Live Rig
Amp: Eden WT-1205 (with two preamp channels and two independent inputs). 

Speakers:
2- Eden 410XLT cabs. 

I split the signal coming out of my bass and run one line into my Digitech RP-21d pedalboard and the other directly into one channel of the WT-1205. 
 
The output from the Digitech RP-21d goes into the remaining input of the Eden WT-1205.
 
I EQ the highs and mids out of the direct channel so that it is only low end and blend that with the Digitech channel since the settings I use on the Digitech pedalboard give me a sound lacking in low end.
Recording
For recording I just go direct into Cubase (or ProTools or whatever) and use the IK Multimedia plug-in Ampeg SVX. 
 
Before that plug in was available I used to go through the Digitech pedalboard and into a LIne 6 Bass POD (the POD was to simulate an amp, speaker and mic).
 
Before that I would actually set up my whole rig and put a mic on it.  It was often very difficult to find an isolated room to do that, so I am very grateful for modern technology.

Cymbals

Paiste Cymbals

Cymbals vary a great deal with the session or gig but most of the time:

20" Traditional Medium Ride
20" Giant Beat
16" Signature Precision Thin Crash
18" Dark Energy Crash
10" Signature Splash
8" 2002 Splash
18" Signature China
13" Signature Dark Crisp Hi-hats

I've been known to also use a 20" Twenty Ride or 20" Signature Dry Ride but these are for very specific settings. Live cymbals vary mostly for durability. 

I use a Yamaha DTX 12 Multipad to trigger additional percussion sounds or the rare extra track. This in conjunction with a Focusrite Saffire PRO 40 which also acts as my monitoring device into a MacBook Pro running Mainstage 2 (part of the Logic Studio package). 

Microphones: Audio Technica

Kick: ATM 250DE with a May Systems internal mounting device
Snare: ATM 650
Hi-Hat: ATM 450

Floor Toms: AE 3000

My Vocal Mic is currently a custom made EV/ND 486 with a 767 capsule. We're working on something with AT.

Lately I've been using the Josh Freese H-220's.
