I found an 18" K ride that sounded really nice as a light ride / crash yesterday. The guy really will not come down from $250.00 and I was thinking more of $200.00 is a fair price.

Any comments about this price?


Thanks,

Two things: The pre-aged K series is no longer available new. They are getting harder to find. I've been keeping my eyes open for a 20" or 22". And second...does the 18" sound like it's worth $50 more than you want to pay?

I gave 135 for my 20" KCPADLR
Like new - one owner
The 18 version is not a cymbal I'd spend over 120 on.
Just my opinion.

I've been on a 18" crash/ ride jag lately and have been tracking them on E-bay and other sources.
That seems a bit high to me too. The fact that it's pre-aged and now discontinued may be a factor,
But that's Not what I'd spend my $250 on.

I love my 18" K PALR I got it on ebay about 3 years ago for $135 I believe. I've seen two maybe three on ebay since none have topped $200 that I remember. That being said, I like mine enough that I don't think I'd take $250 for it :wink:

Thanks for the help guys. I think I am going to pass on the K and try to find a 2nd 18" crash of doom. One day I will pick up an 18 K thin crash to round out my 18's.

Years ago Steve's Music in Toronto was blowing some out at $99.00 Canadian.Should have grabbed one then as I really like them.You see quite a few 20s on Ebay but very few 22's and 18"s - to my ear the 18's and the 22's were the best sizes of these cymbals made.I have heard few 20's that I liked.
