Always loved the sound on Pink Floyds Dark side of the Moon. That sweet ride sound on "Money" is just gorgeous. What is that, a Paiste 602 or 2002?

In jazz its Jon Christensen. Love his sound.

Thanks. I know Jon has used various cymbals through the years and I believe the one most famous is an old Istanbul made heavy orchestral K, weighing almost 4000gr. That's what I have heard from various folks.

He is in my "Paiste profiles" set up book from 1981

HOLY CRAP! What a song! I've had it on repeat for the last hour. I can't believe I haven't heard this in my 37 years. And I heard a couple of versions by her from this decade, and she sings it the SAME. Real talented lady.

The cymbal isn't bad neither ;) . Do we know what it was? Interestingly, it sounds like the same band that was on Sheena Easton's records at the time (I know that Van Hooke was the drummer.

Miles Davis - Milestones has Philly Joe, not Tony. Also, Tony only plays hats on the "In a Silent Way" album. Jack does more of the drumming duties on that one


My faves

Alex Van Halen - 1984 album, but "Hot for Teacher" in particular (22" Rude??)

Stewart Copeland - The Police - Ghost in the Machine, Synchronicity (something about that 24" Rude Ride/Crash and his touch on that cymbal, it's extraordinary)

Jack DeJohnette - his "Special Edition" band (Paiste 22" SCDR) and also his mid 90's work with Keith Jarrett, Gateway Trio, and Herbie Hancock (21" JD Encore Ride, 22" JD Encore mini-bell)

Tony Williams - Miles Davis - Miles Smiles

Paul Motian - he could make any ride sound great, but I think he may have play F602s for a while.

Al Foster - Joe Henderson - So Near, So Far (Musings for Miles) - either a 22" SCDR or a 22" Signature Mellow Ride. Always thought it was the latter.

This recording, as much as any other, made me want to be a drummer. I was 14, had been 'playing' for a few years, and this did it for me. It was only until years later that I discovered it's theatrical origins.

The ultimate crash ride, in my view. Probably a 22" A crash/ride.

That was Philly Joe Jones playing on that album...

But favourite ride album has gotta be Maiden Voyage by Herbie Hancock (Tony Williams).

Paul Motian played a 20" 2oo2 sizzle Ride and a 20" 2oo2 standard ride..

I'm not so sure that those profile books are accurate. They had an endorsement and probably picked those cymbals out but often on gigs they seem to use their favs. Motian states in a Modern Drummer interview from april/may 1980 that he had his 20" A sizzle for about 20 years and that he has a second ride on the left that is an old K. He says he uses a mixed hihat with a Paiste 'ripple' on the bottom and K on top. He says he used those "on his recordings". I guess that means with Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett etc. There's a later MD where Motian has some Paistes and a Gretsch set. I cant find the issue right now.

Sometimes you don't know what is being played on the record. Larry Mullen plays Paiste live but there is some footage of him recording with Z!
