Re: Zildjian Clone? Zildjian K? What is this?

I haven't yet done any specific analysis of the meager data I've got for those very old ones, but in general Italian cymbals don't get the same price premium that K Zildjian Istanbul cymbals do. One...

Re: Zildjian Clone? Zildjian K? What is this?

I've reviewed drum catalogs from 1930 onwards and compiled an overview. The choice of 1930 was because this review started out with a focus on Avedis Zildjian history (and Avedis Zildjian value lines...

Z.Fengjian & Cie. From my photo reference collection. Believed to be yet another Italian Ersatz K as we discussed recently in another thread:

Re: PowerSonic by UFIP Cymbals

Just following on from the mystery cymbal discussion

I can see the lathing rings on those. And if you measure the diameter accurately they...

Re: Just Ordered Mystery Cymbals...any Guesses?

Very unlikely story. Once again, the diameter (undersized 20") is the standard for cymbals from Italy. There isn't anything unusual to explain! A 22" ride which is cut down (and not also reshaped)...

Re: Just Ordered Mystery Cymbals...any Guesses?

I've had one CB-700 piece to analyze and the results say Brass (CuZn36). That one was Tosco made and this fits with other information that Tosco made most if not all of the CB-700 cymbals. Tosco...

Re: 1960s Zildjian New Beat Top - Thin/Dark

My favorite home made pairing is two 60s trademarked A Zildjian cymbals which are 732g over 1120g. That's at the lighter end of the New Beat range, but I like them. I sold two pairs of heavier ones...

Sorry about the brevity of my answer. I was having a strange network problem which has kept me from getting to VDF for many days. I've finally narrowed it down to the Apple Airport. I switched back...

Re: 1950s Zildjian crash or ride or crash/ride.

At that weight and diameter and production era (late 50s) the likely models are Bounce, Medium Ride (which usually have model ink saying Medium), or maybe Bop or Dance. Probably not a Ping at that...

Re: EAK or IAK?

The top is an IAK (based on the lathing style) and the bottom is from the Z Series. These were released in 1987 in 13" diameter, and the 14" diameter in 1988. I wasn't sure when I wrote up my page

As Drumaholic pointed out there are sound files but they are very easy to miss. Which is how I missed them the first time. Some of the Reverb ads do say listen to the audio link below (a hint) but...

The answer is on the main page. They have decamped to Reverb and the categories on the left are in the process of being de-implemented.

Re: Ludwig blue/olive non serial # badge question.

Aren't those two badges from approx the same serial number range? If so, what you have demonstrated is variation rather than chronology. Once you have 25 or so of each color and document that the...

Re: Ludwig blue/olive non serial # badge question.

So this is an example of a snare which gives us no reliable evidence that it really is 1976. No big deal in terms of buying, selling, and playing drums. Big difference in terms of looking for 1976...

Fake or RCI is not the question. It is about the exact year 1976. Same as the seller Drumwacker dealt with. Where does 1976 come from?

Yes the darker/lighter Olive is lighting as far as I can tell because I've got photos which show a variety of shades. That doesn't mean somebody might not be able to see a systematic difference in...
