Also, I just added a Zildjian 16" A custom brilliant crash to my set up
And I have a Zildjian 20" EARTH Ride Brilliant finish. This has a large loud bell and the ride is all ping with incredible projection ... copy-1.jpg

15" A Zildjian hi-hat top from the 60's +
15" A Zildjian heavy hi-hat bottom from the 70's

sometimes 14" Bosphorus hi-hats, medium weight

16" K Zildjian dark thin crash

20" UFIP ride (not sure of the model name, but it's a medium-heavy weight, hand hammered, has a nice clear-but-not-overpowering bell sound, light enough to crash on a bit, kind of like a K Custom with a bit more sustain and lower pitch)

19" Sabian Vault crash with 3 rivets on the heavy side of the cymbal.
