Hollow Logo would be late 70s-early 80s. I had a couple of medium thin crashes from that era (same exact cymbal as the Crash/Ride). I liked that era of Zildjians. It was a simple time.
Pics and sound file or it didn't happen.I have one I bought new in-person in-store in 1976.
(6) factory rivet.
Solid (not hollow) ink. All ink still present (top and bottom) 1553g
for dfoers 4000$ ; )
Is more Ride, you crash...than crash, you ride.
I'm not sure it was such a "simple time". The closer I look the more rich and complicated it gets in terms of models for the 1970s. I'm still trying to figure it all out.Hollow Logo would be late 70s-early 80s. I had a couple of medium thin crashes from that era (same exact cymbal as the Crash/Ride).

You'll need to hear it in order to tell that.My Sabian 20" crash/ride is a little too much paired with my 60's 20" 602. Hopefully this will fit better?

I bought my Zildjian A crash "hollow logo" brand new out of Banko's Music store (Ansonia, CT). It was around 1976-1978. It was in the store on the rack and I needed my first real good sounding crash cymbal. It was probably around the same time I bought my new Pearl Export (WMP?) from Banko's as well in 76/77. Those were my last "new purchases" of drum gear until the early 90's.another truth of the matter in those olden days I never saw a new hollow ink Zildjian in a store. Maybe it was a territorial thing but never saw one. I started going to music stores that I can remember in 74-75
I have about 14 of them and at I one time I was "like you" I went thru every 18 on the planet. But I came out from under that. I went thru that quest. the true easy answer is number 1. Old K. Every one is a Ride. then you go off into 18" rides from everyone and you get slower and slower until you're stuck in clay up to your hips. But you learn to come out of it/My search for an 18 that rides wonderfully is still fruitless.
