    High Hat ID Help please?

    I picked up a set of 13" high hats with no marks, ink, or stamps that I can see, I'm hoping someone here can help. :) Pics- The lighter one is 550 grams, the heavier...

    Searching for info on a newly acquired cymbal...

    ...and the search function isn't helping much. Please excuse me as I am a noob when it comes to cymbals. I think I may have a 50s Zildjian ride cymbal. Would a "small stamp b" 50s Zildjian be late 50s? Would a 20" sizzle ride from that era have had 6 small rivet holes originally? Would such a...

    Relatively new to this, and I have a dumb question...

    ...please forgive me. How are "concert" or symphonic cymbals different from "drum set" cymbals, if at all, besides their respective placements? Is there any difference in hammering or lathing, in tone, or in use, from a drum set user's perspective, when the cymbal is on a standard cymbal...

    Hello...I'm new to this...

    Hi. I'm a long time semi-pro bass player who's always wanted to play drums. The last year or so, I have been doing that, via thrift stores, pawn shops, and online sales. It's really fun, and I really enjoy learning, which is good because I am learning new things everyday. I guess I'm the new...
