Great condition with one non-factory rivet hole, it’s probably between 1750 and 1800 grams (my scale isn’t all that accurate). No cracks or flea bites or key-holing. Looking for $270 plus split shipping from the northeast.

Thanks. Awesome cymbal. Im wondering what normal hickory sticks sound like in it. Probably a tad softer stick sound.

Very nice cymbal

Not trying to be a jeark but you might want to make another exactly as you did but with a hickory stick.

Its an awesome video and cymbal!

But I think very few drummers use oak.

It maybe just leave it as is.

Its a good one. Mel would use it!

That’s good advice! I’ll work on it when I get another sunny day.
I do like the cymbal a lot- I’m from Western NY so I like the connection to Buffalo! But I’m not using it so much as my 20” signature and I’m dying to try out those K sweet rides.

Writing you from nearby Ithaca. Where are you?

From what I can tell, a nice cymbal. Wish the video was a little less noisy. (A boomy car stereo passing by?) Any chance you can post a video with you playing the hickory stick that doesn't have so much background noise? Would also welcome a more precise reading from your scale. Might be interested, but need more info.

Up in Burlington. I’ll work on a video with less noise, but don’t have a more precise scale unfortunately.
