Re: Please ID this wrap color

I have seen old MIJ's like that...it could certainly be original....in which case it is surely something faded. Cool looking hue, although I can understand where if you expected "chocolate"...you...

Re: Late 70's Zildjian A 16" Crash

That's like a 1500g 16" cymbal, if your weight is accurate. You may wanna take it to a UPS or post office and get a very accurate weight if you plan on selling....

That's pretty heavy.......

Re: Another Ajaha

I have a pair of 22's which are also like this. One shows heavier hammering, the other heavier lathing. They are both great rides, really. They do sound different, although their weights are w.i...

Re: Are these hi-hats 60s vintage?

I understand, and those are some nice weights you have there...all I am saying is, one cannot generalize the weights to an era.

i.e.:

"all Trans-stamps are between 6-700g's"...

"all 60's...

That's Gerry Porter you bought from. He's a real straight-up fella, he wouldn't con anyone.

Re: How can I identify a crash/ride?

Wasn't it Tony Williams who once, upon being asked if his (whatever) cymbal was a crash or a ride, replied :

"a cymbal...is a cymbal"

???

I think so.

Not being a wiseass, here. You want...

Re: Zanchi Cymbal

To my knowledge, Zanki was the first company to employ Rotocasting; and this was developed by Fiorello using the UFIP facilities.

The story goes that...

Re: Zanchi Cymbal

I like these cymbals, but honestly one cannot suggest they are Avedis-like. Yes they are B20 and yes they are handmade. They tend to be light (the Vibras, which are from the '50's and '60's, BTW)...

Re: Sling cymbal

There are two versions...one being what was described by id4f...just brass-alloy beginner cymbals which were probably sold as the stock cymbals with kits in the '70's or '80's.

Re: 14" Avedis Zildjian Hi Hat cymbals

Mmm...$90 total is about what they should go for given the dent/ding. You generally don't want an edge ding on a set of 'hats.

Keep in mind, these are pretty light 'hats. Would be good Jazz hats...

Re: Cleaning an 18" Zildjain A

Groove Juice is pretty good...but the thing is, it's gonna do a complete strip-job....patina and all. The advantage of the Wright's is, you can remove in layers, so get to a nice point in-between...

Re: Glue vs. Tape

I don't particularly believe that a tape job would have any discernible effect on the tone of the shell, really.

With that said....I always use glue, and then high-bond tape the overlap. Because...

Re: Cleaning an 18" Zildjain A

Yup...that's good stuff. Be sure you mix it with water into a soupy paste first (if it is the powder you buy).

Also...Wright's Copper Cream will do the trick.

With either you may need 2...

Re: no name ride

If it looks sorta Vintage A-esque, it could well be an old Italian cymbal from the UFIP factory. They made TONS of stencils which were only stamped in INK, so would have worn off long ago.

Re: Vintage Meinl

Gilnar has it right (about the cymbal, not the gongs Mind Blowi).

It's an NS12 nickelbronze alloy one from the 60's. If it weren't warped, it might be pretty half-decent. But, oomph...ain't no...

Re: sizzle cymbal

That large a sizzle ?

I have seen 'Jangle" cymbals from the 30's and such...those had massive things attached to 'em...but have never seen something of that proportion on a 60's cymbal...

Re: Need some advice on dents in cymbals

I wouldn't be concerned w/ it becoming a crack.

Plus, if it is small (am talking small, like 1/4" or so), it won't effect sound or performance at all and it seems like a decent deal.

You just...

Re: choosing white marine pearls

That's a brilliant suggestion ! Clapping Happy2

The problem with the Drummaker wraps, as I noted above, is that I am not sure they do that on the Luddy-style WMP pattern.
