I just listened to some of their sound files over very good speakers and liked what I heard. I'd love to hear them in person one of these days.

That would be cool. Go to www.thekootz.com and sign up for the mailing list. You'll get a weekly email telling you where we are playing. At the moment, I only have an Impression ride, but have two crashes on order that should be here in 5-6 weeks. The cymbals are custom made for me upon order, to my specifications. How great is that? I'll be playing down your way quite a bit in warmer weather.

Just keep in mind we have multiple members, so we rotate. The emails will tell you who is playing on the gigs, so just come when I'm on. Come up and say hello.

I also play in a Clapton tribute band called 461 Clapton Boulevard. We may be down your way at some point.

I'm endorsing Kashian Cymbals these days. But, I'm having a hard time getting in touch with anyone at the company. Nobody is picking up the phone! Got any tips Bob ?

Yes, I do. Look for more Kashian cymbals! They weren't bad at all. Certainly the Italian cymbals back then were the best and most reasonably priced alternative to Zildjians. I remember my drum teacher saying to me, "There's no choice. It's Zildjians or junk." He wasn't exactly right, of course. Today, there are so many choices. It's no wonder some drummers get confused.

I have an 18" crash ride dream bliss cymbal plus a 17" crash bliss cymbal. Both cymbals sound excellent and fit in well with my vintage 60's zildjians and 60's paiste cymbals. I got the dream cymbals with a premier kit i bought which i renovated and sold on. The dream cymbals i kept. As a player now for the past 50 yrs i do have a good varied stash. I get lots of various cymbals with kits i buy and sell. Im one of those drummers that say if it sounds good keep it regardless of name stamped on it.

Just purchased a Sabian AAX 17 inch X-Treme China cymbal and have been playing with it. It cost a bit more but I think I will definitely like the sound!

17” is a nice size for a China for some reason....I noticed a lot of used K ones out there...so,Zil feels that is a good size too..

I have had many,many China’s..and I think the best one I ever had was a very thin..Prototype,EAK 17 I picked up at Chicago Show maybe 15 years ago...

Neil Finn from Crowded House/Fleetwood Mac bought it from me..and uses it in the side project he did called Pajama Club.....Its in the song TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT...and he hits it twice in the first minute or two of the song...There is a video of the song..on YT with him playing a 1948 BDP RK Set he also bought at the same time....
