    Song requests and tip$

    When people are respectful, tip, etc. and we know the tune, we do it. For people like this we'll usually say that we play more obscure versions of the requested artist's music. Then we play whatever we want and announce it as one of (requested artist's) more obscure favorites of ours. They're...

    Istanbul Agop Traditional Jazz Cymbals

    Here's a complete set of Istanbul Agop Traditional Jazz cymbals. This is a versatile setup. True to their Agop-ness, they have that dark wash underneath, but there is also a clear and present stick on top. The 22" has a nice buttery feel, and the 20" offers great crash/ride flexibility. The 14"...

    21" Heather Stine Mod Ride Cymbal (2097g)

    Beautiful looking cymbal with a glassy stick and slight roundness to the sound on top of a dark wash. I made the soundfile with a hickory stick but have enjoyed playing this lately with a maple stick. Will ship with three Bosphorous rivets in place. For the recording I only had one rivet...

    Left Side Ride

    I switch it up. Lately I've been really enjoying a larger (main ride) cymbal on my left, smaller on the right.

    Sabian 22" Jazz Ride

    Honestly wasn't the most rational decision. Started playing some of the Turkish brands and thought it was time to move on. I'm happy with what I have now, but that one still hurts. Also had an 18" HH Sound Control Crash Ride that was stellar. Yep...gone, too. Dumb.

    Sabian 22" Jazz Ride

    I had one that I played nearly exclusively from 94 to 2017. It was called an HH Jazz Ride (no Manhattan). Mine was a great weight with a fairly high profile. Nice weight distribution from bell to edge. Very versatile. It had great stick with a nice dark wash underneath that was still very...

    She's Back Home

    Interestingly, I had a 22" HH Jazz Ride (pre-Manhattan) that I got for 75 bucks in the early 90s. It had a slight wave in one spot, not a big deal. It sounded and felt really great. It was my main ride cymbal for years. Didn't know how good I had it with that one, got a wild hair, and sold that...

    SOLD 50s A. Zildjian 20" Small Stamp Ride Cymbal (2071g)

    A clean example of that classic 50s A. Zildjian small stamp sound. Clear and shimmery with a slightly glassy character. Nice stick-to-wash ratio. Excellent in various settings. Super clean condition. No keyholing at all. Weighs in at a very nice 2071 grams on my scale. Plays light with a...
