If it has to one and I have to already own it, 24" Paiste 2002. Much more versatile than I thought it would be when I bought it.

Formula 602 23" Medium

Up to 22" the 602 Mediums are too washy for my taste when used for riding. The 23 has the perfect blend of wash and stick for me.
I let a 24" slip by me recently, would have loved to try that one...

I have a pre-serial 23" that, judging by the weight, is also a Medium (29xx g). It is a great, great cymbal.

Do you know the weight of yours? Does it still have any ink on it? Thx

Hum... I don't think that of my 3, I own the "one" to rule them all. But in the spirit of the game, if picking only one of mine for everything, it's a 22" Istanbul Mehmet 70's Nostalgia.

Just one? It would have to be my 24" small bell Dream Bliss. But will that look funny on my micro kits? :)

If ever I scaled down to just micro kits, it would be the 19" Dream Bliss crash/ride I recently purchased from @komodobob (that one has a definite Bill Stewart vibe and I have grown very fond of it in the short week during which I've owned it - thus far.)

If just one then my Zildjian IAK 20" Orchestral. Has a regular size bell and is just heavy enough for ping but still crashes easy enough to get away with just an 18" Crash on the left.

Came into a really nice 22" K Custom Dark a few weeks ago. 2590g. So far, have used it on several of both rock and jazz gigs and it does everything well. Low-mid pitch, some complexity, a little tangy on top, lots of warmth and body underneath. Digging it.
