Fantastic! You have something right there that is very close to my dream kit, in almost every respect. Very Brian Blade. Some day.15" Old A. Zildjian Hi-Hats 921/1359 grams

Not a perfect performance in any way. But I wasn't going for perfect. Just got the 24" From Steve Maxwell's Drum Shop yesterday.
22" came today from Reverb. Hi hats off Reverb came a few days ago.
Wow. Those sound so good together. How's going to a 24" after using smaller cymbals as a main for a while? The bell on the A is so nice. As is your touch, as always.
I'm jealous of that 22" Overhammered. I was eyeing it as well. Probably too light for me, though. Just such a pretty sound through the speakers.
Which one would work best with rivets do you think, the 22" or the 24"?
You all know this is going to end in a beat to snot Spizz.Don't know which to rivet yet. Probably the 24" cause I like to have the option of having a drier secondary ride and I will use the 22" as a crash...so don't want rivets in there.
BUT the 24" has a lot of wash so.....
I also could do the Brian Blade thing....I have my 22" Sabian Manhattan ride..could put that on the far right and have rivets in there!
I love Blade's 24" old A. Ill have to go watch videos. That one with Kenny Barron in the Canopus Ad....lots of close ups.
Assuming you are after a Brian Blade setup.
