Default Re: What is your cymbal Setup?

I currently have a 'light' set and a 'dark' set, and have streamlined significantly down to the current collection. I'll include them below:

LIGHT(ER):

14" Zildjian Canadian New Beats, or 14" Paiste Sound Edge hats
16" Paiste 602 thin/2002 crashes as hats (amazing set of 16s, if you've never tried it)
16" Paiste 602 Crash (as mentioned, but as a crash)
18" 602 Thin Crash
20" 602 Thin Crash
21" Mike Skiba Mini-bell Ride (bright, woody stick, subtle dark wash underneath)

DARK(ER):

14" K Constantinople Hats
18" Zildjian K Efx
19" Kerope
20" Kerope
20" Johan (re-lathed and re-hammered by Johan VDS)
20" Agop Signature Ride
21" Mike Skiba (as mentioned above...quite a chameleon)
22" Kerope
22" Agop SE TW Ride

I started writing out the 'honourable mention' list of cymbals, but stopped after 20... :-/

There are a number on the shopping list as well, but that's for another post :)

On the Kit:
14" Dream Bliss Hi-hats
22" Sabian AAX Omni

In Storage:
14" Zildjian Armand Hi-hats
14" Amici Hi-hats
16" Zildjian Armand Medium Thin Crash
18" Paiste Original Formula 602 Cymbal (with rivets)
19" Wuhan S Series Crash
20" Zidjian Avedis Medium Ride

Before I had the Omni, I was using the Zildjian crash and ride with the Wuhan. Right now I'm liking just having a pair of hats and a multi-functional cymbal. Less clutter.

Sounds good in my room at least!

14" Zildjian Armand/Mastersound hats
18" A Custom crash
21" Sweet Ride

That's all I've used for the past 4 or so years, but I'm wanting to get another 18-20" crash soon. Might see if I can't find a new PST 7.

I also have 14" A Custom Projection hats, a 16" AAX thin crash, a 19" Zildjian crash that has no paint on it, and a 22" Zildjian ride with no paint either. They both sound awesome though. I need to post pics of them and maybe someone can help me ID them.

Default Re: What is your cymbal Setup?

I've been using this setup for several years now and I've found it to be versatile enough to cover just about everything, genre-wise:

14" K. Zildjian Hi-Hat top (a 60's vintage Istanbul model, near as I can tell) over a Quick Beat bottom.
20" K. Custom Dark Ride
18" K. Custom Session Crash
17" K. Custom Hybrid Crash
