    Default Bonhamís hi hats

    I know he used 15Ē paiste sound edge. Was the bottom hi hat grooved/ wavey at all?
    Were they medium?
    Thanks guys

    If they were “sound edge”, then the bottom hat would have the wavy or rippled edge.

    Not sure on the weight, but as far as I know, all his cymbals were 2002 series.

    Until 1971 he used 15” giant beats, and then switched to 2002 15” sound edge

    What size shoe did he take? Did he wear boxers or briefs? I'm sure somebody out there knows.

    We’re talking about someone who died almost 40 years ago. He will not be forgotten.
