QUESTION FOR ALEC: How do you like your Zildjian 20" crash of doom?? Would you buy it again?? What other trashy 20 inch cymbals did you consider before buying that one? As always, thanks again for the inspiration. -Harry

Hey Harry. I really like the crash. It's actually my second one (the first one cracked right away... I bought it used in Hollywood). It's definitely a super raw, dark sound but I've noticed it in tons of player's setups. Questlove has had one forever, Katy Perry's drummer, JJ Johnson... When I interned at Capitol I remember drummers would often have it in the studio. One time Stephen Perkins had a small kit with this as his only cymbal.

It sounds almost bad by itself but when you blend it with a band it sounds great out front where other A or A Custom type cymbals sound too bright. For me, I think of my cymbals like guitar effects where the Crash of Doom is my "overdrive" sound and the Sweet Ride is my "clean" sound

Alternatives to this would be any 20" thinner constantinople/kerope rides or Istanbul 20" rides.

Hopefully that helps. I'm definitely following the trend of big, dark cymbals but coming from the jazz world this is what sounds right in my head. I can't do ping rides and heavy crashes anymore.

i love the little smirk at the end of this, which says: "why, yes ... i'm a total badass."

+Harry Joiner Yep, agreed. They're the sort of questions I would have loved to have asked him had I been there. Nothing too smart-ass, just a bit about what it's like to be Gadd going into a studio, checking the chart, running it down etc.
