    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...

    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.

    22” Bosphorus Master Ride - 2198g

    For sale is a 22” Bosphorus Masters ride cymbal. Weighing just under 2200 grams, this is a very versatile cymbal that works as well for pop, indie, blues, R&B, etc., as it does for jazz. The only reason I’m selling it is because it’s similar to another cymbal I own and I don’t need both. Very...

    Istanbul Mehmet Dark Crash Profile

    A few years ago, I had an 18" Istanbul Mehmet Dark Crash. It was pretty heavy for a crash and didn't taper much towards the edge. Does anyone know if their current dark crashes have the same profile? Thanks

    Michael Jerome

    I just saw Richard Thompson’s trio with Michael Jerome on drums. Everyone I was with commented on what an amazing drummer he is. It made me wonder if I’d be a better player if I got my arms lengthened. The whole band was fantastic. Rock is supposed to be a young person’s game, but one of the...

    A Guitar Center Used Gear first!

    A few days ago, I ordered a cymbal from GC's used site. It took them a few days to pack it up, but before they put it into the box and sent it off, someone from its location called to tell me that the listing had the wrong size and asked if I still wanted it or wanted to cancel it. This was a...
