Just bought it.Oh, I just listened to three new Take Five replicas that are currently available. First two...hmm, getting there, but not quite. Third one, ohhhh! It's not exact, but it's by FAR the closest I've found. I may have to snag it. Thanks for the suggestion!
Your video reminded me of one of my cymbals. The video below is mine (I bought it new from Memphis Drum Shop). Listen at the :37 mark. To my ear, it's a bit lower pitched but similar qualities. Looks like MDS has 3 of these in stock now (I think it's an exclusive to them).Hi,
I'm very nearly almost content and finished with ride cymbals (famous last words). There's one sound left that I'm on the hunt for, and the first cymbal in this video has it:
Evidently it's an old 20" A Hollow Block Stamp. I don't need quite that much sizzle, so it may or may not be a situation that calls for rivets, but in terms of overall tone / pitch / sound signature, what's out there on the new market that could be close? I found a couple vintage examples on Reverb in decent shape that might work, but I'm a weirdo and prefer to waste money on brand new gear. I tried listening to a few modern As (not all of them yet) and haven't stumbled onto anything close enough so far. I found a K Con that is almost there, but the wash on it was way too much.
What a deal! The Zildjian inspection gloves really sell it.Hey @tbird8450, I solved your problem!
In celebration of what would have been Armand Zildjian's 100th birthday, Zildjian is releasing a limited number of Vintage A cymbals, hand-selected from Armand's personal collection for release globally. These one-of-a-kind instruments represent Armand's vast contributions to the development of...www.chicagomusicexchange.com
