O and here's an Old K Constantinople set put in a modern drum set context something they were hardly ever meant thought to be- for
18,18,14s,12..primitive chic Zildjian chic..

I would love to play those on a kit. They look like tons of fun.

Here's the set I've used for nearly every gig this year:

15" Masterwork Custom Pointer hats
19" Abrahim Diril Jazz Crash
21" UFiP Class Series Crash-Ride

Versatile enough for a wide variety of low to medium volume musical stylings, but not ideal for high energy rock bashing. I'd prefer my Sabian AAX Vault set for that stuff.

Versatile?

Well, the hats are 14" New Beats and the ride is a 20" plain K or Sabian HH, under 2500g but not too light. The crash is where you need to be more specific than "versatile." Any 16" crash would do, like an A, but with a streamlined cymbal setup I'd be tempted to look for a slightly larger crash/ride that will supplement your main ride in the direction you want to go. Basically you can go bright/loud or dark/quiet here depending on which direction you want to steer your versatile setup.
