    Up first is a beautiful 30th anniversary 18" crash. 1297g. Purchased new at Chicago Music Exchange last year, and played less than 1 hour.
    $275 + ship
    Next is an amazing and rare-as-hen's-teeth pair of prototype pair of 25th anniversary 15" hi-hats. 1005/1140g. 1 of only 6 pairs ever made, these were never put in to production, and were purchased from a fellow dfo brother/Istanbul Agop endorser, who happened to be in the right place & right time to snag them.
    $450 plus ship.

    Any chance you’d trade the hats for some 14” 30ths?

    Do not have a soundfile, but there are youtube videos of the original 25th issue near this weight, and this cymbal is very close to those in pitch and sustain. It is, in a word, a spectacular cymbal....

    hey man, there's a chance i might be able to get out there today. i have to hit chicago music exchange and if i have time, and you're around, maybe i'd stop by? anyway, i just can't remember the pitch of that 20.5 and the video didn't give me a sense. and, as it turns out, i might be interested in the hats. but again, i couldn't tell anything from the video. i know i'm looking for this:

    dark, trashy and splashy. i can't really see if the surface of the 25ths is extensively like the OMs or if it's sorta smooth but i'm def. wanting the more intense hammering for the trashier/agoppy sound.
