Today I had the great pleasure to welcome Richard Spaven from London, England here at our cymbal factory (thanks to our mutual friend Ian Croft of iDrum Magazine for the referral and contact). We spent the whole day testing cymbals and ended up finding a great set for him.
Check it out:

Generation X 10" Drumbal
Richard is a phenomenal drummer; one of those guys you don't find very often. He's not a common name in the drummer's drummer scene yet, but I guess that will start to change very soon. Being able to watch him play today was an absolute pleasure. It put a big smile on my face.
