    then you've gotta work your way around it lah. like buying a dark cymbal like the Lazer 16" crash and hammering to tone.

    but my thought on cymbals would all depend on the drummer lah.
    if you like a certain tone, thats it.
    don't just go for a cymbal like a Paiste just because people around you are going for it.
    you've got to really like the sound and the way it looks, its all in the satisfaction. if you're not satisfied, don't get it.

    cheers.

    the thing is ah...
    its that most people just buy cymbals because they read on forum that its good lah...
    then see people around them buy also.
    but then go back home and play ah...
    wah the cymbal sound like nonsense...
    so its alot on how you actually want your cymbals to sound.
