Hats

Zildjian K Custom Hybrid 14.25"
Zildjian A New Beat top with Sabian Fusion bottom 14"

Rides

Zildjian K Custom Hybrid 20"
Sabian Paragon 22"
Zildjian Z Custom Power Ride 20"

Crashes
17" K Custom Hybrid
19" K Custom Hybrid
18" Zildjian A Rock
17" Sabian Legacy
18" Sabian AAX Dark
17" Paiste 2002
20" Paiste 2002
19" Meinl Mb20 Heavy

China/Effect

14" Sabian HHX Mini-China
20" Sabian HHX China
19" ZIldjian K Custom Trash Smash

I don't play all of these at once; that would be absurd. I typically play hats, ride, 2 crashes, and a stack. A quiet setup would look like

Hybrid Hats and Ride
17 Hybrid Crash
Mini China on top of the New Beat top hi hat

Medium Volume would look like

New Beat Hats
Paragon Ride
19 Hybrid Crash
18 Sabian Dark Crash
20 HHX China on top of the 17 Hybrid Crash

Loud would be

New Beat Hats
Z Custom Ride
Zildjian Rock Crash
Meinl Mb20 Heavy Crash
Trash Smash

The only items that don't really fit anywhere are the 2002s. Most likely going to sell those.

Zildjian's
14" new beat hats
18" A fast crash
19" K custom hybrid crash
21" A sweet ride

Sabian
21" HHX groove ride

They sit over a Gretsch Renown jazz kit.

The HHX has a nice dark crash sound and sits left under the 18 fast crash with the K crash right side.

There's a 20" med thin Zildjian A crash locally I really like as well.

Zildjian K Custom Hybrid Crash 17"

Zildjian K-Series Ride 20"

Paiste 101 14" Hi Hat

Well, I'm pretty sure that regular K hats would great with that setup. The light hats and K customs would go great also. Just depends on the sound you're looking for.

I'm actually going to be pairing a K 14" Light hi-hat top with a regular 14" K bottom. So I'm kind of hoping the results will be like Sabian Legacy Hi hats.

13" 70's New Beats
14" factory second 70's New Beats
14" AAX Stage Hats
15" 60's NewB eats

17" AAXplosion Crash
18" HH Medium Thin Crash
18" K Custom Special Dry Crash
20" Crash of Doom

21"K Custom Special Dry Ride
20" HHX Stage Ride.


For most in town gigs I typically use just the AAX and 18" K crash and a set of hats. On The road it varies more depending on the playing situation. The only thing I'd really love to have that I don't is a cool sounding 16" crash with a really short decay and an extremely heavy ride like an Earth or Leopard ride Its fun to see what other folks have in their arsenal

Cheers,
Clive.

Mine is definitely not static. I will set things up and 6 months later change an angle, or shift positions. I have 2 rides, 1 in the hole and the other over the hi hat (with rivets). But that too is subject to change.

Default Re: What is your cymbal Setup?

I have a pop punk setup, and play with bigger cymbals than normal, yet i still find them small.

I use all Zildjian because in my opinion, they are the best.

The cymbals i own are:

16" A Medium Thin Crash
18" A Medium Thin Crash
20" A Medium Thin Crash
14" A New Beat Hi-hats
21" A Sweet Ride
18" FX Oriental China
10" A Custom Splash

I am currently looking for a 16" Hi-Hat Bottom or Crash so i can use my 16" Crash on the top. Whenever my band has gigs, I use the 18" Crash on my left and the 20" on the right. I want to try 16" Hi-Hats, because my 14"s feel small. I also am looking for a A 24" Medium Ride, and yeah.
