Default What's in your cymbal bag?

So, what do you guys take to gigs or what do you just keep in your cymbal bags in general?

In mine I usually take :
21" A Sweet Ride
18" A Custom Crash
16" Agean Crash
14" Sabian XS20 hats

Sometimes, I take a 12" splash, but not often.
on a cymbal hunt at the moment, but can't really find anything nice apart from K Custom Hybrids which are expensive. :(

I have a few "sets" I take out. The one I took out last weekend was:

22" K Light Ride
19" K Dark Crash
18" Sabian Vault Crash
16" Sabian HHX Evolution
15" 1950s A thin hats

...quieter gig in a large, live room. I needed some cymbals that were very light, quick to respond/open up, and full of tone at quiet volumes.

Two bags:

Metal setup:

14" Rude bottom over Z Custom Master Sound bottom Hats
17" Z Custom Med Rock
17" Z Custom Rock
18" Z Custom Med Rock
19" Z Custom Rock
22" Power Slave Ride (not Sig series)
20" K Custom China

Funk and all else non-Metal:

13.25 K Custom Hybrid hats
14" K Custom Fast
17" K Custom Fast
17" K Custom Dark
22" K Custom Vintage Ride

Just scored the Hybrid hats and really excited about them. Two of my Ks were used from a friend of mine who needed cash, they were in very good condition and saved a bunch of $ on the purchase!

Default Re: What's in your cymbal bag?

I carry all my giging cymbals with me no matter what set up I choose to use. It consists of:

21" Sabian Raw Bell Dark Ride
20" Paiste 602 Medium Ride
16" Zildjian A Crash/Splash
14" ditto
8" Sabian splash
pr 15" Zildjian A hats

Occasionally I add another cymbal or two for special gigs.

Yes, it gets pretty heavy.

Default Re: What's in your cymbal bag?

The 14" New Beats for sure.

For the ride sometimes it's the 21" AAX Stage Ride, but more often it's the 22" A Medium

Zildjian crashes: 18" A Custom Projection, 19" A Custom Crash, 20" K Crash/Ride (thinking about flipping the AC Proj for a regular AC Crash...)
Sabian crashes: 18" HHX-Plosion, 20" AAX Xplosion, and I just won a 19" HHX-Plosion so it'll be fun to see where that fits in to the mix.

I also have a stack that I've been dragging around for the last 20 years: 18" K Dark under a 17" Signature Full Crash. Both have long since broken and large chunks are missing. I'm toying with the idea of getting an 18" vented cymbal to replace them, though. Either an A Custom EFX or an AAX O-Zone. Haven't decided yet.

Yeah, these all make the bag(s) pretty heavy, so I usually have to do some coin flipping to get it down to 3 crashes and a ride before loading out to a show. I'm usually mixing the Sabians and Zildjians so the number of combinations gets pretty outta hand and deciding gets tough. But I'm usually wanting an 18,19, 20 crash setup so that helps.

Looked at Murat Diril cymbals? ADC in Liverpool have a great selection and decent pricing. Very good on the phone, too.

I'm even simpler! I only take my 14" New Beats, 18" A Thin Crash, and my 20" K Custom Dark Ride. That's all I need.

I'm debating going even simpler and getting a 19" Sabian Omni to replace both the aforementioned ride and crash....

21" Zildjian Avedis Sweet Ride (ride and a crash)
14" Sabian XS20 Hi-Hats (sometimes I do a ZXT/Sabian combo

I also have a pro-mark sizzler that I use on my ride too!

22 inch Zildjian Ride 60s
24 inch Zildjian Ride 60s
18 inch Zildjian Crash 60s
18 inch Zildjian K Session Crash 2008
16 inch Zildjian Crash 70s
14 inch Zildjian hi-hats late 60s

I brought both rides because we were recording in a very large room, I did not know which would be better. I ended up using he 22 inch instead of the 24 inch.

When I practice in the studio with the band I use:
20 inch K Session ride 2008
18 inch K Session crash 2008
16 inch zildjian crash 50s
14 inch zildjian hi-hat Early 60s

Lately it's been rock `n roll time: 14" Armand hats, 18" & 19" A custom crashes, 20" K heavy ride and a couple A splashes (6" & 8") inverted on top of the crashes. A 12" Oriental trash china sometimes makes it on there as well.

All Zildjian A's for me.....

14" New Beat Hi-Hats
12" Splash
16" Medium-Thin Crash
16" Medium Crash
18" Medium Crash
22" Ping Ride
20" China Low......I use a Wuhan 18" China at home but the damn thing won't fit into the cymbal case with it's large, knobby, bell. So it stays home.

When it's time to upgrade and buy new cymbals, I'll go with a 20" Ping Ride and an 18" China. Maybe even drop that 18" Medium Crash to a 17"......when I bought these big cymbals back in 1999, I was into metal more. Recently, I ditched the 2nd bass drum, went to fusion size smaller drums....... may as well scale back the cymbal sizes too. :D

Default Re: What's in your cymbal bag?

Depends on the gig. I always carry a stick bag with some fresh Vic Firth sticks (5AN or 8D). The most common setup for my gigs is:

21" Zildjian A Sweet Ride (natural finish)
18" Zildjian A Custom Medium Crash
17" Paiste 2oo2 Crash
14" Sabian XS20 14" Medium Hats
+ Sometimes a trashed old 10" Stagg splash, turned inside out to make kind of a mini china-sound.

If I go with just one crash I always choose the Paiste. It's the best crash I've ever played.
The Zildjian A Custom-crash doesn't really fit in with the rest of my cymbals. It is a little too washy - it has literally no tone at all, just 100% wash. Maybe I'll get rid of it and buy a Sabian HHX or a Paiste Twenty instead. Time will tell.

Oh, and when I play jazz gigs, all I carry is my 21" Sweet Ride and my XS20 hihat. No need for more cymbals than that.
