I dig Peart and Copeland's. Of course such a set-up requires plenty of time to arrange, BUT HEY----they got the BEST!

We've pretty much outlawed the question "What's the 'best'" around here, there is no "best" of anything. It's all a matter of personal choice and preference. You've got what's "best" for you and I've got what's "best" for me.

That said, there are drummers with sets of cymbals that I admire. Neil Peart, Terry Bozzio, PJ Clevenger, Mike Portnoy, and any drummer who's not playing with hats, a pair of 20" crashes and a 21" Sweet Ride in some wanna-be pop/punk band.

Read the post again, Mastershake. It was meant as a dig at the drummers who tend to play with modern pop/punk bands who all have the same identical setup. I don't think there's anything wrong with a Sweet Ride, I just don't dig the drummers who play in bands that all sound the same and their kits are all set up the same.
