comparing with the price, quality, at yung tibay nito, which makes the better brand po?

istanbul
stagg or
meinl

who has the best sound
what's the cheapest
what breaks easily

q: which has the best sound?
a: istanbul or meinl, depending on whether you prefer your cymbals to be old school (istanbul) or new school (meinl). even meinl's traditional line, byzance, is cleaner and more shimmery (ie, more modern sounding) than istanbuls.
however, the real answer is whichever your ear likes best. istanbul and meinl have excellent track records when it comes to sound, while stagg is more inconsistent. it's not out of the realm of possibility for one to like stagg more than istanbul or meinl, though.

q: which is the cheapest?
a: stagg, overall. but istanbuls are being sold for ridiculously cheap, especially considering that these are the real deal, genuine turkish cymbals. meinl, on the other hand, is OBSCENELY OVERPRICED. PhP 42,000.00 for a 22" ride?! please.

q: what breaks easily?
a: whichever one you abuse the most. claims that a brand or alloy is more durable than another are just myths propagated by the said brand's manufacturer / alloy's user to push their product. any cymbal regardless of size and weight, provided that they are manufactured precisely, will survive for a lifetime if used correctly.

malapit na malapit sa regular K ng zildjian pero 1 crash lang kasi yung natest ko kaya di ko alam kung consistent yung sound quality

walang gongy or thrashy overtone na common sa wuhan at stagg. turkish na turkish ang tunog

how about sa durability?
holding others constant?
kasing tibay ng bato? sing tatag ng isang bloke ng semento?

Durability? Tama si Pao too early to tell.

Pero from my experience, I lend my Sultans to my friend who played and used it in ULTRA. He's using a 5b sticks and after an hour of bashing, may mga slight dent na sha. Nakikita ko lang yung mga dent na ganun sa Sheet bronze like ZBT crashes. Maybe yung metal nya is different from the Big three.

Excperience ko lang. Wag gamitin sa Big venues ang sultans

Bro for church use, ano mairerekomend mong crash?. Walang mics yung drums namen, kaya kapag maingay na praise hndi ba madaling mabasag yun istanbul?

Balak namen kase bumili ng crash cymbal kase nasira (after 15 years) yung Zildjian Scimitar Crash Cymbal. Magpapalit kame ng crash ngayon. And nasa utak ko nang irecommend yung Istanbul Crash Cymbal na Radiant. Php 4,900 less 10% ngayon sa Lazer e

okay yang radiant bro..

hindi mo na need paluin ng malakas kasi bright naman siya tumunog..

and kung ano ang sound niyan, kahit gaano kalakas mo pa paluin lalo ganun padin dahil yun lang ang kaya niyang i-produce na sound.. extra info lang natutunan ko sa new teacher ko.. haha! master!

anyway..

nasa pag palo mo padin yan bro..

pero syempre factor padin yung durability..

iba na din ang may pangalan ngayon(zildjian,sabian,paiste,meinl) so expect natin na mas madali sila masira o ndi siya ganun katibay kahit tama ang pagpalo..

pasensya na medyo magulo hirap i explain..

try lang tumulong..  :-D
hahah..

Kahit gawin pang 20K ang isang set, big bang for a pinoy drummer's buck pa rin! Two weeks nang nakalagay Sultan Set ko hindi ko pa pinapalitan!
