    Zildjian K Custom Dry Ride - info please!

    There is an “R” on the bottom side. With a magnifying glass I do detect a “C” under “Made in USA”

    Zildjian K Custom Dry Ride - info please!

    Greetings, I picked this cymbal up today off of Craigslist. It’s a heavy ride and seems to fit in nicely with my 14” & 17” K Custom Dark Crashes, and 13” Custom Dark Hats. There is no serial number on this one. The bottom has solid black Zildjian script. Would I be correct in guessing that...

    Help Identifying Paiste 22” Ride

    We’ll I’ll be. Gave it a bath and found some lettering. I believe that it says “Paiste 23 5 2” by the bell. Maybe it’s 234542” but that’s a wild guess. The hammering is not uniform, so maybe it was hand hammered? The bottom lettering looks like paint added over the top of what may have been...

    Sorry all for the delay. The lettering on the bottom appears to be applied on with white paint - perhaps over whatever was there that was fading. I cannot find any serial numbers. I'll give it a cleaning this evening, as recommended, and post up some better pictures.

    I bought a used cymbal and this was thrown in. It’s an absolute beast in terms of weight and sustain. Any idea what model it may be? Age is unknown.

    Non-EAK Custom 18 - what’s this worth?

    OK everyone, so I changed the thread title, as the whole EAK thing was clearly a delicate subject. Let’s get to the other part of my question. :)

    This is what I was referring to. See 1987. https://black.net.nz/avedis/NAK.html#IAK

    Non-EAK Custom 18 - what’s this worth?

    I did some research and believe that this is a 1987(ish) Zildjian (NOT AN EAK) Custom (Ride) 18”. It has very unique markings from the hammering machine, and was also hammered manually (by Zildjian). It’s dark like a K but incredibly bold at the same time. You can crash it but might wake folks...
