19" 50s small stamp with a fighting weight of 1720gr. I'm sure Zenstat will chime in on the exact stamp. :) 5" bell, fairly high pitched and sticky but with a nice complex wash. Nice LSR/crash with some perdy hammering and factory buff finish. Rivet holes look factory but no idea on the grommet's originality. Not gonna take it off regardless cuz mojo and stuff.

Looks like an SSB with the complete top but it's hard to be sure because the whole stamp pressing is so weak. You need to measure the width of the Zildjian Co to be sure


And the Trixon info


since that was written I've found plenty more. I've got one which is a 1500g 18" L2 (to use my shorthand).

I made some trades and got a 20" AAX stadium ride - I've never seen these before, but it's nice. A bit like the AAX raw bell dry ride; with the unlathed bell. Has a good ping and bell. Nice addition to my arsenal (22" vintage zildjian, 21" sweet, 20" K PADLR)

I just bought a 16" Zildjian K Custom Session Crash

and a 14" K Custom Dark Crash.

I played these a while back. I think that they should fit well with my 18" K Custom Session, 17" Dark, and 15" Fast Crashes.

(My fingers are crossed.)

Latest purchase is a complete set of Zildjian L80 Low Volumes - 14" hats, 20" ride, 16 and 18" crashes.

I guess there's probably some people that don't even consider these "real" cymbals, and to be honest, I'm not crazy about their overall tone. But they do accomplish that goal of being low volume, which combined with some mesh heads, allows me to play late into the night at home, something I can't otherwise do.

Sometimes life's about living with compromise. This is one such time.

Same here, I just ordered the smaller pack. I already had the L80 13'' hi-hat but buying separate ride and crash/ride was only 15 euros cheaper, so... I can always sell one of the hi-hats or use it somewhere. I play regular big loud drums at my drum school which have 4 different kits and to be honest I don't think I'm missing that much at home. I'll report back when I will be able to play all the cymbals.

View attachment 523303 13” Bosphorus Antique hats. Used them last night night for the first time. With new gear, I try to play it at least a month in different settings before I come to any conclusions.
I love Bosphorus - am looking at these as well. Please give follow up review when the time comes!

two flats for Fall...

a 1974g 21" Turk, nice and dry with some dragons breath in the crash





a wobbly 3054g 24" Soultone Latin. My second Soultone purchase ever and WOW, what a pleasant surpise, all kinds of nice sounds eminating from this. As good or better than anything from the big boys for less than half the price.
