Took a chance on this 22" Prototype Flat from a GC in Idaho and scored big. Marked "AAX" underneath.
Beautful tah stick, weighs 2230g yet wobbles like crazy. It has the lowest tension I've ever experienced in a ride.
The tape residue had to come off, and with it so went the ink :(

Cymbal arrived today. Was expecting a rigid, 3900g AA type but it is far from it. It is a 2250g with AAX style hammering, wobbles like it is 1600g...no cracks or major dings...great stick and sound...this is shaping up to be my best buy of the year!
Just have to figure...
A used prototype 22" Sabian Flat Ride from GC.
The risky parts of it (there are many):
Has two strips of tape and some other tape ghosting across the top. "Warning signs" IMO.
Can't tell if its an AA or HH (the usual terrible GC pics prevent a good ID)
No idea how much it weighs
No idea how...
Love these isolated tracks!
Lot of incredible cymbal sounds on this amazing track... and I dont think they are all the same brand.
Hi-hats: 15" New Beats
Main Crashes: gotta be Paiste 2002's! (an 18 and a 20?)

'Tis a nice Bosphorus day
2100g Glassy Ride 21. Got two now (a 2250). Love the "tah" stick of this model. I think it is because of the umbrella profile.
1906g ->1900g Masters 21. An older version. Very smooth. I'm not a tape residue and super heavy patina guy because of the deadness that...
If you've got satellite radio you know this one as it is on all the time.
The tight snare, the toms and the playing sound more modern than "1977".
Like early 90's (Chris Whitten ?)
Paul's vocals too
Am I on the mark or do my ears deceive me?
I might be a little upset if I bought this thinking it was the actual ride used on the tune...
According to Steve here it isn't, because he still has it! :)
You can’t sustain the current house prices with the current rates. The fuel for the frenzy the past 2 years was historically low interest rates coupled with low inventory. Now one of those key components is missing.
Are you referring to interest rates being that key component missing?
IMO 5 -...
When looking at franchise models some time ago I read that, on average, 1/3 are going to do well and be profitable, 1/3 are going to break even at best, and 1/3 will always be unprofitable due to their locations and the overhead of the spaces.
I know GC's are not franchised but assuming the...
Has anyone seen recent Bon Jovi, Crue/VNeil or Whitesnake shows in person or on youtube?
They can no longer belt out the songs as they were recorded when their voices were young, but still try.
New versions are in order to keep the party going.
They do sound nice!
Great additions for the Paiste fanatics looking for new sounds
a 22" is probably $605 (or more now)
a just as nice/maybe nicer Bos flat is $400-440
the difference is not chump change
