Very nice for a New Stamp. Very rare weight for a New Stamp. Not sure the light weight in a New Stamp pays such dividends Soundwise as it would in a IV or III II or I

New Stamps are like that middle ground Old K. Where thin--'is not that' earth-shaking .

Would I trade that even for my New Stamp 2877g ? I don't think so. Not what I heard there. And his touch wasn't that good for highlighting the Bell nor the side stick (which he didn't do) and the Crash of his was ..imo /inappropiate/ and rarely used/.
But no I wouldn't trade even.

I would like to hear one about 2360 (22" New Stamp)
Them New Stamps need a little meat to them
whereas the other stamps seem to revel more in low weights.

once the brass ceases to glitter, and the drum looses its luster, and the stage remains dark, all you have left is the timbre of family.

I like the ride sound -at least from what I can hear from this terrible recording. But the crash sound isn't very lovely at all.

I completely agree with that. I have one thin and one medium-ride type. The so called "heavy" is a favorite. Cymbals canh get to a certian thin-ness where they actually start tp loose tonality. The wash becomes a wall of white sound. A great cymbal is going to have a discernable notes of a musical chord in it.

I make little circles with the stick to find tone I like.
