You were probably much younger thenI used to play an 18" K Custom dark crash over an A medium. That combo sounded great, and I don't remember them being sluggish to play.
Diggin my 24" TW over a 24" Omni. Ended all reach problems with a double pedal. It's a little washy and I phone ahead for barks, and I'll need a few months with ankle weights for the 2&4 on uptempo swing, but otherwise it's sweet.18" hats?! Where will the madness end?
'Twas 10 years ago. But I'm still younger than most geezers on hereYou were probably much younger then
There is a point of diminishing returns on anything taken to far. 14s and 15s have been the standard for many years for a reason, they sound good and they're light enough to move them and be articulate. They are just the right size. On the other end you can get 10" hi hats, but I can't imagine them being good for to much.
