my first flat experience was a Meinl Meteor (matador?)...it wasn't a great cymbal but it was great for this one situation.

Anyway...this popped up on Ebay and I grabbed it. Thinking a UFIP connection....

Won't get it til November...

I had no idea Hohner made cymbals. Live and learn!

What makes you say UFIP? I don’t see the tell tale roto cast wrinkles around the bell like you normally see from older UFIPs.

Hope it’s a great one!

That one does not appear to be a Tyrko or Super T

i think it might be too new to be a Tryko...it might just be sheet metal. I thought UFIP because they did so many things under other names...

I hope its not trash...but it seems odd that someone would make a cheap flat ride...even the Paiste Alpha flats were great instruments
