Essentially a copy of a Ludwig Big Beat/Hollywood then. If you listen to Captain Beefheart's Spotlight Kid album, Rhys played on the song "Glider" and he no doubt used the Blaemires on that recording. I am also pretty certain they were used on the Piano Man album as well.
I haven't gotten into what cymbals he used, I asked Larry and he said they were Zildjian's, A Customs I believe...
