Jazz Messengers? The ride sounds like a Trans or Large stamp 22" A. And the hats are a bit higher pitched liked Zildjian New Beats.....nice.

I'm just producing a list not a specific brand/model/weight because no way can I work from blind listening to one cymbals in the musical context back to specific details. In order from most to least likely

Your recently purchased Bos Hammer.
Any 50s old A.
Your Paiste Sig Rough.
Paiste Traditionals Light or Med Light Ride
Least likely to be your SCDR given the way it crashes

I could be completely off track.

Hints

Its not the Hammer Ride
Its not a modern Paiste

I think it would be sweet with some rivets

Btw. I really like this cymbal cause its different from anything I have..well..close to the hammer...but the edge crash is darker for sure.

These hi hats too

I don't have speakers or headphones on my computer, so all I hear is mush with a lot of overtones, but in the hopes of getting an answer, I'll play.

I can't see how the ride departs much if at all from an old A. I'd guess 22" too, and maybe medium weight. Though the mountain of overtones coming through my computer suggest lightweight and wash, I think that's my computer. It doesn't sound heavy to me though.

But I suppose the cymbal could be anything. It's just not standing out to me as out of the ordinary, thus my old A guess.

I didn't use nice speakers either. But it sounds heavier. Rough or SCDR?

As far as the hats, something 13".

Since no two cymbals sound exactly alike and not to mention the variances for the drumstick used, the mic used and the room they were recorded in ... the guess ONLY counts if you can also name the serial numbers of the cymbals too.
