At a Bozzio solo show not long ago he said that he has a full time drum tech, one guy, who does all of it.

From tonight’s gig. The missing rack tom was unintentional. Loaded my car late last night with a bad, bad cold that made my head so fuzzy I didn’t notice I’d left it out. Enjoyable night regardless. Classic maples, brass Sensitone, K Light hats, 60’s 20” Avedis crash/ride on left and 20” K Custom Dark Ride.

Oops, look at me, behind the times as usual!

Do you always rock 3 crashes?

I've been playing for 50+ years and this is the first time I've used 3 crashes. I had some money left over after selling my e-kit, and I vowed to put the cash towards new cymbals, so I added the 17" crash. The 16" and 18" are my favorites.

One more Rogers kit to share - Blue Onyx 22/13/16/18 and a 8 x 14” Brady Jarrah Block Snare adorned with Zildjian Avedis Series - 15” hats and L to R 18, 22, 20 & 19” pies.

Our local GC has one Avedis series 22" ride in stock, and I'm entranced by it every time I play it. I don't know what Zildjian has done to the Avedis cymbals to achieve that sound, but I love it. Do the crash and hihat cymbals have the same qualities as the ride?

They do indeed! I started with the hats and the 18” crash paired with some old 60s A’s I had used for decades.

I liked them (the new ones) so much paired with my old Rogers stuff and the older Zildjians that I kept adding and adding...

I’m done now, perhaps one cymbal too many, but I wanted something (the 19” in this case) near the 18” floor tom. I still sub some older Zildjians in at times, but more often than not I’ve kept it Avedis series pure.
