Ah yes - I didn't see that. I'd then say it's relatively high tension that keeps it all in check.
I thought an online version including videos and sound files would be something people would like. The Paiste portal is still in process but that gives an example of a useful organization with things like models and when they were made.

Great resource.I thought an online version including videos and sound files would be something people would like. The Paiste portal is still in process but that gives an example of a useful organization with things like models and when they were made. You don't approve?

Use of the term "1954 stamp" is of course out of date. Even Drumaholic finally came around in March 2019. @ChicagoDave was an imporant early contributor to demonstrating that the "1954 stamp" is what we call the 1960s short stamp. The recent discussion is here
I need to go through the video a few more times to see what the hammering details suggest, and I was hoping for a decent image of the top of the bell to see the lathing on that. So far I haven't found enough.
Context for that weight from my data:
The 3 lightest 22" A Zildjian cymbals in my database are the Swish model at 1666g (L1), 1760g (T4), 1818g (70). Next comes a few regular shape cymbals: 1850g (T), 1875g (60tall), 1908g (T2).
And context for that weight from the reconstructed weight class categories shows it is an Ex Thin which are now documented right back to the 1930s.
