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..))

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.

I use to use number 3 as a top cymbal with a Paiste 2002 sound edge bottom. Killer heavy hihat pair. (Heavy in a jazz sense). Now I’ve got some other cymbal that are less delicate so these stay at home or are for recording.

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.

(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)
Stamp "twists" (the different insignias) have huge & solid sound & build connotation in the K "Istanbul")
