I play drums so I can play cymbals - and I've only ever played Zildjian. Drums you can tune, cymbals you can't so they have to be perfect. My Zildjians always are.
My main set up is:
(L to R)
15" Kerope Hi Hats
20" K. Renaissance Ride
22" K. Thin Overhammered Ride (with rivets)
18" A Custom EFX Crash
20" K Light Flat Ride (with rivets)
I also use about every other cymbal Zildjian makes too. Switching things in and out depending on the gig.
Yamaha Drums are far and away the best sounding and most consistent drums on the market... and their hardware is the greatest. It's simple, compact, light, strong, and lasts forever!
I primarily use 2 Yamaha drum sets
1. Stage Custom Birch in Cranberry Red
(I LOVE THESE DRUMS!)
2. Recording Custom in Piano Black
20/12/14 or 22/13/16
I also use various Recording Custom and
Absolute Hybrid Maple Snare Drums.
What can you say about Remo? it's THE sound. It's certainly my sound. They were the first. They set the tone (and I mean tone!) and they continually set the bar in the industry.
I use all types of Remo heads but I'm partial to:
Coated Vintage Ambassadors
Fiberskyn 3 Diplomats
