Since I once cut a B8 into an Octagon (it didn't wound horrible) I think this is also home made...but looking at the cymbal itself...I'm guess it was cut down from a Rude.

I asked the guy about the edges and if he made it or bought it that way...I never got a reply. I'm not touching it (even with your sticks)...but was curious what you thought.

The reputed diameter of 16" and the photo showing 4,000g on a digital scale display suggest something is inconsistent in the description.

Sabian made their Rockatagon. They sound horrible. I think that might be Sabian since occasionally the label comes off if played a lot.

I've had Sabian Rocktagons and that's not one. The real thing is lathed, that one is not. It definitely looks like a Pearl Wild or Camber Savage Rude clone cut down.

Anyone know what Chris Dave's Rocktagon is in this video? Some unlathed thing. Maybe an AA Rawktagon?
