I know that this thread's been done before, but oh well

Mine shortly hopefully will be:

Paiste 10" Signature Splash
Paiste 14" Signature Dark Crisp Hi-Hat
Paiste 16" Signature Full Crash
Paiste 18" Signature Full Crash
Paiste 20" Full Ride
Sabian 10" HHX Evolution Splash
Stagg 16" SH China

I'll probably replace the china eventually, although it is good for how cheap it is

18" Paiste Twenty Thin China
8" Wuhan Splash
20" Paiste 602 Medium Flat Ride
16" Zildjian K Custom Session Crash

Mine's pretty simple

14" Zildjian New Beats (1979?)
18" 60's Zildjian Sizzle (mostly a crash)
18" 60's Zildjian Crash Ride
22" Old A Zildjian Ride

The 2 18's really sound like thin crashes with different pitches.

My big double bass kit has B8 pro 14 inch hi hats on the left side, and on the right I have a B8 pro ride 20 inch, and a b8 18 crash hovering above it.
Soon to have a really messed up 302 crash from idiotmyshkin. (I will cut out the bad parts and put it right above the bigger high tom or the roto toms)

Jazz kit has no hats, a 14 inch xs20 crash and a PAISTE 2000 blue label ride. (my favorite cymbal I own)

Yes, and when I do, I just grab from another ~50 pies and shuffle everything up!

But believe it or not, I use them all! Of course, I have my favorites, the mediums at right and left center, my dry dark ride on the right side, and my 18 xs20 that's right above it. My least favorite would be the left side ride, down low, the medium flat ride 602. But, I still play them all.
