This is a nice 20” Impression Prototype jazz ride. Weight is 1954g. There are no markings or stamps on it. The person I bought it from picked it up at the Impression factory in Istanbul. It has nice thin edges and a fairly flat profile. This cymbal is very trashy and dark sounding with dry wash. It’s drilled for 4 rivets which I will include. Lots of nice hand hammering on this cymbal. $150 shipped.

I just added a video I took with my iPhone. The audio isn’t great but hopefully it helps.

I have a 21" that's a bit similar, low sound with clear stick definition, lots of undercurrent/wash, but not high or piercing. They (used to?) custom-lathe cymbals for visitors of the foundry.

That sounds like a great jazz cymbal to me. The wash is low and nicely supports the ping. Folks looking for this kind of sound should jump on this one.

And, I'll bet that rivets really bring it alive. Not to mention the variety of sounds that various stick styles would coax forward.

Thanks guys. It is a really nice sounding cymbal. I just keep going back to my 22” and this one deserves to be played.
