    Wow, those new Meinl cymbals are fantastic! Reminds me a little of Istanbul 30th or Paiste Trad/Masters. Classy looking.

    I appreciate the sound should matters the most, but I'm still interested in how cymbal companies identify their respective products and categorize things.

    I wonder how Sabian's product lineup looks after it's all said and done (especially after they dropped the "Signature" series a few years ago).

    Zildjian seemed to simplify things by having sort of the "family" lines between the As and Ks. I still think the Avedis Vintage name was not the brightest move... I see people who run side businesses on Kijiji and Craigslist calling their regular As "Avedis" models. I would have called them Arams or Armands (noting that the originals Armands were modified As).

    Paiste confounds me in how they identify their products. I understand what each line-up offers (and why I rarely afford them), but it seems like they throw darts against a wall blindfolded when identifying their series.

    I've been curious if Paiste had been trying to get rid of the Signature line. It seemed quite a few models had been discontinued, and most of their energy seemed to be on their B20 offerings.

    Excellent. I can't see it on the site yet but that may be because its not been officially released just yet. Either way, I cannot wait to get one on my kit.

    It's a sectioned out ply so it looks like stave construction.. but on a ply... to relieve tension within the shell. Sonor was doing that since the 60's or 70's..up until Designer.. although the most recent stuff I believe they abandoned it.

    Who's there from the 24th on? I'll get some pics up if anybody needs - just msg me through DFO for specifics. I know there are a couple of cats that will do some long posts....I'd like to stick to say 5 specific requests that I can get down and dirty with. First five get it. I'll be with my stellar guitarist Ryan Fenno, my eldest son (37) who will be searching for a new bass, probably a custom shop PBass Natural to order through Brother Mike at his always buy from shop, Ye Olde Music Shop, in Hanahan, SC....man we have been doing business with Brother Mike for way over 25 years! Drums, guitars, bass, cymbals, vintage...Mike has it. Mike has been considering shutting down but I hope he never does!

    Hed to...
