Alright....here's another topic started to get our "missing cymbalholic.com fix" !. This is the only recent pic that I have saved of a birds eye view of mine. Cymbals are 50's small stamp avedis hats 660/700 grams, 50's avedis 1 7/8" stamp (heavy top and bottom hammering) 20" on the left side at 1636 grams, super thin edges, 16 rivets holes. 50's 24" roxy made in west Germany 2788 grams with 4 rivet holes on the right. This is a mean combination!!

Drums are mid 60's Ludwig 20/12 clubdate combos with matching jazzfest in black lacquer.

Whatya got ??

Mike

I guess this is more "driver's seat" than "bird's eye," but be that as it may...

Alright, I've always wanted to get some pictures like this, so this weekend I finally went for it. Here goes.....









K.O. (Kevin) owns the sister cymbal to that 22" Hammerax Liquicy Ride. Last year, I found a seller who had two 22" Liquicy's, but she would only sell them together (????). So I bought them both and had to turn around and sell one, but our own K.O. got it, so it's in a good home.
