For the last several years I've been gigging with two different setups, a 12/13/15/16/22 for big band and rock gigs, and 10/12/14/15/20 for small group jazz. I also have two different sets of cymbals for the sets. In the meantime, I also have a 10/12/14/16/22 Catalina Maple for home use that I've been really pleased with.

Recently I had the chance to bring my gigging sets inside to play while rehearsing my small group, and to play with tunings and tweak the racks, and I'm considering a rethink. I'd already settled on a single set of ride and crashes for all gigs, and am seriously thinking about going to a 10/12/14/16/20 for everything, too, or even 8/10/12/14/16/20.

I'm doing some home recording that will help with the decision, and it may not happen. My big band has a gig in January where I may try the "smaller" setup to see how it works out. Until then, I'm interested in others' experiences with different sizes. How did you decide what sizes to play? How do you tune? High? Low? Dead? What do you think?
