At rehearsal for the big band a couple of weeks ago the percussionist teased me for taking longer to pack up than him. I bring stick bag and cymbals to use on the set I leave there, and while he usually has more gear to pack he's started leaving some there, and beat me out.

As I thought about it I realized that I have enough cymbals to put a set together to leave permanently, lacking only two crashes. So the next week I took my #3 ride, a 70's 22" A medium, a 70's 20" A swish, my #3 set of A hats, a 13" A that started as half a pair of hats in the 30's, an 8" A splash, and my #2 set of 16" and 18" A crashes I bought in the late 70's. The hats have a little less chick than I like, but otherwise the set was more than acceptable.

In the meantime, I'd searched, found, and bid on a 16" A crash that looked pretty thin, and am awaiting its arrival. And today on a whim I went by my local GC, where I found a used 18" Armand medium thin with a very nice sound and reasonable price that someone had sold yesterday.

When the 16 arrives I'll take pics. The 13 won't be able to stay because its center hole is too small for the tilter at rehearsal, so a 14" A Zildjian and Cie will go, and the 13 will stay home.

I haven't felt a need for new gear of any kind in a long time, so this was something of a surprise for me, and it all happened pretty quickly. Anyway, my birthday was yesterday, so I'm just calling them my present to myself, and the next time the big band rehearses will be the last time I have to pack or bring cymbals for it.
