Re: Need help dating K Istanbul cymbals

Re: Need help dating K Istanbul cymbals

Jmoll, Thanks so much. I don't remember where or when I bought the ride cymbal, but I have had it since the late 1970's. I had switched from playing rock and country to "society" combo music and...

Re: What's this antique pedal?
