14" Antique dark hats, 17" Antique med/thin 1209g, 18" Oracle 1320g. These blend perfectly. Play left-hand lead and prefer smaller rides, so something 19/20." .
Tried a 20" Antique medium at 2400g but it was much brighter (to me) than the rest of the kit and just didn't "fit". Never really had a crashable ride before, so maybe something sub 2000g. A 20" Oracle.ride would be ideal.

Let me know what you have.

Thanks!

I have a 20" Ferit Series Antiq Original Ride from the early 2000's at 2050 grams. In great shape since it's mostly been sitting in the bag. It has a nice bite to it for riding and crashing. I wouldn't call it bright but it's not dark either. Has a bit of trash underneath a clear stick sound.

I have a 22" Syncopation SW ride up for sale here: https://www.drumforum.org/threads/bosphorus-22”-syncopation-sw-ride.183852/
It sounds fantastic and you'd probably like it if you could deal with it being a 22.

I also have a New Orleans 20" but not selling that one, it would probably suit you really well if you can find one at the right weight like mine.

Thanks. I heard a 20" SW, but it was too trashy for what I want. Even a 21" is too big of a footprint or me, so still just 19 or 20".

The New Orleans would probably fit right in based on what I've heard of sound files.

My Antique is a hair or two lighter and is bright but I like its power, I can play lighter. Doesn't crash super well- too big of a crash

Thank you.

Masters, Groove, Antique and Hammer all might work. I have an 18" Samba arriving in a day or so. Let me see if/where that fits in.
