Seriously Maarten, why do you keep giving away free samples? At this rate you're gonna give the whole library! I was sold after just the FIRST freebie. Little things like the grand casa/cymbal crash combination and dampened gong hits are fantastic. The one sustained cymbal crash you also provided is THE cymbal crash sound I've been looking for - and I have 10+ crash cymbals to choose from.
Great stuff! Judging from the few samples I've heard of it, that timpani is easily the best sampled timpani I've ever heard - it actually has some air to it, it's not just dead thuds like many libraries have.
