Thanks Steph, The main ride is a 21" Istanbul Sultain Jazz. The sizzler on the right is a vintage 22" Paiste 2oo2 ride that I drilled for 8 rivets. The left side ride is an Istanbul Agop Traditional 18" 1706 grams. Hats are 14" Istanbul Sultan. Right crash is 19" K Custom Hybrid. Splash is 11" K Custom Hybrid.Nice playing! I'm kinda new to the swing jazz thing. I can appreciate both the drum quality, selection, and the playing skill. What is the ride cymbal down low to the right? Also, is that hardware original or did you upgrade? I was unaware that kits from that era came in anything except slotted mounts. Of course I've only owned one older kit, and that was a Ludwig kit my brother got from a Buddy Rich clinic (mom bought him the kit Buddy played on) in Arizona in the mid 70s. That kit had slotted tom mounts and was the first kit I played on.
Nice looking kit!!!
I really enjoyed this, Bob. There's nothing more cool than seeing someone play who loves what they are doing. Thanks for the clip!Thanks all, I have been really getting into the Swing style during the past year. I hooked up with some great jazz players who helped me move up a few notches.
The old adage about playing with people who are better than you to improve is true.
The vibes that I get from my vintage kits also helps. Mojo is a real phenomenon.
I was told that this Slingerland kit was once owned by a really advanced player.
I sometimes feel that he channels through me when I play the kit.
