Default My lil' workhorse

Here's my little four-piece. 18" x 15" BD, 12" x 10" FT and 10" x 9" TT by Remo, and a 14" x 5,5" SN by Kumu.

The cymbals are: 10" Paiste Signature splash, 18" Masterwork Custom china, 16" Zildjian A Custom crash, 21" Meinl Byzance Dark ride, 20" Meinl Byzance Thin ride, 14" Zildjian A Custom hi-hats and 16" Meinl Byzance Thin crash.

The hardware used is a mixture of Yamaha, Tama, Pearl and some cheapo stuff which is undergoing a renovation. The only bits worth mentioning are the Yamaha HS950 hi-hat stand (which is awesome), the Yamaha SS840 (which is just nice) and the Pearl Eliminator (whose perfect setup I haven't quite figured out yet).

I just lugged them back home from a theater gig, and I thought I'd pile 'em up and take some pictures just for the heck of it. It's a shame I can't play them in my apartment!

Is there a reason why most of your cymbals don't have fasteners?

I just wanted to take pictures, not play them.

I simply love 'em! They have a dark, colorful and mellow tone which is quite pleasant to the ear. Not too loud, not at all piercing or abrasive. The Dark Ride is heavy and dry, has a lot of stick definition and a killer bell, whereas the Thin Ride sounds softer and has more wash. The thin crash has a lovely, full sound, and it's a great sounding exclamation point for situations where you don't need that ear-bleeding volume and projection. It won't work for riding due to its size and, indeed, lack of volume, but who rides on a 16" crash anyway...

The Byzances fill the sonic space under my bright A Customs, and the rides feel very good under the stick. The Thin ride is applicable in many situations from jazz to rock, but the Dark ride is more suited forr jazz and its close relatives.

Nice cymbals, I have a question though. I see that your hi-hat stand is the Yamaha HS950 (i think) and I was wondering how smooth the action is? I'm looking at the HS1000 you see, its the same model but with only 2 legs. Cheers.

I have the Yamaha 950 hi-hat stand and I would definitely recommend it. It is very smooth, has nice response and feeling and it is extremely durable without weighing as much as my car. I had a DW 9000 hi-hat stand that I sold because it did not have the feel of the Yamaha, and it weighed a ton.

It is very smooth, and at the same time the stand is extremely rugged and stable. As a little experiment, I clamped a 20" thin ride, an 18" china and a 10" splash onto it in addition to the hats, and it didn't wobble one bit... This is easily the best hi-hat stand I've ever had my foot on.

Thanks Wavelength and Chunkaway, you confirmed what I thought anyway, Yamaha make the best hardware, period. I'll be investing in either the HS1000 or the HS1100 then, thanks again.
