So its been a really long time since I have posted here...(I now have a new job that allows me to be online!!)...I was just wanting to see some of your more unique Cymbal uses...For example I use a 22" Zildjian K Constantinople Medium Thin Ride Low primarily as a crash, and I have an alternate set of hats consisting of a 12" A special recording hi hat Top (as the bottom hat) and a 12" A Splash as the top hat...Along with my main set of hats: A 15" A New Beat bottom hat paired with a 15" K Light Hat top....

I bet that sounds nice!

I haven't used them live or anything, but a 15" Giant Beat top with a 15" 2002 Sound Edge bottom is interesting, at least. It gives the GB hats a much stronger foot chick, but there are some funky overtones and other weirdness that I haven't decided whether I like or not yet. They may or may not work great in a live context, who knows?
