Those might just be speed holes ...
But I'm slow; I don't like the sound of either of them. Especially for that money .

Seriously though, did they ever put an extra hole in the cup in the factory?

Those radial holes are the physical proof of actual humans walking around with the brain capacity of chimpanzees (and with power tools). That's so ridiculous.

With the 2nd cymbal there- I have found that a highly polished old cymbal- if you then stop polishing it and just use it, handle it, play it- it can tarnish back up pretty quickly- it has no protective coating. Especially if you like the brighter sounding Ks it might not be the end of the world that is was polished. Unlike the first cymbal there- the polished K can at least be allowed to re-patina.

There should only be ONE hole in a cymbal........the one in the middle of the cup, period!
