    Default If you could only choose one cymbal

    If you could only choose one of your cymbals, what would it be?

    Mine: 21" HH raw bell dry ride. It's the cymbal I use the most. Couldn't play without it.

    16" Meinl Byzance traditional thin crash. My favourite cymbal by far.

    Probably my Paiste 2002 19" crash.

    Something about a 19" that, to my ears, is so perfect.
    DW drums and Paiste cymbals.

    I'm a hi-hat kinda guy. I find I can do so much with a hi-hat and so many expressions and feels.

    Doesn't matter what hi-hat cymbals just hi-hats for my answer.

    21" sweet ride
    I did not trip and fall. I attacked the floor and I believe I am winning.

    Like Spaz I would have to go for hi hats as they are (IMO) the most versatile cymbal. One of those (new?) dual style rides may be another option but I have never played one.

    I'd probably use some larger (16") hats................that way I could get a decent crash sound out of them, along with the "chick"

    It would have to be my Zildjian 18in Medium Crash (hollow logo). I know, I know, very common cymbal.
    I hunted for a hollow logo one that was like the one I had to sell years ago (I was broke). Took a while but I got it. This ones going in the pine box with me

    if the choice is limited to what we own, mine would be 22"omni. I would want hats though. You know, hats or no hats. It's the omni.

    20" A Custom ride.

    It's a great ride, and it's thin enough to use as a crash.

    Realistically the Giant Beat 15 inch hi hats, as they are the most versatile. But my favorite sounding cymbal is my 18 inch Rude Crash from Paiste

    I would take my SABIAN SR2 18 inch Thin because it is good crash and a decent ride. Peace and goodwill.
