  1. Introducing myself, and my current collection

    Hello all. I have lurked on this site since the old forums, created an account on the new forums 2 years ago, and finally posted for the first time today.

    I live in Florida, I'm a recovering software developer and an irrecoverable jazz musician.

    The good stuff (updated Nov 8 2017):

    14" K New Stamp hats - 844/936
    14" A 50's Stamp hats - 805/815 (815 on top sounds great)
    15" A Late 40's Trans Stamp hats - 859/873

    This is the heart of things. I was having this same sort of discussion yesterday with a saxophonist

    I agree with Mers. I saw Jorge live once in Vancouver BC in a quintet with Seamus Blake. Jorge played like Tony that night. Had a too heavy chain on one of his cymbals.....................and he made it sound GREAT. Badd dude!
