No, I didn't buy any Jimmysticks there either. The name was too off-putting to me so I bought some Vic Firths. And I've been playing them ever since.

I recently sold a Kashian 20" ride and 16" crash on eBay (UK).

The crash was nothing too special, slightly thick / heavy, maybe OK for heavier rock - still way better than modern some entry-level offerings.

The ride, however, was pretty decent - nice low-pitched, well-defined ping. It would've been a keeper if I hadn't been having a clearout.

Vic Firths are so yesterday, passe, done. JimmySticks are happening, today, hip and just plain cool. These sticks are built to Jimmy's exacting standards. Don't miss the boat on these!

I agree, the ride does sound pretty awesome, and I'm really happy with it. It has a sweet tone. The 18" crash/ride does sound brighter and it is rather thick and heavy weighing in at 1814 grams. Maybe because it's also a ride? I'm not sure. It is a loud crash for sure. Has a pretty decent ride sound however.

If I get a chance I'll post a sound file soon.

Thanks for asking, but I can't seem to upload an audio or video. My phone records audio in mp3 and the video is mp4, but the site doesn't seem to let me upload either.

I think I have it now. This might work.

Excuse the lousy sound, it's just a little mic on my cell phone and nothing else. I almost don't want to post it because they sound a lot better live.

Edit - if it doesn't connect on the first try, it does on the second...for some reason.

Never have played a Kashian cymbal.
During the last six months I have bought a few new crashes , 2 of these are "Rotocast" Ufip's & are without doubt the most beautifully functioning & sounding cymbals that I have ever owned. The Ufips have replaced some 2002 Paistes that I was just tiring of. I would recommend anyone in the market to consider & audition some Ufips.

Cheers
John

Yep, that's exactly what my ride sounded like - surprisingly good, isn't it?
