Haha! I know todd, I was just kidding - I appreciate the backup! Yup, that pic is from '75. Check out their live bootleg (available as a download) "LA Friday" live at the Los Angeles Forum from July 1975 and it's pretty obvious (to me anyway) it's a Paiste. I believe it's a 20" 2002 Medium.Ha ha, not doubting you - backing you up my friend! Here is a pic of Charlie from 1975 - shows him with the Black Label 2002 (see the Paiste logo on the bottom of the cymbal, folks) which must of replaced the earlier Giant Beat as you mentioned above. Proof of Charlie using Paiste for any doubters.
Any chance he played a 24" GB on the '72 tour, Johnny? A poster in one of the Paiste FB groups says he saw the tour and that Charlie's ride looked bigger than a 20".
As to your question of him playing a 24" GB on the '72 tour... not a chance. Definitely a 20." Also check out "Ladies And Gentlemen The Rolling Stones" and there are several shots where it's obvious his ride is a 20."
