and I'll say this- going backwards- is rare
not unheard of- but rare

Now. Standing Pat.
Makes sense.
Just resist temptation (you ain't weak are ya?)
no. You're strong. And stick with- milk your new acquisitions fully - Be content.

Until you can steal your next dream.
(I mean monetarily)

Be content.

22" Lauritsen BSC. Note that I am still allowed to bring my 18" Spizz as a crash ;-)

I feel like it would come down to my 21" k sweet and my Meinl Byzance 21" transition, but the edge goes to the transition. Seeing a lot of love for Paiste on here...methinks I need to get myself a Paiste ride!

My Paiste masters 21" medium ride is my go to for multi cymbal setups. If it is just ride and hats, my 21" Mehmet '70s nostalgia.

Right now a 24” 2002 Big Beat. Nice defined ride sound and a big crash. You can do a gig on it as your only cymbal.

I have a lot of rides, but If I could only keep one...My 22" vintage 60's Stamp Avedis. The Swiss army knife of ride cymbals IMHO.

I have one of those, but it's a 70's era. Even has the same grommet on it. I was my 2nd favorite GoTo ride until I got a 24" K Light.
Yeah, it has quite the key hole, so I added a grommet for extra protection.

Craig Laurtisen 22" Rustico. To me, the perfect jazz ride at the perfect weight.
