I’ve never even owed that many cymbals so maybe that’s the case. In the few cymbals with rivets I’ve sold I’ve been asked if the rivets were factory. The ones that weren’t didn’t seem to go for as high.That’s an interesting take, I’ve bought and sold hundreds of cymbals over the years, and properly drilled rivet holes have had very little effect on resale value. Including old k’s, Spizzichino’s, etc.
I would imagine there’s a difference between old spizz and k’s as they aren’t replaceable and newer cymbals you can buy anytime.
I have 2 spizz, I sold my old k, and I really like the new cymbals coming out, Funch, Roberts, Borba, and more.
I have 2 Istanbul rides which are amazing.
Although all that said, with the amount of gigs out there, I’m pretty much just storing them rather than playing them, but that’s another thread.
I have maybe 10 rides which seems like a good number to have for variety and not over abundance. (Depending who you ask lol).
