Its true. The medium is a bit too close in pitch as a left side paired with the scdr.Nice sounds. In this context the two cymbals, aside from a pitch differentiation, sound similar in character.
Thanks for posting.
Yes. The trads are more like old ks with a piece of tape underneath.Killmeister,
I was just teaching a jazz lesson here at home and had to throw up a set of jazz cymbals real quick. I grabbed one of my 22" SCDR's (main,) 18" Trad Extra Light (left,) and 20" riveted Extra Thin Trad (far right.) They compliment each other VERY nicely!!!!
As we have discussed, I think the Med Light Trads (20 or 22) are some of the best all around rides around (and they are by far the closest Modern Paiste's to SCDR's, just no "chime.") The Lights are pretty great too (a little trashier, and they crash better.) Those 22" Light Trads are the cymbals that first attracted Vinnie to Paiste. And thanks to Vinnie and Steve Jordan, the Trads aren't going anywhere!!!!!! (i.e. being discontinued, VC and SJ LOVE them, and so do I.)
When you had your Trads and your Masters did you ever compare them directly? That's the comparison I would like to hear... I don't have any Trads and Masters in the same sizes for a ol' good fashioned compare and contrast.
Thanks for the post. Really cool to hear both - I've always wondered what the Trad sounds like live. I have a 22" 602 DR with no rivets and find it a b**tch to master. You've clearly got the touch - nicely played. As a matter of interest, do you play the 22" SCDR close to the edge or the middle of the bow. Listening to the sizzles, I assume you're staying around the edge. Thanks again.Short little clip from last night
