Mas matibay ang XS20... pakiramdam ko parang brittle ang bakal ng B8 e.

I dunno about tibay nila, pero parang mas malakas ang sound ang xs20 kesa b8.  Mas gusto ko hats and splashes ng b8pro kasi cutting.  Mas ok naman sa akin ang ride and crash ng xs20 kasi parang mas buo ang tunog.

^^agree. Plus, technique can make an average cymbal sound better than how much it costs.  :)

Kung pang rehearsal lang... I'd go for durability over sound. Pag gig... I'd still go for durability, pero my consideration set has to be the "standards".... kumbaga yung mga not really far from each other and sonically significant as far as the local gigging situation is concerned. This includes unmiked drums, crappy acoustics, and the like.

Example... because I play with a heavy rock band, I don't mind gigging with Sabian B8 hats if I can't afford New Beats, kasi maraming bars use takip ng Nido for hats (figuratively, of course).  Lesser "evil", kumbaga. I mean, there must be women who look better than Whitney Tyson but worse than Ashley Judd that I'd surely like to date.  

The ultimate end-goal, of course, is to own a set of cymbals I think matches the sound that I have in my head.  Ipon na lang as time goes on. But since medyo matagal-tagal pag-ipunan ang isang pirasong cymbal (given the eco situation sa Pinas), I'd rather be able to gig with something workable, than not gig waiting for the ideal.

hehe, yup tama ka. siguro naconscious lang ako kasi i've already broken 2 cymbals, both are crashes. so siguro mejo napunta lang sa head ko yung durability. =)

darn, magkano nga ba ang 16" xs20 crash? malas, sa ngaun i only have 2500php, kailangan mag-ipon muna, hehehe. looks like its going to be a while before i can fully get to play my drumkit again as a whole. owels, gudluck na lang sakin. =)

thanks nga pala dun sa mga replies.

bro inigo, nicely said. =)

hihihihi, wala. ang current cymbal set-up ko ngaun ay:

14" zbt hi-hats = so far, i like the sound. pero i really don't know what sounds good from bad. hehe.

16" zbt crash = cracked na, maliit na crack pa lang kaya ndi pa gaano affected yung sound.

18" paiste innovations crash-ride = so far, ito pinakamahalagang cymbal ko. hehe, astig rin yung sound niya, parang pang-professional na rin, kahit newbie lang ako, hihihihi.

ayan, wala akong pangpalit sa crash, kasi kapag ginawa kong crash yung paiste ko, wala na akong ride, so i really need a new crash. hehe.

onga pala, mukhang lamang na yung xs20 ah. hihihihi

XS20 is better for me, soundwise. Medyo namamahalan nga lang tlaga ako sa kanya.

you might also want to check out 2nd hand cymbals and zildjian cymbals on sale sa JB.  You can get new Beats 14" + 20" K ride for 17-18K if you watchout for good deals

pahabol uli na tanong. =)

are xs20's cast cymbals? if so, ito ba yung mga tipong cymbals na gumaganda ang tunog habang tumatagal? hehe.
