What brand is better?

-Headline "brass quality"
-16" Crash Symbal
-20" Ride Symbal

OR

-Camber
-with same size

The thing is, a guy borrowed my cymbals(headline) and lost them. He now offers Camber cymbals in return. Due to the fact that I am selling my drum set, I want to know which is more "valuable", so I can get any cash difference in the quality/price.

Anyone got a rough price estimate on those brands?

Appreciate all responds.

Thanks, selvik.

Since no one else has replied to this, I'll give it a shot. Do you mean Headliner? The suggested retail (based on a search) is mid 200's for a set of high-hats, 16 crash and 20 ride. The only price I could find for a similar set of Camber cymbals was on ebay: $119

excellent response Henry! I had never heard of headliner cymbals. Is that some beginning brand of a major manufacturer?
 Believe it or not I've tried some Camber cymbals and wasn't pleasantly surprised by the quality.

Yes, as a very, very amateur drummer (although I've been listening to drums all my life so maybe my lack of inexperience drumming is meaningless) Cambers are terrible. I've never played or heard much worse in my life. I had a set and ridded myself of them immediately. The crash was maybe the best of the hihats and ride but it was still bad. You had to hit the hi-hats hard to get even a crappy sound. Even though they're cheap, I'd just get ZBT over them.

I always encourage aspiring drummers to choose cymbals than sound "good" to them. 

There are often good bargains on used cymbals at major drum shops.  So you can often get "better sounding" cymbals with "prior experience" than you would get by purchasing new student line cymbals.
