With my latest acquisition, a Zildjian A Series 18" crash ride, I now have 25 cymbals in my collection(I count a pair of hi hats as 1). The reason for the crash ride is for minimalist setups where space is a concern, I can go with 1 or maybe 2 cymbals. The most I usually gig with is 3 crashes and a ride, but I like having all the different sounds to choose from. They are all Zildjian from the A, A Custom, K and K Custom series. I have also played Sabian, Paiste, UFIP and Camber, and loved some of them as well, but I'm brand loyal when it comes to cymbals.
