I'm using the following right now for studio and for live performances:
14" Paiste Alpha Medium Hi-Hats
16" Paiste Alpha Thin Crash
10" Paiste Alpha Splash
18" Paiste 2002 Crash
20" Paiste ColorSound 2000 Ride (Red)
18" Paiste 2002 China (Late 1980's model)

I've got a whole stack of other cymbals I could pile on but this config is more than enough for "daily driver" use. :)
