Selecting a set up for intensive rehearsals/Gigs this next coming fortnight.. I picked out a 17" A Medium Thin Brilliant, a 17" A Custom Crash (works so nicely with the A) and a 20" A Ping Ride..

it doesn't get used as much as it used to... but I'd go with my 22" A Zildjian medium ride, 17" AAXplosion crash, 18" A Custom crash, 15" A Zildjian hats, and my 12" A Zildjian splash.
But with mics, I'd still stick with my old A Zildjian 20" medium, 16 and 18 Sabian HH crashes, and my good old 14" New beats, of which I've accumulated quite a few...

Don't have one. Playing softly but with intensity has been my goal for several years now, and getting MORE volume out of my cymbals has been the least of my worries. If I know the room's going to be bigger than we're used to I might sub the Zildjian & Cie set for the Paiste Trad set.

I use my same set up BUT if I played more outdoor gigs and more classic rock, I would definitely get a 19 and 20 crash in my mix...

Now;
15 A Mastersound Hats
16,17,18 K Fast Customs's
21" Sabian Raw Bell ride
12" trash static hats (12" Wuhan chine bottom/12" Sabian AAX splash top
6" Zilbell
8" Paiste Signature splash

I'm not playing many rock gigs this year, but when I do, it's usually the following:

14" A. Mastersounds or Meinl Raker hats
16 & 18" AAXplosion crashes or 17 & 19" Vault crashes
21" UFIP Experience Vintage Ride
