Selling my 2002 ride from 1985. All of the ink stamps are long gone, only marking left is the Paiste stamp and serial number. Incredibly heavy cymbal, the hammering, thickness, and heaviness leads me to believe this is a heavy ride. I don't have a scale other than the one in the bathroom, and the results show this thing is at least 7.5 pounds.

Incredibly powerful cymbal, it has a sharp ping, clear bell, and LOUD wash. You will not be lost in the mix with this bad boy. If you would like to hear it in context, it's all over the second half of this track (it's also the ride I'm using in the video):

I'm not entirely sure how much one of these are worth, so I'll start with $300 USD plus shipping. Feel free to make offers and work out something with me, you will not be disappointed with this cymbal.

Demo:

Thanks!

Luke

Really nice playing on that track, Luke.
GLWS!

Cheers, Dave! Glad you dug the music. I got myself a 24" Giant Beat and it's everything I've ever wanted in a ride, so this guys' gotta go. Hopefully it finds a home soon!

At least you've got the ink stamps on the cymbal still! When I got my cymbal, the previous owner cleaned the hell out of it, so no signs of the original stamps on mine. Out of curiosity, what's the weight of your cymbal?
Heavy. ;)

Seriously, I have no clue. I just know when I was a kid and got it I loved how clean sounding it was in the store and it seemed to ring & ring. It’s seems to have lost a lot of that due to the years & years of dirt buildups.

I also remember it cost me $165 brand new.

Fair enough! My research shows that these things weigh around 3,500 grams, or 7.5ish pounds - HEAVY!

Give the Paiste cymbal cleaner a shot! That'll bring back a lot of that bright ping and full wash these cymbals are great for projecting.

I'm also having difficulty with finding a fair price to ask for this cymbal, I haven't found a lot of old heavy rides in the completed sales on eBay.

I have a 2002 22" heavy ride which is also labeled "jazz/rock" that I wouldn't sell for $500.
Its perfect.

I now have reason to believe this is actually a Power Ride, not a Heavy Ride - not sure how much of a difference that plays into anything, but worth noting!

Alright folks, work with me here. I'm $300 short of reaching an-over-year-long goal of getting myself a set of cymbals I've been saving up for. The money from this cymbal will go straight towards those other cymbals. I'm motivated to get this cymbal gone! Now $200 plus shipping. Please reach out and let me know if you're interested. This guy's gotta go!!!

I'll throw in a deal. For $300 plus shipping, you'll get this cymbal PLUS the Mono cymbal gig bag I'm selling separately. The bag goes for $180 new, I wanted to get $140 out of it, but I'll throw it in with this cymbal for $100. Help me out!

Luke
