First, I'm not a Zildjian guy, although I've owned and played them over the years, and I still have a set of 12-3/4" Turkish Constantinople hihats.
I've owned a few Turkish K cymbals, but decided to sell them all off because I just wasn't playing them. (All but one had crack issues, but they still were worthy of getting played. Just not by me.)
So I saw this one here today, it's my birthday, and for $76 shipped it'll be worth checking out!
If I like the sound I'll keep it.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this one!

I didn't know where to post this so I thought this was the best spot.

Actually a decent deal on a 19" Armand.

But check out the description; the previous owner purposefully "Filed that down so the rivets sat in his desired location while on a cymbal stand."

First for me, I've never seen that before.

...not how I would do it, but the first intentional keyhole I think I've ever seen.

Or a ploy to fool us all?

I’ve heard of it being done on purpose before, BUT the usual place I see that story is a seller vainly trying to make a flaw into a special bonus feature.

I think this is a terrific price (I have an almost identical one already, and it has some slight bell cracks, and I wish they had cracked wide open already (they are drilled out and not spreading so far actually) so I could talk the mrs into this one, but alas . . .) :

^ Fantastic. Nothing better for jazz, blues, acoustic Americana, ...

I have a Trans Stamp at that weight, otherwise I'd have hit BIN immediately.

Under $200 for a 20" K
Normally, many cymbals are sold for 40% off MSRP/List price. This cymbal would then be $209.40.
So $195 is a good deal, although discounted just a little more than it should be.
Now, having said that, it's common to NOT get 40% off MSRP from many companies including Zildjian. Sometimes more like 30-35% off MSRP.
