If I didn’t have a set of Bosphorus Traditional 15s that I love, these would be on their way to me.

Here are two that I would love to snag, but, well, I just cannot indulge and still maintain adult control over my finances :)

This arrived yesterday. Outstanding quality. It came to $181 after tax (shipping was free) and it took only six days to arrive in Florida from India. This is the third seller I have purchased leather cymbal bags from and I would rank this one as #2 out of 3 for quality, and #1 out of 3 for price. As for quality I have no complaints, just one of the other sellers has an edge on that attribute.

^ That does look like a nice deal. If it’s on the thinner side, say, 2100 g or less, a steal.

I don't know if this is a good deal or not, I'm still learning vintage cymbal values, but this is NOT a Zildjian. It's a Paiste Formula 602 ride as the stamp says. Looks very clean. Solid stamp 65-72 range? Of course, no weight listed. Tempting...

I've found that it's more common for GC to simply get the photos mixed up with another item than to misidentify a used product. If there's a GC near you then maybe you buy this just for fun, and if they send you a Zildjian 70s ride take it to the store and stress that you should also be refunded the shipping price because they advertised the wrong product.

And I can't really zoom in enough but it looks almost like that stamp isn't the same one that's on the ride, so may just be the third image that's wrong.

These are on sale for $125 right now. I have purchased the 24 inch model from this seller, and for $125 the 22" model is a bargain. They are leather and very sturdy. I just pulled the trigger on the smaller one.


EDITED TO INCLUDE THIS:
