What is your current cymbal setup?  Here is mine from left to right:

All Sabian
Paragon 14” Hats
AAX Raw Bell Dry Ride 21” (I play open handed.)
AAX Stage Crash 16”
AA El Sabor 18”

This is what I use in our instrumental rock trio.  To play praise and worship outside of my church, I would substitute an AA Thin Crash 17” for the AAX Stage Crash 16”.  For prison ministry, I use the hats, Thin Crash 17, and the El Sabor 18”.

Peace and goodwill.

All SABIAN..
13” Hand Hammered HH
18” AAX Crash
18” HHX Crash
18” Rock Crash
19” Rock Crash
20” Ozone Crash
10” AAX Splash
10” HHX Splash
18” Wuhan China (Want that trashy 10.00 sound? Buy a 25.00 cymbal)

And no..Im not a rock drummer! I play country..Just sick of the way a smaller crash feels in a large venue..18” 19” and 20” seem to do the trick for me..You can ck me out at www.myspace.com/blended328 and www.myspace.com/rhymshotcountry

From left to right I’m working with:
-Sabian-
14” AAX Stage hats
16” AAXplosion Crash
8” AAX splash
18” AAXplosion Crash
20” AAX Stage Ride
-Zildjian-
18” A Custom China

I love the sound of my china, but I am contemplating swapping it for a 19” AAXtreme china, adding a 15” AAxtreme china, and possibly a 10” Splash of a bright variety, since as you can see, I am so big on mixing and matching sounds.  /sarcasm

After you hit “post reply” look at the bottom of the page, right above “preview post.” You’ll see a button called “choose file” that will allow you to post photos with your message.

Nice kit. You really like to mount your crashes high, which is the complete opposite of the way I set up my kit. I need to take some photos and post them here.

It always tells me my images are too large, even when I scale them down… Any way we can post direct images into our messages without choosing the upload file thing?

We set it up so it would work for everyone but you, Nick. Seriously, I’ll have our web dude look into it.
