Killer kit. I bet that sounds amazing
Keep yourself open to looking at big crashes that ride well too, my favorite “ride” is one from a pair of old 22” a zildjian orchestral crashesMy favorite setup ever. Nothing better than a small(er) kit with a ride flying from the bass drum. It’s ergonomically perfect AND it inspires a particular kind of vibe. With a perfectly crashable ride on there, and a smooth set of hats - that’s all she wrote. Thus begins the journey for that thing rarer than unicorn tears: the holy grail small ride that is at once the ideal crash and the ideal ride, with a beautiful bell. Does it exist? Idk. But the search continues.
I know that hum ...... !I have the DW BD cymbal mount on the shell of my 18/12/14 stave bop kit. Sturdy, works great and love the retro look but I don't use it in the studio. With a wide open BD it sends vibrations to the front head which produces a very low volume hum at most timings. It's easier to just use a cymbal stand.
I made one out of a dw boom armWhile they’re being discussed, does anybody know of a company making a cymbal L arm shorter than the short pearl one? Its about 12” from bracket to cymbal washer. Ideally I’d like to be around 9”. Also needs to be fairly sturdy for a 24” ride
