This one has been getting a lot of stand time recently.
22” Agop China (very very thin at about 16xx g). I’ve been putting this little wind chime on there to quicken it up a bit. It’s pure joy.

Here are some shots of my various Zildjians and Sabians, after a fresh polish. Some like natural patina, while others like bright and shiny; to each his own.

... my newest addition: a VERY early "E over trade" stamped 18" 602 medium (1605g), circa 1963 to 1965.
You can see the bell shape is completely different and the hole is only 0.400" instead of the standard 0.500"!

Good find. Is this 18inch 602 Medium discussed somewhere else? Would be interesting to get your impressions or hear its sound. Such a bell 'must' sound good.
