Re: Post your Pre-trans Stamp Avedis Zildjians

I pretty much have that same splash but it’s branded as a Zilco. 250g. I bought it with two cymbals from the 1920s so I assume the Zilco is an early vintage from the 1930s. Great sounding cymbal...

Re: Post your Pre-trans Stamp Avedis Zildjians

+1 with Steve on the 5ish different stamps. The point where I diverge from some is that I'm certain that those stamps either co-existed together or at least co-mingled and overlapped to a large...

Re: Old World Sabian A & F

Come on dude. I’m having a hard time believing you’re a 90yo jazz drummer. That’s poser talk with a capital Soul Patch.

AND THIS IS THE VINTAGE CYMBAL SECTION.

Re: Cymbalholic Site Closing down

I'm sure you cymbalholic devotees know the correct answer to the not THAT uncommon criticism of the site which is:

"Yeah, we're certainly been guilty of that . . . and feel bad . . . but we...

Re: Cymbalholic Site Closing down

Are you guys even reading you own posts?

A few years back I stumbled onto the cymbamholic site to be greeted by the register page. Asking a couple of friends / pro drummers if I should bother, I...

Wow. Most of this conversation is pointless. Is this what Cymbalholic was like? No thanks.

Re: One Drummer's Pies from the 20s / 30s

And the holder. It sports the classic convex / concave surfaces that you'd expect to hold the cymbals snug. Large black surface is a now rather hard and slightly cracked rubber ring. The smooth...

One Drummer's Pies from the 20s / 30s

I recently bought three cymbals on the Bay that merit sharing for both their collector and academic value.

Two of the cymbals are pre 1929 while the last (the Zilco) likely dates to the mid 30s. ...

I believe the seller has the disease called “ItsworthmoreifIownitthanifyoudoitis”.

Re: 14 and 6/8ths of an inch Cymbal???

The first scan here is from that same 1928 Premier Catalog and is the first time they showed that much concern for the exact sizes. My educated guess is that people where suddenly concerned because...

Re: 14 and 6/8ths of an inch Cymbal???

Additionally, I had always assumed that a factor involved in the odd sizes (for HHs at least) could have something to do with the fact that they were usually sold as singles rather than pairs. So a...

Re: 14 and 6/8ths of an inch Cymbal???

Well, that surprised even me. Of the 15 vintage Zildjians I own, only 2 were what I would consider on the number. The other 13 were off, ranging from 1/16 to 1/4 inch.

I don't see why a Super Zyn...

Re: 14 and 6/8ths of an inch Cymbal???

Not only did it happen more often than you think, it used to be standard practice with K Zildjian and common practice with A Zildjian till maybe as late as the mid 1960s.

Just for giggles I'll...

Re: Is this a 1930s custom made A Zildjian?

Couldn’t recall his name so I stuck the et al in. No disrespect meant.

I have seen an identical stamp whose owner stated the original owner had purchased the cymbal new in 1941. But I went with...

Re: Is this a 1930s custom made A Zildjian?

Thanks for the extra info. Ive read a little about the second stamps on Steve’s and Rob’s excellent webpages et al. But still, this is my first experience with an A Zildjian this old. I was actually...

Re: Is this a 1930s custom made A Zildjian?

Yep. But my big blind spot on this question is that I have no idea if A Zildjian did custom stuff. I’m kind of wondering if there are lots of other examples out there.

Is this a 1930s custom made A Zildjian?

I recently purchased a pre-WWII 13.75 inch A Zildjian cymbal that was described as "very light". I got it intending to pair it with another as a set of hi hats. That ain't gonna happen as it only...

Re: vintage Avedis 14" cymbals

Hey Zenstat. Good to hear from you. (See below) - Catalog is actually dated on the front 1963-64. I'll have to dig to see where I got the file from.

Re: vintage Avedis 14" cymbals

This may be a major monkey wrench but there was a time when a "set" of hi hats was to a fair degree in the eye of the beholder. The cropped jpg below is from the 1963-64 Zildjian catalog that can be...

Re: Dating a Zildjian K

It's a bit more fluid than that. People outside still referred to it as Constantinople for a long time and Turkey began to pressure outside nations to call it Istanbul late in the decade. I'm...
