Welcome to the forum. We encourage the use of entire words when posting, since those words will stay around for a while.

Why don't you take some time to read some threads here? I think you'll find our discussions tend to go a bit deeper that "what/who is the best?"

Hi.
As has been said, full length words are appreciated. There are members from countries far and wide whose first language is not english.
It'll just make life easier.
As to cymbals.
It really is a massive subject. There is no way of saying what you should have bought or which cymbals are best.
Neil Peart prefers Paragons, Matt Chamberlain, Istanbul Agops, Kenny Aronoff likes Zildjian. All the well known cymbal companies make great cymbals.
Look around the forum and read a few past cymbal topics perhaps.  :)

Hello, gentlemen I know that this topic has probably come up many times in the past, but I'd like to hear your opinion. What cymbals do you find to have the best sound? I'd appreciate it if you'd post pictures as well!


I currently use a Zildjian ZBT 10" splash and Zildjian 14" crash cymbals. (I will upload pictures of my cymbals as soon as I'm able)
Fixed.

There will be hundreds of threads on cymbals in the history of this forum...you can dig them all up but using the search feature, so try searching for 'cymbals' or something more specific in the search box above.

Of course, if you want to know something more specific that maybe hasn't been covered before, I'm sure people will be more than willing to help you out. It might help to try speaking in proper English though.

Welcome to the Cafe.

Don't depend on sound files unless you are using an e-kit, All Cymbals are different.

I can recommend to drummers and sufferers of cymbalitis young and old,this book that may put some questions at rest regarding cymbals.

The Cymbal Book by Hugo Pinksterboer.

It will not tell you specifically what to use, but does give you an informed decision and incite into this incredible instrument.

I think it best to listen to other drummers live that play similar music to yourself, and find sounds you enjoy. This lets you hear the cymbal in action.This will get you into a ball park of where to start looking amongst the confusing range of cymbals out there. In no way copy another drummers set up, unless it is just perfect for yourself too.
This of course is going to depend on what you have already.
I tend to avoid brand hype, and have a mix of all major manufacturers in my set ups, personal chioce.
