recently had our practice space broken into and emptied out, so i had to replace all of my stuff. went with some different cymbals, though:

15" A custom mastersound hats
19" Z custom medium crash
20" Paiste 1000 Rude ride/crash (already had and didn't lose this one. Whew! its an oldie, too!)
22" A custom ping ride

always playing with and changing my setup.

the only constants are are these:
13"sabian aax fusion hats
6" zil bel (inverted, on stacker above ride)

others make there way in and out of the line-up depending on my mood that week:
10" sabian hhx evolution splash
20" sabian chinese (its old)
18"- 20" crashes, various brands, sometimes rides (i like 'em big)

as for rides, i have a few, and rotate sometimes (especially recording):
21" zildjian sweet ride (main ride at the moment)
22" sabian dave garibaldi jam master ride
20" sabian aax stage ride
20" sabian vault ride
20" sabian hhx evolution (it's broken and sometimes gets a broken china stacker)

i have the pro-mark rattler that i throw on occasionally for some sizzle.

i rarely take more than 4 cymbals to show. hats, ride, bell, china. that's the typical set up. just depends on how i'm feeling, really.
