Bonzo's classic cymbal configuration with a bag and Zep DVD.
This cymbal pack replicates John Bonham's cymbal setup with five Paiste 2002 cymbals, plus a Paiste cymbal bag and Jeff Ocheltree DVD. Made with CuSn8 bronze for a bright, warm, and energetic tone, these cymbals are great for live and studio gigs requiring high energy and the utmost in precision and musicality. The pack consists of a general purpose 24" ride cymbal, the classic 15" Sound Edge hi-hats with a rippled bottom for very clear projection, a versatile 18" crash, a lively 18" medium crash, a 24" cymbal bag, and a Trust Your Ears: The Drum Tech Explorations of Jeff Ocheltree DVD.
The 24" Paiste 2002 Ride is a versatile ride with a penetrating ping and a warm, lively overall sound. This works well for light to medium volume situations. It has a strong bell and wide frequency range. This is the cymbal to nail the classic rock ride sound heard on records since the '60s.
The 15" Paiste 2002 Sound Edge Hi-Hat pair is a classic. The unique rippled bottom prevents air lock, giving an overall sharp "chick" and splashy open sound with very clear cutting projection.
The 18" Paiste 2002 Crash is effective for multiple music applications. Bright and explosive with a warm shimmer that carries well. Very dynamic and full-bodied, with immediate response. Washy stick sound with lively intensity and medium sustain. A good all-purpose crash.
The responsive 18" Paiste 2002 Medium Crash is a bit heavier than the Paiste 2002 Crash. The Medium Crash is very balanced, full, and rich sounding. It projects a nice ride sound in larger venues. Very versatile and works well with louder playing.
The durable Paiste cymbal bag features backpack-style shoulder straps as well as a single shoulder strap for comfortable carrying however it works for you. Vinyl internal dividers separate cymbals to minimize metal-to-metal contact. The rounded front pouch holds cymbals up to 16" or other percussion accessories. Backpack case fits cymbals up to 24".
Jeff Ocheltree transitioned from replaceable roadie to invaluable drum tech by being the first person to take complete care of all aspects of the drums, in the glory days of such legends as Bonham and Cobham. In Trust Your Ears: The Drum Tech Explorations of Jeff Ocheltree DVD, Jeff's first instructional DVD, he discusses his experiences and teaches techniques valuable to drum techs and all drummers — with hands-on examples using 9 different kits and 9 drummers. Jeff also discusses the unique bronze drums he makes from recycled cymbals. As a special bonus, John Bonham's kit used in Zeppelin recordings appears on-screen for the first time ever, and Bonzo's settings, tunings, and mic placements are revealed! 60 minutes.
