    Open handed traditional grip playing

    Cobham, too. But they are both left handed, so the trad grip is in the snare hand. I think the OP's after someone who plays open handed, trad grip on the hihat, matched on snare. Hey, I could be wrong!

    Nick Menza

    That sickdrummer interview was made so long after the Rust In Peace recording, maybe Nick wasn't 100 % on the details. In Nicks interview with Modern Drummer in '92, the ride was a 24" (A) Rock.

    Gavin Harrison here!

    TK-421: They sound as if they are quite thin. To SirSwingsAlot: try Paiste Cup Chimes , you may find them a bit thicker than Gavins bells though.
