    Both of the cymbals are medium-thin, so there is not a huge difference, but the sweet ride's ping is a little brighter so it should come through a little better than the K dark's. The dark ride will be a little easier to crash though when compared to the sweet ride because it's a tiny bit smaller cymbal, and the dark ride has a little less weight because of it. But one thing with Zildjian's rides especially, is that they tend to have a quite big scale of "acceptable" weights for a given cymbal. E.g. a quick youtube search shows K custom dark 22" rides ranging from 2410 grams to 2889 grams, and A sweet rides ranging from 2746 grams to 3025 grams. So you never know what kind of unit you're getting unless you can try them out in person or purchase from a place that sells the cymbals by weight. But the best thing to do is probably just listen through a ton of them, and getting an opinion which cymbal generally sounds better to your ears. I'm currently playing an 23" A Custom 25th anniversary medium-thin ride (which is very similar to an A sweet ride, the A Custom just has a little smoother lathing and a brilliant finish on top), and it's by far my most favourite and most versatile ride cymbal I have played. It crashes easily, it's got a good wash but the stick definition still comes through, and the bell is bright and cutting. I played around with a 22" K Custom dark ride about a month ago, and it's ping was definitely a little darker when compared to my A custom 23", but it wasn't too far off.

    Yeah definitely happy that he added china cymbal again!, He also switched his hi-hats from K light 15" to K Sweet hats (most likely 15", but size is unconfirmed) and his ride back to the 23" A Sweet ride (Dom had K light ride 22" for the ST promo shows, K Constantinople 22" thin overhammered for most of the U.S. tour and K Custom special dry ride [no idea of the size, probably 21"] for the last show of the U.S. tour) Kinda depends what type of sound you are going for. Both are pretty versatile, washy and easily crashable. From my experience, the K custom dark has a little less ping and stick definition and is darker (as the name implies) than the A Sweet. The A Sweet ride is a little more pingy and the bell is a little more cutting. Dom used the K custom dark for the entire T2L tour and the A Sweet for the entire Drones tour, if you preferred the ride sound in one of those eras over the other. In case if you want something that is a lot more pingy and cutting (but less crashable) similar to older Muse songs/tours, something like 22" K Custom medium ride or 22" A custom ride would fit better for that kind of purpose. It would be good if you have the possibility to try both of them in person, but it's also good to listen to sound samples from youtube (Memphis drum shop has a ton of cymbal demo videos)
  3. I JUST SAW DOM AND I SAID ”Hi Dom” TO HIM AND HE SAID HI TO ME AS WELL, the best moment of my life!!! Matt and Chris plus some other people were woth him, but I got so shocked that it was all that I could get out of my mouth
  4. Just went to the box office and asked about the tickets. The tickets are available for collection at 4pm
  5. Alright thanks! I’ll probably go to the box office some time in the morning already to see if they give them earlier or if they know a time when, and I’ll update here what they’ll say
  6. Does someone know when the tickets are available for collection from the box office? The order confirmation mentions only that the tickets are available for collection on the day of the event, but doesn’t mention any specific time.
  7. THANK YOU SO MUCH for posting this! Finally managed to grab a second ticket!
  8. I'm pretty sure that they'll make the set a little special, it's still a charity gig at a fairly small venue. I think Showbiz and a live debut from ST could make it to the set at least. This is not a rehearsal pic, but Dom's drum tech (owner of Q Drums) seems to be back in Europe again at least, so maybe they started today or they could start tomorrow? Has anybody ever succeeded in getting tickets from Twickets for this gig? Every time a new listing comes up and no matter how fast I've been, they are always reserved for another buyer already. Do they really go all in just few seconds?

    Yes, gone are the 14" floor tom and 18" china cymbal. From the research that I've made, his kit's and other gear's specs at the moment are the following: Q Drum Co. mirror polished stainless steel drum kit (or Copper kit for the last U.S. shows, or Black mahogany/poplar/mahogany with brass inlays for the last European festival shows respectively) 22" x 16" kick (24" diameter kick for the Copper) 12" x 9" rack tom 16" x 16" floor tom 18" x 16" concert tom (no bottom head) Various Q metal snares, usually 14" x 7" Gentleman Copper. Other snares include 14"x7" Plate Aluminum, Gentleman Aluminum and Gentleman Brass. 2 x Q custom-made light up electronic drum pads (that replaced the ribbon crasher and tambourine) Zildjian cymbals: 15" K light hi-hats 19" K Custom dark crash (or K Sweet crash with the copper kit at the last U.S. and Mexico shows) 22" K light ride 20" A Custom EFX Remo drumheads: Powerstroke 3 (clear on kick batter and coated on concert tom) Controlled sound coated with center dot (snare) Coated Emperors (tom tops) Clear Ambassadors (tom bottoms) Hazy snare size Ambassador (snare side) Custom clear kick front head with Simulation Theory text 2 x Roland PD-8 pads Roland SPD-30 octapad Combination of Roland RT-30 and 2Box triggers for kick, snare, and toms DW 9000 hardware, hi-hat stand, throne, and pedals Remo quick lock hi-hat clutch M1 Snareweight dampener Vic Firth AJ2 sticks
  10. Those were some expensive tickets. It was also rather annoying to start choosing sections for the seated areas one by one, and try to find seats. Managed to get one luckily for stalls seating. I wanted to go standing, but the SBE crowd at the front was just too crazy to experience again. Wouldn't probably be as crazy at RAH as SBE though. Very happy to be going nevertheless!
  11. Thanks! Sorry for the late reply Your version is really good, you are a talented dude! --- I've made a few more Muse covers recently, Something Human: Fury (I chose to use the live audio from Montreux 2016 version)
  12. Now that Muse played Eternally Missed again at the request show, I decided to make a drum cover of it. Dom played the fill leading to the chorus, and the choruses a little differently compared to the studio version. I used both ways through the cover, and added a few things here and there!
  13. Yeah this is awesome! Good luck for everyone who can attend, the SBE was the best night of my life, but I'll have to pass this one. We really need more live debuts/songs that aren't performed in ages, I'm really hoping they would play Eternally Missed at least. FAWY, Exo-Politics, Exogenesis, Big Freeze, ... there are so many great songs, will be interesting to see the voting list
  14. I really like this one! I enjoyed this a lot more than Dig Down, especially Dom’s drumming is very nice (the handclap samples not the most fitting for the song though), but the tom groove is cool. Matt’s vocals sound great and I can already imagine that this song is going to be a killer live, especially Chris’ woahs. Don’t see this as a Fury 2.0 though, but a good song
