Offering this near mint 22in Zanki Medium-Heavy Ride cymbal. The only flaws with this (aside from typical patina) is that the ink is not perfect despite being very strong.
In my search to evaluate, I was not able to find a Medium Heavy -- just a 3250ish Heavy that went for $175. This is a more desirable weight at 2990 grams - right in the ballpark of weights I like for the 22 in the B20 alloy. I am needing to trim the arsenal a bit here -- selling because I just have too many rides -- and they all can't get used enough.

IMHO the best feature of this cymbal is the beautiful hammering - often overseen at first glance - but I shot a video just to show it. I SO love cymbals -- especially ones like this - like a piece of art. As for the sound..........Like I said -- I like this weight for the 22s --- because you get the pretty classy ping with enough complexity with resonance for a slick singing of the evening song......with a subtle backdrop of the Italian roar reminding you - that this is a 22. The bell cuts great without losing its character - thanks to the extensive work of the cymbalsmith who fostered this pie into the songstress that she has grown to be in her 30-some years (if not more). Not sure of the dating. My guess is 70s or 80s.

The lathing is extensive on this ROTOCAST specimen -- made in Italy. The stamp is present, just faint - so do not mistake it for a crack.
There are:
NO CRACKS
NO KEYHOLING.......
NOT EVEN ANY FLEABITES on this one. Like I said, aside from the ink and patina, it feels like it came right out of the factory. It's been a long time since I felt an edge like this on a cymbal......smooth all-around.
I have shot a good demo for it -- and also the video showing the hammering.

I think I priced this a bit high.....not for this cymbal, but for this market.

Reducing to $190

Bump........I just listed a bunch of cymbals -- consider several in a bundle to save shipping. Some Kashians up for sale -- might go well with this one. Make an offer........
