I'd have to drive about an 2 hours to pick this up. It's a 16 inch from the 60's for under $100 bucks.
I see the black label, and looks to be a vintage Giant Beat?
Am I correct? If not, what else could it be?? The seller doesn't know
I am color blind. It may be red?

I don't think it is.
Check out Terry's video the originals had the white label to the left and the engraved stamp on the right. The re issue says Giant Beat on the top

Any idea what model that can be? Like I mentioned, I'm color blind, is the label red.
I'm baffled on this one?

I'll post the pic w/out the link to make it easier.
Whatever it is, it appears to be in excellent shape

Depending on traffic it could be.
If I went during the weekend (off peak) I could get there, and back in 2 1/2.
Worth it?
I don't know much about that line.
What years where they made? Rare?
Good price?
Thanks!

I'm not 100% sure exactly what it is, maybe get a couple more pics, an engraved stamp on the face, a serial number? Picture of the backside? There's a few paiste wizards around here I'm sure will chime in.

I'll try and get a couple more. I've just never seen the Paiste stamp like this, but nothing else written on it.
Hopefully someone can ID it before I have the guy think it might be looking into.
The price he's asking is worth the drive imo.
I just put up the thread, so hopefully by the end of the day someone will be able to ID it?

That's pretty hard to tell. I don't see it from that pic. The one you posted almost looks like it was a brilliant that rusted (I know it wasn't)
I'll try and get more info from the seller.
That being said, even if they are the same model?? The condition is so bad on the one you happened to find, I think $95 bucks may be worth it.
Weren't they called Paiste/Ludwig Standards back then?
I've never seen one in good condition until I saw this one. I can't even find a good example online.

I'm trying to find out. I believe it's late 60's. I know someone who will get rid of it. If it's of any value, I'd be getting it cheap.
They don't know much about drums/cymbals, so he couldn't really help me out on the ?'s

I think that's the Ludwig Standard. From what I gathered anyway
