An amazing sounding cymbal, just a little too light for my applications. When I bought it, the seller said it was between 1900-2100g, which makes this a very light specimen. It has two rivets, spaced close together.

I don’t currently have the means to weigh this, but I can take a video.

I’d like to trade this for a heavier 22” 30th, but will listen to other Agops of a similar vibe.
24” 30th would be awesome. I’ll also trade this for the right snare, or sell outright, just throw me a reasonable offer.

Oh man, I only wish I had the cymbal you are looking seeking. What are you looking for in a snare?

Monroe Badge Ludwig, 80’s Tama, a nice Jazz Fest. I’m gonna be picky when it comes to snares, since I’ve been consolidating.

Beautiful cymbal you have there! I remember seeing/hearing one on Reverb like 6 months ago that sounded exactly like your. Caught my attention. Think it was located in California. Then a similar turned up in the UK and...

Turned out to be an early 22” 30th at 2016 grams, nice umbrella shape. Never letting go of it.

But I agree, at this weight they can wash/crash out too easy.

Thanks!

You have this one going pretty hard to wash out, it’s the volume ceiling that’s the issue. My other cymbals just overpower it in my context.
If I was playing anything not really loud, I’d keep it. I just hate to see stuff sit, and this will if I keep it. Interestingly enough, it blends really nicely with my Paiste Trad set
