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

I just remembered that I was playing them on my last video on Insta - it's with a drumsolo, but I'll make a close up cymbal demo tomorrow!

Always loved that K Dark 22" since first seeing Jason Marsalis play it here...bet yours sounds great! (I think she wants rivets!)

22" Flat Earth Ride. Man, that's a nice cymbal. I'd have one, but I was looking for something with just a little less trash in it.
Still, EXCELLENT cymbal...I might still get one, sometime down the road.

@Rich K. will recognize the cymbals :) Left to right: 14" Dream Contact hats, 22" Dream Bliss crash/ride and 19" Zildjian Armand Beautiful Baby. Kit is a Tama Club Jam (12x18, 7x10 & 7x14 toms) plus a 6.5x14 Dixon snare drum. Taken at today's rehearsal in Lake Helen, FL.

How are you liking the 19? It was my main ride for a few years.

Loving it. I had one years ago and stupidly sold it. The real stars, though are the Dreams. I was impressed by the newer 22 that you sold me. I was not expecting it to be so nice, nor was I expecting it to go so well with the Armand BB.

Started my own thread about this latest setup, but guess it makes sense to post here. Lately I've been experimenting with an all 20", all K Con setup. Love my 22s, but appreciate the response, close proximity, crash and ride-ability of all these cymbals, and the pitch relationships between them.
Aside from the 14" hi hats, the rest are 20". From the left:
-High bell thin high ride with three rivets
-Medium thin low ride
-Sound Lab Prototype Bounce Over-Hammered ride

From our band's rehearsal on November 11, 2022. Cymbals:
14" 1960s Zildjian A "Light" Hats 814/897 grams
22" 1950s Zildjian Small Stamp Sizzle Ride 2920 grams
19" Dream Bliss crash/ride w/two rivets 1495 grams

For rides I could not have picked worst choices for the 50s/60s rock/pop/blues that we play. The hats would work anywhere. To be fair, I packed the rides after rehearsal in a bag I marked: "Piano Trio Gems".

Huh. What didnt you like about the 22" in that setting? Weight and vintage seem ideal?
