The last 48 hrs I’ve been watching and reading up about the cymbal packs and it seems rather confusing, lol.
I know my way around my Roland v drum kits but during the setup for the school concert last Thursday I played around on the Ludwig Breakbeats kit an I like the compact size and tight kit sound so I decided to get one. I have a couple of the good hihat stand already also plenty of mounts and clamps.
The set up is the LA style 4 piece 1 up/1 down with 20” ride low on the 2nd Tom location. I like to play open handed style so the hi-hat will be low and hoping to get an 18” crash that can double as a ride above the hihat.
I won’t be recording with these but I do have a few killer mics who knows, lol.
I know nothing about acoustic cymbals and brands.
I appreciate and value your input as it’s one less thing for me to research. More importantly, I don’t know what I don’t know, all I’ve been using so far are straight from my drum modules and they don’t sample the budget mass production models, a few models I recognized were about $500+ a piece, lol.
Like the title said my budget is about $400 but if there’s a killer deal at $500 I won’t let that get in the way.
Thanks for your participation.
