Nah it doesn't really grow on you, I've had a TD-4 for over 4 years now. They're never going to feel like a real cymbal on any kit (except for maybe the super-expensive and horrible sounding gen16s)...

The reason for him saying that is that changing temperatures can cause the wood to warp, leading to bad stuff like not being able to fit heads on, uneven bearing edges etc. which will ruin the sound...

I think you could do a lot worse than Mapex - the Armoury would probably be a good pick since it covers a lot of bases. Has hybrid Maple/Birch shells, which does mean it occupies a good middle ground...

Go with your gut, but I normally avoid rock sizes because I think they sound clunky and aren't really any more durable than thinner models. However, having never bought any there's no guarantee this...

Yeah I think the best idea is to try and get as many pro-level used cymbals as you can afford, since it will save for you in the long run. I'd try and get hats and a ride first (espeically if you...

Well first off, I'd definetely recommend the XS20s over the ZBTs, just because the XS20s are made of much better bronze (B20 rather than B8), which is what basically all high level cymbals (excluding...

It's workable, although the smallest I've gigged with has been that + hi hat and floor tom. I find that you can substitute the closed hi-hat with rim clicks, and open hi hat by riding on the crash...

Is this guy a troll or...?

But yes, I'd say this is nearly the pinnacle of what you could get. Top-of-the-line kit, the same with the cymbals. I'd be very happy if someone bought this for me,...

Hehehe not by a long way. Cymbals at least $3000 (assuming you're buying them new), you could probably half that if you found all the stuff used.

That kit has been discontinued, but the nearest...

You shouldn't really need to communicate that much if you've rehearsed enough. In this case, a nod or eye contact should really be enough to serve as a reminder. :)

Not often, really I only play with brushes for acoustic sets (and then I still don't use 'proper' brush technique then). I just feel that there's no point of coated heads if the area you're striking...

Since you're sticking with acoustic guitar, it probably makes sense that the drummer uses brushes or rods or something, rather than sticks. A small kit, e.g. a 3-piece (small bass drum, snare drum,...

An 18" really is a jazz size. It'll be punchy, but it won't tune low at all and will more than likely be too quiet for metal. You may just about get away with a 20", but ideally you'd want 22"...
