I mean. I could seriously gig these. I would put two rivets...maybe 3 in 22"

That 18" is killing me...whew....damn
The hats are heavier than typical jazz hats...but dark enough for jazz

Wow! 3 fantastic choices! I bought a 17" Legacy about a year ago and it fast became a go-to. The taper on this cymbal is crazy and the balance of sweetness/dirtiness is hard to explain. Kinda like a "jazz china/crash hybrid. I get why your 18" was gigged a lot. The 13" Groove Hats are on my bucket list after having played a friend's. They're just dark enough, just quick enough. The 22" Legacy Heavy Ride is my new favourite "fictional" ride. I have yet to play one in person, yet every video I've heard (including yours) makes me want to own one (say GAS!). The combination of these 3 models together is stupendous! A winning combination! Great playing & tuning, very musical!

I use the 17" Legacy in combination with a 16" HHX Evolution in a lot of my smaller setups. You can hear them together here, with a 12" HHX Evolution over a mid 50's K for hats & a 20" Zildjian flat ride that is also from Meductic, NB.

I know im going to end up selling these.
I just dont see myself gigging them

Ill gig the paistes and Manhattans

I like them better than the bosphorus and mel lewis too.

If I played in a jazz fusion band i would gig these for sure over my other cymbals

Love 'em both, my Legacy ride is sooo versatile!

Yours sound sublime!

21" UFiP Class series crash/ride

I lie not - that is one of the most enjoyable videos I've seen posted here so far. That band is simply cookin,' the two-camera capture is quite nice, and the audio is something else. I don't know how you guys captured the audio for this, but I love it. Can you fill us in on what equipment was used?

And ditto on all the remarks made thus far on the sound of those cymbals and your playing. First-rate all the way.
