Just put in my 'don't let em go for too cheap' bid. Probably about the same odds as winning the lotto but it costs less (unless you win). Thought that 22 would be more my speed but I liked that 20 better.

EAK 20" ride going off on Ebay in the next 20 minutes. Very light at 2020 gms. Probably a Jazz ride but the inking is gone. Right now around $195 delivered and a good deal imo. I'd be disappointed if this doesn't reach $225 for such a light example.
Stealth EAK (no K in title), but it still made $238.57 so you don't need to be disappointed. At that weight it could be a Jazz Ride or Crash Ride or Dark Crash. Paul Francis can tell the difference just by looking at them but I'm not up to that level. I still have to measure things.

An extremely smoooth and warm sounding era for Zildjian hats especially in the 1100 range, simply sublime. Judging from the wear pattern on the outside edge I would say always a hat.
Spreading the AZ lv !

Careful on the Impression Hats ^^. I've have sent questions to the seller and bid all without response. These were floating around on ebay a while ago as well. I question whether the seller still has them.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Used-Paiste-2002-20-Crash-Cymbal-with-small-crack/143105230429?hash=item2151bc865d:g:5zoAAOSwX3ZcTMRE&LH_ItemCondition=4

A new definition of "small crack" for all potential cymbal buyers....on a 20" Paiste 2oo2 ride. Wouldn't want to catch my hand on that one. Very fresh...lol.

I didn't even notice the seller's comment, which is incredible in its tonal analysis. Who knew cracks could be so beneficial?

Used Paiste 2002 20" Crash Cymbal with small crack. The crack is about one inch by one inch, which gives it a little bit of a sizzle, but doesn't take away from the fullness or resonance of the cymbal.....starting bid $95.
