It took me awhile to get this set up. Now the toms are nice and comfy and the ride is in a decent position for my jazz playing.

That ride can't be good for jazz, right? But looks really good!

Buddy Rich never used a dark cymbal for jazz. A lot of authentic old fashion jazz is all with bright, thin, crashable right cymbals. Let alone that hardly matters, the fact is if you like the sound of your cymbals, you should play every genre with them because it is your sound.

Sure, I can see reason in that. My sense of typical jazz rides just can't think of an AAX ride as a good jazz ride. But hey, that's just me. Everybody's got a preference.

Buddy Rich played with a Big Band - where having a bright ride cymbal is actually fairly necessary if you want to be heard. Either it has to be bright, or it has to be dry. In smaller playing situations, a bright ride would seem like an odd choice - but in a Big Band? Absolutely not.
