Our drummer has those AAX-series crashes and I think they're great sounding cymbals.

i really think that depends on you style of playing. if you're a very hard hitter i recommend the zildjian z customs. i used to play them but i've since relaxed a bit behind the kit.

if you are a medium strength hitter and you want a clear crisp sound, the aax's work nicely and so do zildjian a customs.

i do recommend getting a z heavy power ride though for a really thick and prominent ride sound.

i have been plyaing for 14 years now, i'm not bullshitting just telling you my advice based on my experience. i've played all those cymbals i mentioned

Prefer Zildjian crashes. My Sabian AAX Stage Ride, however, is perfect!

I tried the K-Custom Dark Ride... fuck, that thing was nice, but really expensive. I don't have much experience with Zildjian... How are their other lines? Heard that A was OK.

4 cymbals in the AAX line will run me about 1K where as K-Custom 1500

Skip the Sabians. I would go with Meinl or Paiste cymbals.

A's are good for extreme metal with lots of bottom end in the music. They are bright so they help accent the drumming.

Yeah, Meinl and Paiste all the way! I played the Sabian Paragon Series on a other kit a few days ago, but the AAX`s are way better in my opinion, the Paragon sound is too dark.

I want the K-custom's but just cannot afford them. I am in the middle of doing a lot of mods on my motorcycle and that cost a lot too..
AAX it is I think. They're bright enough and not washy.

Who makes the best drum equipment for this type of music?

Like J.Read I think that a question like that in an interview would be ridiculous.

To discuss it with fellow musicians you know or people on a board like this is another thing though...

Yeah, I do agree. That question looks like something that would be in some sort of professional drummer magazine. Unless a drumming company paid them to ask that question, heheh!

I use Meinl's Byzance series cymbals..made of B20 Bronze Alloy...they are crisp as fuck. On one of my other kits. I use Paiste and Zildjian Avedis series cymbals. Drumming is like metal to me. It's an investment that still has not got old. 12 years later.

And I doubt that a drummer of his caliber uses Sabian B8 or something to that poor degree. I'm sure he has a preference as to what sounds good- found by playing not asking on a forum as I am haha

The best drum hardware and cymbals etc are those that compliment and support Marshall amps effectively. If your guitarist isn't playing through Marshall, it doesn't matter how great the rest of your gear may be. Cool
