    Online Cymbal Sellers that Have Videos or Soundfiles of the Exact Cymbal

    I'd find it useful to have a list of online cymbal sellers that have soundfiles or videos of the exact cymbal you'll get. Here's what I've found: Memphis Drum Shop / (Tennessee, USA): CymbalsOnly (New York, USA):

    Why are 24" Agops so much more expensive than 22" Agops?

    Does anyone know why there is such a huge price jump between 22" and 24" Istanbul Agop cymbals? For example, a 22" Traditional Dark ride sells for $459 new while a 24" goes for $649 new, a difference of $190. Meanwhile, a 26" is only $25 more than a 24". It's also true of their Xist cymbals...

    Lightweight non-flat mini-boom stand?

    Can anyone recommend a good lightweight mini-boom stand that doesn’t have a flat base? The only one I’m finding online is the Sonor 2000 series single-braced, but I can’t find its weight anywhere. Is that the only one currently available or is there something else I should look at? Also, does...

    Drummers playing 26" or larger cymbals?

    Some of the recent discussions here about large cymbals made me wonder: who are some famous drummers known for playing 26" or larger cymbals? I know that Stan Kenton had a 26" and even a 27" cymbal the drummers in his big bang -- including Peter Erskine -- all played, and that Hunt Sales played...

    Please ID this Avedis Zildjian stamp

    I recently got an A. Zildjian cymbal that was advertised as a 1960s vintage, but looks to be older. It has the small center hole. The stamp is 1 1/8” tall or maybe a tiny bit shorter. The lettering isn’t pressed well, but the Arabic script is pretty clear and is much less smooth than other...

    SOLD 22” Istanbul Mehmet Mikael Z Tribute cymbal

    For sale is a 22” Mehmet Mikael Z ride. 2353 grams. Very good condition with stick marks and a little tape residue, but no problems. This may be the best 22” ride I’ve ever owned. Sweet and smooth, not trashy at all. I never thought I’d sell this one, but I’m just not using 22’s as much as...

    SOLD 22” Dream paper thin Crash-Ride

    For sale is a 22” Dream Crash-Ride. When I got it, I weighed it with my old scale and wrote that weight under the bell (1735 grams). Since then I got a new scale, which says this cymbal weighs 1750 grams. I have no idea which weight is right, but in any case, it’s paper thin. There‘s no ink...

    Does anyone know which hat stands will work with Gibraltar’s metric pull rods? In particular, do they fit Sonor hat stands (mine’s an early 90s Force 1000)? Here’s the specs from Gibraltar’s website: SC-HHRM Hi Hat Pull Rod(Metric) – Replacement hi-hat pull rod – 23″ long, 6.5 mm diametrer –...

    Mystery Sabian Ride

    Here’s a 24” Sabian ride that’s unlike any other Sabian I’ve seen before, so I assume it’s a prototype. I wonder if anyone here could give me more information about it. Aside from the Sabian logo, there’s no ink. It weighs 3099 grams. Umbrella profile like a Mehmet Nostalgia 50s ride...

    Soultone / Amedia connection?

    Does anyone know if Soultone sometimes uses Amedia to make their cymbals? The reason I ask is because I’ve only ever seen this font stamped on those two brands.
