MFW I'm probably the only drummer in the comments section.
That being said, you could hit a cymbal as hard as you could and it still wouldn't wobble like it was built out of jell-o.
Wuhan's are known for being that cheap, but most good cymbals aren't that thin because if they were all that thin they'd break within a day. lol
One of the weirdest things I've come across while playing is the reverberation from bigger cymbals. You could crash an 18-22" cymbal and while holding your thumb above the cymbal and you could feel the air just moving around your thumb. Kinda stupid, useless and bleh... but I found it cool.
Inb4 tl;dr red thumbs.
MFW I work in a reputable drum store in my city and go on Funnyjunk every day.
Yeah **** you man
On another note, generally all cymbals wobble like this when hit as people have already stated but cheaper cymbals like these ones, which are no more than a sheet cymbal (meaning they've been made out of the offcuts and pieces of metal that didn't cut the standard for more advanced cymbals), are going to be a lot less durable or not made as well as more expensive ones, which causes them to become nearly malleable.
That being said, buying expensive cymbals doesn't mean they're not going to be flimsy- it also depends on the size and make of cymbal as well. Always go for top notch brands like Zildjian, Sabian or Meinl
Hope my useless blabbering was helpful
It's the internet.
Nobody's gives a ****. In reality, you're probably some lonely unemployed 18 year old (being generous here, chances are you're under 16), who still is dependant of mommy and daddy.
You're probably "that guy" that shows up - pretending to be an expert on every point you argue, when in reality you're irrelevant to anything outside your bedroom.
Good day, from a very friendly anon. :-)
I'm seventeen, I've been drumming since I was twelve and while yes, I'm still an amateur and I'm nowhere near professional, my product knowledge is a lot more expansive then a lot of drummers that I know.
Personally I'm insulted, I never try to brag more than I know- if I don't know something I'm honestly going to ask someone more experienced for help. I'm not 'pretending' to be anyone I'm telling the honest truth.
Another thing, I labelled it "useless blabbering" for a reason. Nobody has to give a **** or respect my opinion: It's information that's there to be taken or left.
Politely **** yourself
p.s. I'm not lonely I'm not bad looking and I have a mean circle of friends so in ur face u silly willy
So Mr. kenzyleggatti, would you be able to help me out!?
I'm in need of some new cymbals, a crash and high-hats, I was thinking something from the Sabian B8 series, they sound pretty and aren't too expensive for their quality.. Is there anything you'd recommend instead?
Can't tell if you're
ing, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.
Stay away from the lower brand cymbals from all companies. (Zildjian ZBT/ZXT/ZHT - Paiste Pst3/Alpha - Sabian B8/Xs20 - Meinl MCS - etc etc.
The only way you're going to find the correct sounding cymbals for YOU, is to go into a local music shop and bang on their cymbals.
You might also want to check out (used) cymbals.
I've got an 8 piece VSX and a 5PC MCX, and I can't stand new cymbals. They sound too brash and not warm.
In my opinion I don't actually like the B8 series, they're too harsh and not really fine tuned I guess. But then again I'm a sucker for warm and soft sounding cymbals ahue. It really depends on what sound you want and what type of music you play. So go ahead and tell me, it could be that it'd be cheaper to buy a cymbal pack and still get a nice sound then to buy a full set separately
Yeah, I suppose playing alternative rock/punk kind of stuff that's the sound you're looking for. And those cymbal packs are basically what convinced me to get some, ahaha :p
It's not that it's a cheap cymbal, this is what all cymbals look like in slow motion.
MFW I'm probably the only one who plays a common musical instrument on a website with thousands of daily viewers.
Yeah **** you too.
"guise, im drum people. you not."
You're propably wrong :P All cymbals wobble that's how they make the sound. You just don't see it irl only in slow mo like in this picture. Also wuhan 16'' china's are the ****!
I use a meinl china 18" byzance.
?Don't hurt me for self whoring.
