    Recommended Ride Cymbal for Small Jazz Kit?

    Thanks. I will consider it! I see you are using Evans Calftone drum heads. What do you use on the resonant side of your drums? Also, do you have any opinions on the bass batter and bass reso offerings? Is it conceivable to use an Evans Calftone Snare Batter on the Snare Side? If so, why as...

    Recommended Ride Cymbal for Small Jazz Kit?

    I have been looking all around for 50's or 60's A's at approximately 2000 grams with a video/audio sample. I am trying to find warm and not bright as advised here. Can't seem to find!

    Recommended Ride Cymbal for Small Jazz Kit?

    The feedback here is incredible. So helpful and so many ideas! I have an opportunity to get either of these 2 cymbals for the same price: A brand new Sabian 20” HHX Stage Ride (w/ 2 year warranty) (https://sabian.com/product/12012xn-20-inch-hhx-stage-ride/) A 1950's or 1960's A Zildjian 20"...

    Recommended Ride Cymbal for Small Jazz Kit?

    Thanks for the feedback, JDA. A few folks have indicated a dry ride is a good place to start for a jazz beginner. Plus, my kit is "mini" and my main playing room is small (76 sq ft). I saw on another thread that you have or had the Breakbeats/Uptown ride. How did you like it? Tama CW had...

    First Thoughts: Tama Club Jam Mini 12/18 2pc. Drum Kit

    I have the same kit! For the bass drum shell-mounted cymbal arm, do you have an opinion on the heaviest cymbal it could support? I am a beginner drummer--I only have hi-hats thus far, but was investigating a used ride cymbal for jazz and folk. I was trying to figure if it might be able to...

    Jazz Beginner and Hi Hat Size and Weight?

    Thanks for the advice. Very helpful. For 14's, 750-900 gm / 950-1200 gm. For 13's, about 15% lighter than 14's--so, 638-765 gm / 808-1040 gm. Are there weight classifications that the industry agrees upon? If so, might you be able to direct me to a webpage with a table of all the...

    Jazz Beginner and Hi Hat Size and Weight?

    Hello Community, I am brand new to drumming. I am interested in learning to play drums for jazz fusion and folk rock. With jazz fusion being top of mind at the moment, I am trying to hone in on the right hi hat size and weight. My drum set is quite small: a Tama Club Jam Mini--just a bass drum...
