You all need some way to occupy your quarantine time, so how about helping me come closer to purchasing an LSR. I like the LSR in these videos. It's a modern K model, but I cannot tell which one. Any thoughts? It's not just a regular K, maybe a special dry something or other!?

Thanks!

20" Left Side Ride? developed by Erskine?
18" Breakbeat?
Going to place 5p on 18" older Breakbeat ; had one.. quiet cymbal.

here's my top-shelf JDA- recommendation- to put across a modern 22" K <- that you absolutely adore ->
==========....16" Old K......Or if you really wanna be a Big Shot
==========....18" Old K.
Or if you're just plain- flat- crazy
==========....20"Old K.

Or if you want the "men in white lab coats" showing up immediately at your door
==========....22"..nope. can't say it.

(nocharge

You have (you must you must JDA rule)
"Tie" the Modern K "IN" with Old K
for complete and lasting harmony
(amen. service ended . file out one by one..
leave a tip and don't forget your bulletin
See you next Sunday

Probably an earlier Special Dry crash, not one of the recent trashy ones.
The Breakbeat ride is heavier, not as crashable, I think (they recently changed its name to uptown ride).

That is what it looks and sounds like to me, older K Custom Special Dry Crash. The breakbeat wasn't even labelled as a K was it? Was some separate ReMix line. Used to have one, nice left side ride.

Listening tot this again, a nice sounding cymbal in these clips, but it's more a matter of finding the right one beyond the model. It will be hard to find any Spcial Dry crash thes days, not to mention a good one. I'd say get any nice sounding thin crash of any make (17"?) and put some tape on it toget that dry decay.

I agree.....probably a first-generation special dry crash. The breakbeat is a cool cymbal but is not that thin.....
