What is the weight on your 19” crash/ride? Mine is right at 1600g and I love it. Crash/rides can sometimes struggle to do both jobs well, but I happily use mine in both roles - a ride for quieter gigs and a crash in louder settings.
Mine is 1,608g. I also love mine in both settings -- makes for a slightly quieter higher-pitch ride and makes a lovely crash. Very dynamic and a great complement to a traditional ride.

New Tama Speed Cobra 910 single pedal and a Gibraltar B9608S short base throne stand. For a while now I've been feeling my DW9000 pedal is a little sluggish. Looking to try something with a lighter/quicker feel to it. So, we'll see. The short base throne stand is perfect for the SoundSeat I'm about to order. I sit fairly low, and that's a big seat, so this base should work nicely. It can clearly go lower than I'll need it to (think Vinnie during the Zappa years).

New Tama Speed Cobra 910 single pedal
Picked one up a few months ago.
It’s been a great pedal with no issues and haven’t adjusted a thing right out of the box.
Only thing is the rubber beater, it wanted to stick to my bass drum batter head due to the wedging effect. It never actually stuck, but it would delay the rebound by a millisecond and you could feel it.
I placed a leather beater patch on the head where the beater strikes the head and that solved the wedging/sticking issue.
Haven’t noticed an advantage to this soft plastic/gel beater over my traditional round felt one, but it’s all good.

Speaking of Speed Cobras, I just bought 3 of ACD Unlimited's direct-drive conversion kits for my single and double pedals. I was starting to return to my Yamaha direct drive, but figured I'd give this a try. Super easy to install and they feel great. Light and quick. My doubles are faster. Dennis at ACD does excellent work.

24x14 Slingerland bass drum. Shell is in great shape, but the hardware is kind of rough - given all the rust and pitting I'm finding, I suspect this drum has lived much of its life in a humid environment, or perhaps on or near the ocean. Or maybe it just never got cleaned. Hoops (black w/chrome inlay) are not pictured, but I did get them with the drum. Several of the claws are missing, and others rusted to the point that I need to pick up some replacements.

James,
Would you happen to know if that bass drum spent any of its life in Seattle Washington?
Your description sounds like one of the two basses that belonged to a kid I knew back in the mid '80's, when I lived in the Wedgewood area, just north of Seattle.

I bought it from someone about 20 minutes away from me here in Connecticut. I'm afraid I don't know the prior history of the drum.

Kinda behind on reporting in….a set of Paiste 2002 15” Sound Edge hats, another Humes and Berg cymbal case and a new SKB Hardware case to replace my totally worn out and exhausted Humes and Berg hardware case. Also purchased a set of Rode headphones to replace a set of worn out Sony studio headphones.

Snagged a Pearl Stavecraft 6.5x14 Makha snare and a 12" Sabian Chopper.

Wooo boy! The Stavecraft would rank very low in the "neighbors' favorite snare" poll. It blew my hair back in the store. Can't wait to play it at rehearsal this week.

Three used BT-1 pads for the SX Pro.

I also use a RT-30HR acoustic trigger for the snare and RT-30K acoustic trigger for the kick.

All I need now is a KT-10FD-9, and PD-128 as a side/electronic snare and the set is complete.

Gear-related, but not really gear. Amazon has t-shirts that you can customize. I had been purchasing a few with my band's logo, but in a fit of boredom came up with this this eyesore. Yeah, it does look like a ransom note, but, hey, I am in Florida where good taste and aesthetics take a back seat to gaudiness. :)
