Well, of course the ride is a Paiste Medium flat ride from the seven sounds series (Formula 602), the hihats look (and sound) also like Paiste Formula 602, probably early pre-serial ones. The left side looks a little bit like an Ufip, but that's hard to tell.Thanks! It's an old RIMS Headset kit.
Now can anyone identify the cymbals?
The seven sound ride is actually thin (1300g). The left side is a 16" old K (old stamp), and the hats are 13" old Italian Vibras.Well, of course the ride is a Paiste Medium flat ride from the seven sounds series (Formula 602), the hihats look (and sound) also like Paiste Formula 602, probably early pre-serial ones.

Someone had scanned it and posted on the web. But it has since been taken down (possibly ordered to because of copyright issues? Just guessing). It's from Vernel's book, which has become impossible to find. As near as I could tell, it was note-for-note accurate. 6 or 7 pages if I remember right.Nice presentation! Thanks for doing this! Where did you find Vernell’s transcription?
Thanks for the advice! I never thought to try trad grip because every video I've seen (with the likes of Idris, Herlin, etc.) they all used matched. Too bad there isn't any footage of Vernel playing it - his touch is to die for.If I could make one humble suggestion it'd be to play the left hand part differently. I find that trad grip in the left and deadsticking the hats and cymbal give a better feel / kit mix when playing this type of part.
River Park is a great area, virtually no traffic.Brother Dude! That was mighty fine. My favorite Jamal tune and you slayed it. That sort of thing doesn’t happen by itself. Really respect the work that must have taken. Band sounded excellent! Your kit was so well tuned for the vibe. Love those cymbals. What are they?
(Figures you’re from Sacramento. I was born and raised there. River Park. )
