Default Re: Blues Cymbal Set Up

1965 Howlin Wolf made his only national TV appearance on ABC's program Shindig, I'm not sure of the drummer (S.P. Leary or Clifton James) either way it was a two cymbal set with hats, in an earlier video S.P. Leary played brushes on dust my broom, with a single ride.
1964 performance in England Clifton James used two cymbals.
I have a few more videos with old footage, but I would venture to guess that a two cymbal set up Most common.
Also large cymbals and likely Zildjian Avedis
Thanks everyone !
My largest is a 20" med ride time to look for a 22" maybe a swish ?
