Traditionally my pairing has been 2 on top of 3. And 4 on 5. 1 is brand new and an heirloom cymbal. I’m being a bit cautious with it at this point. But honestly. The 15’s and the #1 14 are nice light suspended cymbals. My friend, who is one of the Buffalo Philharmonic section percussionists (He owns Dragonfly Percussion), said he could use the 15” in the orchestra no problem. I’ve used them as orchestral crash cymbals. They are fantastic like that. Although I don’t get to do that very often they are there when I need them and yes they function great as a hihat pair.So you can put 3 on top of 1 what else..
and I'd put 4 on top of 5; want the K to speak first ; ) (always..))
Ohh. I was misleading. #1 is not “brand new”. It is new TO ME! Yes it is an old stamp (type 3?). I meant that I just acquired it and was being cautious Because it was my grandfather’s cymbal.well, I guessed 1) was an old stamp; Just didn't guess that old...
On/off and lately on I use a 14 old K con as my hh bottom. Its 1200 on-the-nose- g- flat dark.
(I don't see it (stamp "twists") mattering in old K Cons- as any type of soundindicator) (they're all old and the same family to me)Yes it is an old stamp (type 3?).
