Have bought 90% of my rides from the US! Mostly have used cymbalsonly (Tony) and Hazelshould (Gerry) both of whom ship worldwide. Have used a forwarding service in Oregon for a couple of other smaller shops.OP is in Australia (correct?) and If we (in the US) heard it once we heard it a thousand times.
It appears the market/ what is available/ is somewhat Dictateted by Location So... Must search in Australia;
And I'm sure there is something on that Island : )
I remember reading (from Australians) US sellers willing to ship are thin to none (for whatever reasons.
Still the cymbal will appear /and be available. for you OP
As long as they don't mind shipping to Portland Oregon ☺️So, it must be private/ sellers of used on ebay; where you near can always find a 20" K Custom Dry. They are lowest price (used) on the K totem pole and have been for ages. Can get some real ugly sounding ones; altho I know of 1 (in real life) that sounded unbelievable. I had one that was ugly as a mud fence -sounding.
So it's the private sellers that maybe are reticent to send overseas.
Missed seeing the following one for sale - just the sort of sound I want: bright and very dry yet has a lovely pronounced glow in the decay. Any suggestions please for other models to check?
Thanks. That one from Hazel is good, but I love the one I missed out on so much more - the attack is so short and percussive in its video demo.Find many great new & used options and get the best deals for VIDEO! 15 YEAR AGED DRY ZILDJIAN K CUSTOM 20" DRY Ride 3049 Gs TIGHT CONTROL EX at the best online prices at eBay!

Haha! Just call me mother then - I've been told I have very acute hearing. Maybe a recording factor but I hear a difference between the two demos and for me the attack of the one in the OP, (the first one above), sounds much more exciting and spectacular.short and percussive is a GIVEN with every one of them..
that's a difference only a Mother would know.. ; )
