Re: My first 22" A - age?

That's a thin letter 3 dot large stamp. These were mid 50's., so the seller was correct.

Re: 15" Zildjian hihats - Misplaced stamp (?)

Yes I have. I've seen them like just this one, and some that were totally upside down, or even just one component upside down and the rest of it right side up.

Re: Why do people dent your heads ?

Drummers that dent drum heads need to have their own heads dented.

The hulabbalo over this is quite understandable seeing as how an Avedis of this vintage and of this size is just about rare as the Cullinan diamond.

I originally figured that the chances were...

We need a trademark photo more than a sound file. Without proof of that cymbal's vintage, a soundfile means nothing.

#1 priority

When you get a photo, send it to me and I'll upload it.

I've made an attempt via personal messaging to gain confirmation of his claim with a photo of the trademark, but so far no reply. Inquiring minds still want to know.

You have one?

Another one? Another 22" pre-trans? Just what exactly is it that are you referring to here?

Re: Ridding cymbals of leprosy spots

Yes. Most cymbal makers are lacquering these days. It all started with Paiste. Keeps your cymbal nice and shiny and also deadens the sound to a certain extent.

Re: Ridding cymbals of leprosy spots

That's a lacquered cymbal which means that this will be a project. You'll have to remove all that lacquer first and then then use a cymbal cleaner.

Re: What is this?

That would be about right for a 602 medium-ride. But I'm going to go with Giant Beat, since none of the Paiste people here seem to know anything.

Re: Anyone here ever see a 22" pre-trans?

Almost but not quite. About '51 actually.

Only the type I trans is in the 1940's and that's late '40s. And I bet most people wouldn't recognize one if that had it in hand. The pre-trans however is...

Most probably have not. But a few may have seen this one on Cymbalholic.

Re: What's going on here?

A single digit error, then yes that could be a typo. But two digits....not buying that.

And his prices are really not in the ballpark ever. They're somewhere in the bleachers.
