Default How I set up for jazz:



same drums (pacific LX)

i just use the 10 and the 14" toms, open up the muffling on the kick a little bit and loosen the snare batter head and snare wires.

The cymbals here are (l-r)

13" new beat hats
18" zildjian breakbeat ride
22" paiste 505
20" 50's era zildjian flat ride
20" 60's era zildjian swish with 6 rivets

I like your jazz kit set-up better. I'm a 1 up, 2 down kinda guy, so your jazz kit is very similar to my current configuration, being I'm playing with only 1 floor right now, and I have my Roland SPD-S in the rack to position. And right now I'm running my cymbals real low also.

you like it better than what? my big kit?

And the pearl speed saddle only comes to jazz gigs because the roc'n'soc lives in the band trailer... and doesn't fit in my car anyway.

Thanks for the comments!

Heyhey, that looks very comfortable. haha, I just imagined that I would try that one...or playing with the band :-o
What a dream...

However, very nice set-up, you are damn lucky with the 50`s Flattie and the 60`s china!
Have fun!

What kind of Jazz did you and your band play?

Karl

It was a jazz standard kind of gig, like out of the "real" book. It was a quintet with keys, bass, drums, sax and trombone. We played about an hour or so for a big wine tasting/silent auction style fund-raiser for a local theater.

The same group of players got booked into the bar that serves that hotel, which is good because that bar has had the same tired old band in there every week for years. I'll actually be playing with 3 of the 4 jazz groups that are now getting booked in there.

regarding the vintage bronze... i was on ebay at the right time twice in a row. I got the flat for 120 bucks and the riveted swish for 90.

Looks great. I thought that big ride of yours was a Zildjian Constantinople, but i guess i was wrong.

Id love to play it.

Lovely setup, I'm going for something similar.
How do you like the breakbeat ride?
I was thinking about getting one.
