This week I pulled apart the drum room for some cleaning, and decided to take a few pix. Here are a few cymbals (rides included,) all Paiste.

Back row: 22" SCDR, 22" 602 Paperthin, 22" Twenty Masters Dark Ride, 20" Dark Energy Light Dark, 22 Modern Essentials, 22" SCDR, 22" Trad Med Light, 22" Super (in there somewhere.)

Towards the front: 20" 602 602 Thin Flat, 19" 602 Medium, 18" 602 Thin Flat (in there somewhere.)

And here's a good money shot (sorry, I know you asked for just ride cymbals, but there is a few snare drums in this shot too.)

whats your favorite from that bunch ?
Truthfully I never really think in terms of "favorite." I don't own anything that I don't absolutely LOVE! I sold off all my "likes" years ago. I just think in terms of what's best for the gig, song, room, musical context, or situation.

I follow those (self imposed) rules for the drum set, snares and cymbals. Band leaders like it, and I sort of do too. I've had most of my instruments for a long while, so I really "know" them. I really enjoy putting together "the right instrument" for me, for the gig.

However, I'm not opposed to occasionally taking a "perfectly inappropriate" (to me) sound to a gig as well, to mix things up, and inspire some musical experimentation and creativity.

My go-ride is a late 50's Zildjian A Small Stamp 2158 g
If that's the one that you got from me ( I think it is)....I must have played 15-20 before picking that one for you. It really sounded nice. I just kept going back to it.

Two recent discs, in addition to those arrayed at the beginning of this thread: A Zildjian Uptown Ride and a 20” K Flat (denuded of any ink or markings).
In many ways these fill some gaps in my pack of sled dogs. Until their arrival, I’ve had neither an 18 nor a flat. My other rides work well in medium to loud situations, and these are, I suppose, betrothed to the more subtle gatherings. I think I may be done for a while…at least done until this Qovid Quarantine is over and I start playing with bands again.

I need to explore these in applications other than the shed. I feel that along with the others, more or less, I now have a different ride available for the sorts of situations I find myself in.

So I’m telling myself.

I can attest to the 20" K Flat. Very nice.
I have yet to try an Uptown ride, but all reports are favourable.
Congrats on your latest grabs, CC. :thumbup:
