I hear them in The Wind Cries Mary. And he played Paiste on the early records. I’m guessing Giant Beats and 602s. Perhaps on that song.Always wondered if he played a rivet ride, or simply had one of his “crashes” with rivets. I hear rivets in the sound for sure. Not quite sure what he used other than A’s.
Interestingly, Armand Zildjian referred to rivets as "nails." He'd say stuff like, put some "nails" in that and it will really sing. I miss him.Definetly seems like it was more of the thing in the 60’s. We cut down nails from dads work shop and peened them over in our crappy mij cymbals trying to get that sound and look cool!
