Hi everyone! I'm new here! Awesome web site!

:twisted:

Usage: R-Recording, L-Live, B/U-Back Up

14" Paiste Signature Hats(R,L)
8" Sabian Pro Splash(R,L)
18" Paiste Signature Full Crash(R,L)
18" Paiste Signature Power Crash(R,L)
20" Paiste Signature Full Crash(R,L)
20" Paiste Signature Bright Ride(R,L)
18" Paiste Signature Riveted Flat Ride(R,L)
20" Paiste Signature Thin China(R,L)
14" Paiste Signature Riveted China(R,L)

For live, some recording, and back up:
14" Sabian Thin Crash(R)
14" Sabian AA hats(B/U)
18" Zildjian Z Rock Custom Crash(L,R)
19" Zildjian Z Rock Custom Crash(L,R)
18" Zildjian Z Custom Crash(L,R)
19" Zildjian Z Projection Custom Crash(L,R)
20" Zildjian Z Custom Ride(L,B/U,R)

Depending on the venue, project, style of playing, and personal desires, any one of the "Live" cymbals could used but, not all are used at the same time...lol. That would be a cluster.

There are a few more but, I'd have to go through the cases and see what they are. I'm a pack rat when it comes to cymbals. I've had the Sabian splash and AA hats since I first started playing.

I'm really looking to dive into some darker rides for recording as well...kind of Matt Chamberlian with Tori Amos sounding.

Take care everyone!

I pretty much have a mirror image thing going on on my set. from the inside out i have

two 8" A custom splashes (as we all know no 2 cymbals sound alike)
16" and 17" A custom crashes
14" AAX and 18" K custom chinas
14" A custom mastersound and 14" vintage zildjian Hi-Hats

My rides a 22" K custom

I have 16" and 18" Z custom crashes stacked on a cymbal stacker on the right side near my ride

an upside-down zil-bel on my hi-hat clutch

and two 10" china splashes (one zildjian a with rivets, and one made from an inside out zbt splash) on the far left and right sides of the kit

theres a picture of it 3 inches to the left
