TIL during a live performance in 1965, The Kinks guitarist Dave Davies asked drummer Mick Avory "Why don’t you get your cock out and play the snare with it? It’ll probably sound better." In response, Avory knocked Davies unconscious with a cymbal and then fled the venue, thinking he'd killed him. walesonline.co.uk/news/wa…
My pride cymbal gloves from seavine came in today! WOOT WOOT
5 years ago I bought this drumset, 6 months ago I bought new cymbals, I couldn't be happier about where the drummer life is getting me
Recipe for going FULL ON 80s: start with a drum machine (preferably an 808 or something similar), then record kick & snare (for maximum mixing capabilities), then overdub hihat, followed by massive tom fills (add gated reverb to taste), top off with cymbals and perc. BOOM! v.redd.it/cw2yp6m8xo351
Picked up a new kit this weekend. Rented my dream cymbals to help me break it in.
TIL the Zildjian Company—the world's largest producer of cymbals—was founded in 1623 by Avedis Zildjian, an Armenian alchemist in Constantinople who ended up making a cymbal instead of gold. Now based in Massachusetts, the company is still being run by the 14th generation of Zildjian's descendants. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ave…

New cymbals! 18 inch dual crash, 15 inch dual hats, 21 inch polyphonic ride.
Scored a Sabian display rack someone was selling today. Now my cymbals that aren't in use have a place to call home instead of being stuck in bags! It's just so beautiful!
New cymbal day, the 18 crash hasn’t come yet 😢
New cymbal day! Danny Carey is a huge influence for me so I'm pumped to finally get a Dry Heavy Ride!
Trying to win an argument with a friend, zildjian isn't the only good cymbal brand, right?

Worst cymbal stand I ever had to use. 1/3 music stand, 1/3 cymbal stand, 1/3 rope?
New cymbal day, thanks unemployment!
New Cymbal Day. Adding a 3rd Crash cymbal (19" K Custom Special Dry) changed EVERYTHING for me!
$1000 For heavy metal cymbals, what should I get?
I have $1000 for hard rock and heavy metal cymbals. I've strongly considered paiste 2002 and Zildjian Is are also an option. I'm a huge fan of Nicko McBrain and Iron Maiden and maiden cymbals like cymbals would be nice. Ant reccomendations?
First load of my new pies turned up this morning. Got to love new cymbal day! :)
Pearl Reference Pure + Zildjian K Cymbals + Audix Dp7 mics = the sexiest drum corner ever!

My first “good” cymbal! A 20” K Cluster Crash
Got this second-hand toy and thought it was strange there was a lactating breast on it..... it’s a cymbal 😅
What are the best ride cymbals in 2020? I want to get a new one. I currently have a 20 inch Meinl ride that came with my set, but looking to improve on that. What do you guys think?
Kick followed by a reversed crash cymbal ?
In the track Modestep - Another Day (Ft. Popeska) (xKore Remix) it sounds like the very first kick is followed by a reversed crash which gives that nice initial "fullness". Can anyone give me some idea about how is it made ? I mean, is it just layering of two different samples + some reverb on crash or maybe something different ?
Ok drummers.... cymbals?
Zildjian, Paiste, Instanbul, Bosphorus (I know I’m forgetting other brands)
Which do you prefer?
What is the best distance to put between the cymbals on the Hi-hat? This is how It currently looks.
Working on a Travis Barker kit for the Roland TD-50 - really happy with how it's turned out! The drum production on this album is great. Mid-fill cymbal grabs are tough to nail too! v.redd.it/ig4f158ex4151
My new cymbals were a bit to heavy for my stand, so I quickly made some DIY weights
Both this and Uptown Funk took me 2 hours trying to FC only to confirm one thing. My ride cymbal is not working any suggestions for replacements?
TIL that on Prince's debut album, For You, he played every instrument on the album: 27 in all. Some notable mentions include, the electric guitar, clavinet, congas, waterdrums, electric piano, finger cymbals, hand claps and several other synthesizers. bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/articl…
Finally updated all my cymbals. I'll list the sizes and all in the comments.
Someone said they were amazing and sent me here! I make hair jewellery out of upcycled cymbals 🤘🏻
I've been social distancing for years with cymbals and toms and didn't know it...
Cymbal Stand Saves the Day
New cymbal day! Meinl Byzance Foundry Reserve 22" Light Ride
First post, longtime lurker. My Gretsch Brooklyn kit (6.5"x14", 9"x12", 16"x16", 18"x24") and Sabian cymbals (HH/HHX)
Just got my new crash mounted up, gonna try it out in a sec here! I lost my cymbal sleeve and neglected to replace it, even with duct tape, which is what killed my old crash. By the time I noticed, it was too late. Won't make the same mistake twice!
New cymbal day. Sabian AAX promotional cymbal pack
Need help assembling this inherited cymbal arm stand. No info, no brand, no manual.
How important is it to have cymbals all from the same set?
Hi , I am looking to upgrade my cymbals and on the recomendation of this subreddit I have been looking at used cymbals. I found a good deal on some Istanbul Mehmet Samatya Hi hats (14 inch) and Ride (20 Inch) . Im unsure if I should get them as I cant find a crash of the same brand and they dont seem very common so im unsure I will see one for a while. How important is it to have cymbals all from the same set. What are your thoughts?
Thanks for your help! (Any opinions on how good the cymbals are or possible replacements for the crash is also appreciated)
Hopefully not too soon but I found one of my favorite cymbals while cleaning up.
Help needed: Managed to get a cheap Xbone kit and was converting it to take quarter inch jack input. Got the cymbals working, but none of the pad wires are responding. I cut those from the kit while grounded and not one, and did sparse live testing. Everything else on the brain works.
Can anyone tell what this cymbal is? It has a faded Sabian logo on the back, and it looks like a 19 or 20. Inch maybe from the 70’s or 80’s. Any help would be greatly appreciated not sure if this is the right sub for this.
Trading two cymbals, a scroll, and a briefcase!
New to me cymbal day! Traded two old workhorses for this after I used it during a practice session. When did Zildjian stop using the sliiightly iffy “China Boy” label?
After ~10 years of not playing, I got a used DDrum Reflex Rally Sport kit off Reverb and some decent used A Custom cymbals from a local dealer. Good to be back in the game, now to remember how to play
First solder job at 15, broken electronic cymbal, quite proud of myself
Looking for cymbals ! (please hurry there is only four days left until the fair ground leaves!)
The day has come. NEW to me Cymbal has arrived!
How tight should cymbal wingnut be?
I was debating this with my bandmate last night. He’s a great drummer with 30 years experience and he really tightens down his cymbals so they have a lot less free movement. I told him I think this would likely cause them to crack more often since they can’t decay naturally. Wondering how other drummers feel about this.
His opinion is that they will crack regardless since you hit them with sticks over and over again
Basically my dream kit minus a few cymbal upgrades
I can't stop finding places to add cymbals please send help
Just found out the official cymbal glove company, seavine, started following me on Instagram today! Guess I did something right. Lmao
