August saw another good batch of shows with Taylormade as we clocked up the miles with the gigs spread around the UK including Bristol, Durham and Silverstone, while I also had an interesting request for my first ever possible interview / profile article. More on that later should it develop further...
I also got to pay a visit north of the border and while there, I stopped by my favourite cymbal shop in the UK, the Cymbal Centre (RWJ's) in Perth. It's always good to catch up with the UFIP guru Kevin 'Ecosse' and I had a special reason for visiting as I wanted to check out the new Blast Crash range that debuted at NAMM back in January.
I tried out a variety of sizes of the Blast range, along with the stunning 16" hi-hats (something for another day...) but I instantly fell in love with the 19" Blast Crash. Words fail me as to just how good this cymbal is to my ears. A soft warm China is as close as I can get, with it being a incredibly versatile cymbal, simply stunning!
