I hope he bridges the gap between old k and new cymbal. I guess K is a Zildjian term, Paul was Zildjian… whatever Paul decides to call his new creations in the vein of old Ks. I hope his expertise bridges the gap Zildjian never could meet without hand hammered cymbals.Good, I hope he does well after how the new zildjian management had treated him. They made a huge mistake letting him go imo...
He already did with the K Istanbul-inspired Zil prototypes from 2015.I hope he bridges the gap between old k and new cymbal. I guess K is a Zildjian term, Paul was Zildjian… whatever Paul decides to call his new creations in the vein of old Ks. I hope his expertise bridges the gap Zildjian never could meet without hand hammered cymbals.
If anyone had the know how to do it, it would be him
@Cymbalpaul. Paul you’ve got a lot of fans here. Care to chime in at all?Where does he get his blanks from? Zildjian? Sabian?
Or a Turkish supplier?
It is a hand stamp (ink), not pressed into the metal.

I found a stamp on mine. It’s partial and very faint but it's there
It’s this one that I received today from the Memphis drum shopWas yours a custom/direct order or via Maxwell?
The prices seem about the same as high end zildjians or agops.I got to try out a few of the cymbals that Steve Maxwell tool to the Chicago Drum Show . I spent about 30 minutes with these cymbals . I was quite happy with what I heard , no dogs in the bunch and some were really special . The majority were good cymbals and the prices were pretty dear to say the least . I understand the entire handmade boutique thing so the prices may be justified, just not for me .
It took me a couple of days to watch this but what a great interview and what a great guy (this is coming from a diehard Paiste guy), I learned so much!Timothy Roberts recently posted a 2.5 hour interview with Paul on his YouTube channel…
The 26 sounds great!There are still a few of his cymbals on Memphis drum shop site. Unfortunately my accountant said no more cymbals this year but they sound amazing! There’s a 26”!!!
Going to save up for 2023
