Exclamation What Pies are you playing these days...


What are you playing these days and are there any nuances about your setup, your hi-hats, ride, crashes, splashes, china's or anything different with your pie setup? I've got a pie setup,

The Paiste pie setup consists of the 15" Signature 'Heavy' Hi Hats (heavy bottom over sound edge bottom), 12" 'Twenty Series' Splash, 16" '602' Thin Crash, 17" 'Signature' Fast Crash, 18" '602' Thin Crash, 18" '2002' Thin Crash, 18" 'Twenty Series' Thin China and a 20" 'Signature' Dry Ride (wearing a cymbal rattler, until I drill it for rivets).

Any unusual or different approaches to how you like your pies?

Okay, I'm drooling now after that description! I discovered I like a trashy sound so I've added a second set of no name 14 inch hats that sound like garbage cans. I love them.

I saw Steve Smith some years ago, and he was using a set of Oriental Trash Hats that just sounded amazing and extremely 'trashy'. I'm a fan of the sound and the Zildjian Oriental cymbal's are particularly trashy. In particular the 11" Oriental China Splash-very trashy, and the 18" Oriental China-also quite trashy. I really like that sound...



You can see the trash hats on the left side on remote...What an amazing player, and a good guy!

Okay, stupid question of the day: do you play a china splash upside down like you play an 18 or 20 inch china?

No stupid questions, only the one's that are never asked. I personally do not flip it, that said, I know guys who flip them and mount them inverted over a regular mounted cymbal (if that makes any sense...)

Anybody else? Anybody using a set of remote hats that are china trash hats? Just curious...

Re: What Pies are you playing these days...


Just currious, has anyone played or listened to the Formula 602 Series Crashes from Paiste? The ones I refer to are NOT the ones with Vinnie's name on them. I ask because I've just gotten to play with them a bit and I've picked up the new Formula 602 18in Thin Crash. It is silky smooth and amazingly clean. In at 1349grams, it's a bit heavier than my 2002 Thin Crash in at 1311grams.

Re: What Pies are you playing these days...


I've been using 14" hats, a 16" crash, 20" (or is it 21"?) ride, all medium thin Sabian Xs20, and an 18" crash and 10" splash, both medium Paiste Alphas. I can't believe I don't remember the diameter of that ride...

The 16" crash is amazing. It isn't a super high-quality cymbal, but it sounds like one. I got lucky with it, it's just a great cymbal.

Those sound like some awesome setups, by the way.

Hi Butter, I've heard some Alpha's and some xs's that sound amazing. I updated the post as I've gotten rid of my Zildjian setup in favor of a PA, and I've replaced the 16", and 18" Twenty Series, with 602's.
