I finally made it into the Flaming Pedals of Doom. That was the longest and toughest audition I ever had to endure!

Although I drool over rides and think they're essential to jazz drumming, I'd rather have a set of hats to chick as I'm swishing/swinging with brushes. My bluegrass busking setup has neither, just suitcase, snare, and two heavy shakers from slap happy set on the edge of the snare for hat/washboard type contrast. Btw, shakers on the snare is awesome because you can get both sounds depending on dynamics and pick them up too.
It depends on the song, But I do love it when you bury that stick right in that sweet spot where the bell of the ride begins when it calls for it, playing quarter notes right in the pocket offsetting the thump of the bass and crack of the snare, kinda like the start of "Susie Q" by CCR.

Many people think the voice is the most expressive instrument. Others think it's the violin. I know better; it's the hi-hat.

If I HAD to choose, Id pick ride I suppose. There are times live, when I dont lay into hats much as I notice that unless they are mic'd, they dont cut through the sound enough like the A Cust Ride can.
