Thin out the zildjian constantinople. The 60 year old cymbal sounds great.

oh man.... thank goodness Philly's cymbal is still in good hands. It's part of our heritage. That ride is on another level in sonority. New K is nice, but needs to be buried in dirt for a couple of yrs, or needs more time to oxidize.

That new 20" sounds great. I'd be curious to hear a 22" version.

It does sound nice. All of my ride cymbals are 22" and I've been thinking of going back to 20" rides recently.
Positioning is easier (you can have the bell a bit closer) and they blend in nicely. Plus, it seems that everyone
is using 22" rides now. It might be time to go in a different direction.

Now He Sings, Now He Sobs was recorded on an 18" flat ride!

Speaking of legendary clone rides... the Sabian Royalty ride modeled after the sings/sobs cymbal:
