    20 inch A zil value question

    I agree Tama CW - I highly suspect it's the patina that's making it sound dead, that's why I suggested Brasso to brighten the tone. But I agree, try to sell it first as a dry (and thin?) cymbal, you never know who might want something like that. I don't think I've ever seen a cymbal that's...

    22" New Stamp Istanbul Old K Zildjian

    Thanks! The Isty K market seems to be down a bit now. I have a friend with an old stamp Istanbul K (used to be owned by drummer Rodney Green), he was offered $2K for it a couple years ago and is now kicking himself for not selling it back then.

    22" New Stamp Istanbul Old K Zildjian

    Came here from the now-defunct Looking to move my old K that I don't play much anymore. Heavy-ish (2812 grams) but plays lighter. Here's a Reverb link.
