Almost $1000! No way man.
It's about 10% cheaper compared to new 24" Funch cymbals. So it's not a great deal if you only stare at the price. BUT if you consider how fast his cymbals sell out at the monthly sale event, this might be great deal for someone who hasn't been able to get one from his sales.

I don't know how much or little american cymbalsmiths charge for 24" handmade rides, but you also need to take into consideration that US dollar has been dropping in value in the last year. It's now about 10% weaker compared to year ago. So this is also showing the disadvantage americans have at the moment buying european goods.

If you're living in Europe and are after 24" Funch, this is in fact a tempting deal.
Luckily this way too thin for my taste, whew. If it was heavier I would grab it.

I haven’t checked to see how much one of these would go for brand new, but this seems like a pretty solid deal on a cymbal that will get you lots of comments — and ya know, probably sound good, too:

Murat Diril 14" Renaissance hats. $220 new, including shipping from Korea, but, from the seller's feedback, it looks like they accept lower offers.
