    Rogers Bop for Camco

    FYI - Maxwells has what looks like a 3D moire shell bank. BD is definitely bigger than 20x14 though. It looks like there may be a second smaller BD. I caught a glimpse of them in this video

    Help me ID this Agop - Post Split?

    Local seller has this listed as a 70s Agop but I'm pretty sure that's not right. I read that Zilciler was the company's name until around 82 then it changed to Istanbul. Anyway, after looking at the cymbal smith's signatures and noticing a lack of stamp denoting the "type" I'd say this is a...

    Best method for inlay mounting?

    I've used DAP contact cement for inlays with great success. *edited - you should probably try to clean up any glue/residue on the back of the inlay first. Afterwards you'll want to rough it up slightly with...

    What are your impressions of this ride cymbal?

    I’m pretty sure this is the Larnell Lewis’ go to ride. I think it sounds amazingly musical in context.

    Some Steve Jordan Photos Different Kits

    What was Steve “Getdwa” playing back when he was with the Blues Brothers? I can quite make out his set. It kinda looks like a Gretsch RB (concert Tomafied) with Slingy hardware. Man he really swang all those Blues Brothers tunes.

    Remo Classic Fit?

    I called my guy Mike at Sweetwater and he placed a direct order for a 22” (diplomat) Fiberskyn. He said they are usually a special order.

    Update- reply from Istanbul Agop rep - Agop Signature Hats

    Scott said he’s never seen this on a pair of hats- EVER! So... Istanbul’s quality control missed this, Maxwell’s missed this, and the original owner missed it. The odds are astronomical. The way my luck is going with this cymbal I’d probably get run over by Sasquatch on the way to Ace...

    Update- reply from Istanbul Agop rep - Agop Signature Hats

    Scott said “we are equipped to do the reaming in the US”. I believe I’ll still be able to say it was crafted in Istanbul right?

    Update- reply from Istanbul Agop rep - Agop Signature Hats

    Deepsoul, JDA, Butch1970, and others... Thanks for all the suggestions and while I appreciate your confidence, I'm just not comfortable filing down this cymbal. The original owner and DFO seller (who has been great btw) put me in touch with Scott at Istanbul Agop. I sent him an email...

    Update- reply from Istanbul Agop rep - Agop Signature Hats

    That's the thing that is frustrating - I can't even tell what it sounds like because the bottom cymbal is so stiff and choked.
