Another bit of Charlie knockoff here. From a street fair gig a couple of weeks ago in Bakersfield.

DW drums with 8x14 almond snare drum - 8x12, 16x16, 14x22

602 cymbals - 15” SE hats, 20” Medium (not Medium Ride) and 17” Thin Crash.

Dude yes!
Looks fantastic.
What did you end up with? And what are those drums?
Thanks, man! Yeah, I think these will do.

Cymbals:
- 14" hats: 50s small stamp (857g) over 60s short stamp (1340g)
- 18" 60s short stamp crash (1503g)
- 20" 60s short stamp crash/ride I got from you (2023g)
- 22" 60s short stamp ride (2962g)

Drums are an orphan Ludwig players kit in antique WMP:
- 24x14 60s 3-ply kick
- 18x16 70s 6-ply floor tom
- 13x9 modern'ish classic maple I wrapped to match
- 14x6.5 modern Supra

I can't really get loud at my place unfortunately (neighbors), so the real test is this Saturday at a gig. But it already feels like it's a winner. The bell is sweet! And the tone spread of the 18 and 20 seems just right.

Nice kit, Josh.
What is the little cymbal sitting in between the K Connie and the Light Flat?
Thanks! That's a 17" K Custom Fast Crash cracked to hell and back. A member here gave it to me for my kids when I picked up a ride from him a couple years back. There's a jr kit hiding beind that 20 flat in that pic and the 17" is the "ride" cymbal for that kit.

Yep, that explains it.
I was thinking that was a strange place to set a cymbal (seems hard to reach). Now I know the secret! =)

Looking for something else and ran across this. Bird's eye of the Ludwig kit, taken in the middle of the living room of my old apartment on Bainbridge Island for the first "Bird's Eye" thread @ Cymbalholic. I had to stand on a chair and push the camera right up against the ceiling to get the whole kit in the shot.

When I started that thread on Cymbalholic (in 2007, I think), I had no idea that it'd be so popular and long-running!
Kinda neat that it continues to have life, here.

...and it spurred children, as well! ;)
I think your dating of that thread is about spot on.
Of the cymbals shown in my pic, The ride on the left and the top hat cymbal (plus another snare drum, not shown) were all purchased in October of 2006 and I remember taking this picture shortly after acquiring those items.
I think someone needs to create an Epic Thread Award and present it to you.
It would only be fitting. =)

Any audio of those rides? I’ve always wondered what rehammering an A would sound like
