> > > Blind Test, Quiz 1: Budget Ride Cymbals

Drummers and Drummerettes! With this post, we launch a new series of quizes we collectively call “Bind Tests“, which we are preparing in co-operation with Avant Drum Shop. For the next 12 months, every week, we will offer you one short quiz, where your task is to correctly identify instruments only by ear, based on an audio recording. There will be a non-cash prize for each weekly edition.



Here is the first quiz, in which you are kindly asked to make your choice out of three budget ride cymbals: 20″ Paiste PST3 Ride, 20″ Meinl HCS Ride and 20″ Istanbul Agop MS-X Ride. How does it work?

  1. Visit the http://slepetesty.beatit.tv/en web page
  2. Enter your personal details
  3. Get acquainted with the Quiz Rules and accept them
  4. Having gone over to the next page, identify sample A and B and choose the one, the sound of which you like best
  5. Get a confirmation of your participation on the e-mail address you previously stated in your personal details.

The prize in the first edition is a pair of Ahead 5A sticks, which we have sponsored ourselves. Drawing results will be announced this Friday.


Join the fun!
