I only have two rides:
Zildjian A 21" Sweet ride
Meinl MCS 20"

Hats: Zildjian A custom 14" Mastersounds

But im also probably buying/want to buy Paiste Alpha Medium Hats and a Paiste Signature ride.
The Sweet ride is very versatile, therefore the only ride I use this far, but I want a ride with more clarity so I'm interested in a Paiste signature ride(Probably 20")

It's been a while since I replied here, and was probably being modest by not posting my totals. But I'm proud of my collection, so here goes:

181 pairs of hats
248 rides

And an additional 44 crash-rides

:)

Never easy to follow a Bermuda post on a topic like this, however It's time for an update!

Hats: 4 and 2 halves
-13" K Hats
-13" Z Custom Dyno Beats Bottom - Top half cracked long ago but can't find a reason to part with it.
-14" 60's A Thin Top (bought as a set with a second, thin bottom), with a 70's A New Beats Bottom. Makes a hell of a combo.
-14" Byzance Sand Hats (most of the time I swap out the top for the second Thin A that I have from the pair mentioned above
-15" Sabian SR2 Medium Hats (used for heavier playing, one day I hope to swap them for 15" K Lights)

Rides: 8
-20" A Custom Medium Ride - Still my favourite to this day
-20" K Heavy Ride - plays like a much lighter ride with the projection you'd expect from a heavier model
-20" Byzance Sand Ride
-21" Byzance Sand Crash/Ride (cut down because of a small crack)
-21" HHX Raw Bell Dry Ride - Purchased because of a metal band I joined but can't get it to speak how I'd like. Gonna sell it soon.
-21" Vault Calhoun Ambient Ride
-22" K Constantinople Medium-Thin, High Ride - LOVE THIS TO DEATH
-22" Vintage A Thin-ish ride (60's)

Wow Bermuda very expansive volume!
Write-off as operational expense in years of purchasing, or appraise, insure, and capitalize your inventory?🧐
(Sorry I’m an accountant, and you don’t have to answer.) 😌

By the way I have:
20” AAX metal ride
13” AA fusion hats
14” AAX fast hats

I’m thinking this is more of a retirement fund than a quiver of brass. 🤔

On the one hand I have 5 HH pairs. On the other hand, EVERY cymbal I own is a ride cymbal.

I just replaced my Zildjian ZBT 20" ride with a Paiste pst-7 20" medium ride. I soon hope to do the same with my hi-hats and 16" crash.

Ultimately, they're an investment, and a wise one judging by the rising price of used cymbals!

BTW, a good day in Toronto - I now have 182 pr of hats and 249 rides.
