    Where is the sizzle?

    No sizzle for decades. Then Rick Dior playing Jack Dejohnette signature 20” heavy dry with 8 evenly spaced rivets. It’s what I want to hear most for over a year or two. And flat rides. And 12 & 13” Hhats. And nice splashy 6”-8” splashes. And

    Mid 70’s I had this ride, 18” crash-ride, 13” hats. Selling them in 80’s worst thing I’ve ever done gear wise

    How much of a difference does the type of Hi hat stand really make to you?

    I traded in midline kit & hardware on higher end shell pack without hardware years ago. Bought cheap hi-hat stand to replace. Surprises me how long this cheapo has lasted. I think as long as any piece of gear does what’s needed I’ll use it until there is a real need to replace it i.e. wears out.

    What is The Most Versatile Zildjian Ride Out There?

    I’m finding K Custom Dark 20” very versatile. Especially using different stick types. But I think any k ride you like the sound of with a variety of sticks will do whatever you need.
