last night i went to see the great John Kilzilarmut and asked him about his cymbals. He had the best k light flat ride id ever heard but what caught my attention was his 22” k constantinople. it was less weight that any K con id ever seen at around 2000g. it also had a thin ink stamp...
i’m wondering if cymbal cleaner would even take the patina off of them, but if it could i would. i like the sound, the look, the whole vibe of avedis cymbals but i absolutely want to take off the patina and logo. has anyone else done this? would it ruin them? structurally i mean, with tarnish...
washy, prominent, cascading sizzles (as per a few rivets) and just overall “lushness” is the vocabulary i would use to describe the cymbal sound of mitch mitchell, and the cymbal sound i want to be able to get. my idea for sizes are 14, 17-18 crash, a 20 inch ride with rivets, and a nice crashy...
Professional, custom, and artist cymbals.
I’m changing my sounds up and letting some nice ones go.

I have a 17" Zildjian K Custom Dark Crash for sale. Looking for $275 shipped. It's a great cymbal but I mostly play Sabian and have no need for this in my collection. No cracks or key marks. Price is shipped in the states.
Any questions just ask!
Just picked up a nice set of Zildjian 15" hi-hats. The seller was estimating them as 70's era hats. I'm looking at the stamps and they look like they might be two different styles. I'm thinking they might be a pair that was "matched-up" by a drummer later on. Probably New Beats?
The stick is so dry, you could choke on it. But that definition is so cool though.
It looks as though this has been discontinued, which is surprising but maybe just not a hip sound anymore.
Either way, this is a ride I haven't used in a couple of years so it's time for it to...
I got this a while back at a Zildjian-sponsored clinic at the LIDC. Zildjians' Paul Francis was on hand and they were getting ready to release the Adam Nussbaum Ride and a 20" version of the Kenny Washington Bounce ride. They brought a bunch of pre-production samples and Paul took a couple of...

Help me fund a Jenkins Martin kit Cymbal Sale
Istanbul Agop 24" Signature Joey Waronker Ride. I purchased this cymbal new in 2016 and have moved away from larger cymbals in general. This is an extremely nice sounding specimen. It has a great glassy attack with a dark undertone. No keyholing...
as a bass player now, and also coming of age, i find that i seriously need to find my own ways to make and spend money on things i want. no more mommy and daddy. and the other day i remembered i had a little trove of cymbals i don’t use anymore under my bed, and i've become a little out of touch...
I came across these 2 Zildjian crashes and they look like they are from the 60s. But since I'm in Brazil and in a "remote" area on top of it, I'm finding highly unlikely that that is the case. If they are indeed from the 60s it would be the firsts from that period I see here since forever, i...
Back in the mid 90s I played a three night gig. When I packed up I found that the plastic Tama wing nut/sleeve had slipped up just a fraction but that had allowed the cymbal to make contact with the metal of the stand and left a keyhole. The cymbal is a 24” Zildjian K Heavy Ride. Still a...
Anyone have experience or thoughts on 15” Zildjian K Kerope vs 15” Zildjian K Custom Special Dry?
My local shops dont stock both so I unfortunately cannot compare them before buying.
I’m playing Jazz, Blues, and Soul. Occasionally Blues Rock.
Other cymbals in my kit are a 17” Zildjian K...
Hi all - I'm relisting my Tama Star Walnut Mint Green Mist kit. I was having issues with my prior email so had to get a new account. Anyway, I've really priced it to move, the only problem is it is local pickup in Northern Virginia.
Here is the kit. I'm the original owner, I bought it new so...
I already have a 22" K custom Dry Complex ride (first serie) and i love it, so I'm searching k custom dry complex ride II of 20 or 24.
Someone could help me?
Thanks a lot.
