Here‘s a little playlist with some cymbals with what to my ear is a clear pitch difference. I might put together two of them or more. (the lowest sounding ones are similar pitchwise, I would only put up one of these). I would usually think of putting the higher sounding cymbal on the left, but someone might do it the other way round as well. I think Blakey used a lower cymbal on the left he mostly used for crashes.

My left side cymbal is a Nicky Moon modification. Started as a 20” Sabian HH Classic ride.
Rehammered and lathed, nice stick sound and a dark wash…two rivets installed.
