Default Re: Fake vintage cymbals???

I can't see how any Ajaha, except the really early( 1920's-30's) ones, would resemble a K close enough, to be used as a blank for a K. The hammering and lathing are way more refined and precisely executed on Ajahas, not to mention that Ajahas, in their own right can be fine enough cymbals, as to warrant serious attention.Anyway, it would be a crime against the memory of Signore Ajaha, despite the potential monetary gain. No, drummer would do that, would they?------ I've had a fair number of cymbals pass through my hands----multiples of all kinds and my favourite 20" ride,is still an Italian made Ajaha..
