Doing a trio recording Sunday.
Alto Sax(leader), acoustic bass and me.

Its a home studio with top line recording equipment. So I live vibe...something similar to that recording Higgins with Charles Lloyd that maybe some of you have seen on YouTube?

Im waffling on equipment but am thinking my Gretsch with the Ludwig Coliseum.

Cymbals Im just going to go for it and use my heart
22" scdr one or two rivets

18" paiste trad

13" 1950s A/? I have nice choices at the moment that Ill try out at home

Ive got 3 sets of 13"s....
Agop Mels
Bosphorus Bright...but they are not bright at all..and paiste trads

I really like the trads. Best set Ive owned..

I really like this pair of worn out Vater Jazz ride sticks. The tips aren't whittled but they have been on 3 years of gigs

Thoughts?

How is he getting that coliseum to be so dry? Maybe internal muffler?

That all sounds nice. Good luck on this session. I always bring the DARKEST and LOWEST pitch cymbals to a jazz recording session. Nothing worse than hearing bright cymbals on a bop recording, sticking out like crazy. They really need to sit in the mix and sometimes you can't trust whoever is doing the mix. I'll moongel or tape up cymbals, too. I like stick definition on a ride, but my rides shouldn't ring out very much.
