A slightly different setup:


Gretsch RB 14x20 BD and 8x14 80s snare. Cymbals are 14" Johan top (795 g) over Paiste Sound Creation Dark Heavy Hihat Top (1136 g), 11" Zenjian splash (263 g), 7" Collingwood stainless steel chime (224 g) and 20" Lauritsen (1983 g).

You ever have a cymbal that just doesn’t seem to mate with any other cymbals, but sounds great on its own? And so rarely gets played...

Finally found a sibling for an Istanbul Agop original fully lathed Matt Chamberlain 23” ride In a first generation Zildjian K Custom dry complex medium thin (The Bill Stewart model).

Hey Ptrick, are those the dual hats I sold you awhile ago? How are they treating you?

Here's one of my standard sets with one addition.

The 18-13-16 80's Tama Sup's with the copper snare (always).

Paiste 20" BlueBird (often this or else 21" Masters Medium Ride) and 19" DE Crash (always) old A 15" hats (always). Turns out this this 22" Old K fits in perfectly.

Yep, those are them! I like them a lot. I sometimes use a thinner bottom.

That's what usually happens to me if jazz gigs are few and i spend a lot of time in the practice room. Curious if this setup will ever make it on stage ;) (but actually the second ride on the right is the the only one that is new to it. And I also don't take the Swiss hats out too often)
