I was recently wondering which cymbals in my setup are simply irreplaceble and found that no matter what I will never get rid of my Paiste 2000 hats and my 20" swish. The hats because they not only sound great but they are also a collectors item ;) (well at least I'd collect colorsounds if I had the money to do so), the swish because it has that one of the kind sound - just right. :)

Imagine you have to sell all your cymbals for whatever reason and you can only spare three... which would you choose and why?

D'oh!! That leaves me minus the 21" Sweet Crash/Ride.

I couldn't bear to part with the 24" crash/ride or the 20" Hi-Hats (they count as one, right?) :lol:

I'd keep both my 16" and 18" Sabian Rocktagons and also the 17" rock crash. I know Sabian don't make all three anymore so to me, they are clasics.

I've even gone and found a 16" rocktagon on ebay so I have continuance of one cymbal breaks. 8)

I'd definitely keep my Agops-14 empire hats and my 22 pasha ride. Other cymbals are only added depending on the playing situation(although the ride is a bit too heavy for jazz, but I'd keep it anyway :) ). They are the core of my cymbal sound.
Mapex, Istanbul Agop, Attack, Vater/O4D.
I want an endorsement :)

This is fairly easy as i only really use 4 cymbals in my set up. Although i have about 10 lying around the studio.

I'd hold onto my Zildjian 14'' Quick Beats, my 18" K Dark Thin Crash and my 22" A Medium Ride.
