Zildjian 14" A Qucik Beats (I got these about 8-9 years ago. If i never have children it is ok, because i have these)

Image

Zildjian 22" A Medium Ride (I was drunk after a show one night and before i could get it in the bag it slipped out of my hands, hit the floor, and put a big dent in it. I played on it for another month or so and then it started to crack, and i started to cry. I'm still waiting to save up enough money for a new one because the 22" K Custom i'm using now just doesn't have the same mix of ping and wash that made the A so awesome)

Image

Zildjian 18" K Dark Crash Thin (I've gone through 4 of these babies. I play too damn hard for them, but i just love the sound of the K's. I took it out of my setup for a while because i was sick of constantly having to send it back to zildjian, but now i think i'm going try the medium thin and see where that takes me)

16" A. Zildjian Crash "transitional stamp" w. smaller center hole and very prominent hand-hammering . very thin . beautiful dark and smooth crash sound ( for an "A")

20" Paiste Traditionals Light Flat Ride (etched logo) great woody tick with a wash like drizzling rain .

17" Sabian HHXtreme Crash - thin , dark and nasty trashy overtones . I like where Sabian is going with the over-size hammering top and bottom . probably going to get more of this type .

I own far too many cymbals to use at once but I like choosing from a large collection . I do mix and match brands - only the sound matters.

Paiste 2002 15" Sound Edge for hihats
Paiste Giant beats, 18 20 and 24

bonham knew how to pick his cymbals

I also have the set of 2002's in the 18 20 and 24 set up but the Giant Beats are head and sholders above the 2002 line. The reissue giant beats are 6 months on backorder, thats why guitar center dosent have them in yet, but if you have a local drum shop they can order them for you.
