Got a ride cymbal that I have been jonesing for since the late 80’s . A 20” Paiste Signature Mellow ride . This is the ride cymbal that started my long time fascination with Paiste .
I found a great deal on a brand new model on Reverb with free shipping .

I had one of those way back when the Ludwig was a new kit (lower left cymbal)...



EXCELLENT cymbal!
Congrats on your latest grab, NCnut.
I hope you get to enjoy yours for many years to come. =)

Picked up a 22" Lyric that's not an official size of the series (i.e. the 21 and 23). After a sketchy experience delving outside with a 19" AA Raw Ride (which to my eyes and hands was a 20" that was simply cut down) I was hesitant, but this sounded too good to pass up. Bosphorus didn't cut any corners with this one.

Just got these in. I commissioned a few plates from Nickymoon cymbals
2 20” rides

Short video of them (YouTube link)

Havent had much opportunity to play them yet (apartment life) but have a few rehearsals this week with gigs through the month. Excited to get em out in the wild!

18” Blue Label Medium
Paiste 602
Wow - right up your alley. Super nice.

Fairly dry?

It seems every Blue Label I’ve ever had has surprised me with its dryness. Even now, when I look at that 18” Medium, I hear in my head a clean, very wet sound, but it’s probably a lot drier than I imagine.

Just bought a pair of 15” Bosporus traditional hats on Amazon for $200. We’ll see what I got when they arrive on Thursday.
should could maybe have been (from what I've read at the amazon thread)..a Dark, Crisp or Bright designation in the code; Doesn't matter; they're all good ; )

They are the Bright weight, but I just have no idea what the actual weight is. I recently bought some Dark weight Turk hats on Amazon, but when they arrived they were pretty heavy.

Just bought a Holy Grail Turkish 22" from my local guy at Round Sound Cymbals in Oakland. He also installed rivets for me.
I love these cymbals. Every time I go to his shop, I try out several cymbals, but always walk away with a Cymbal and Gong.
Gonna try it out with my combo this weekend.

I’ve always wanted to check out Round Sound. Bet it’s a cool shop.
