Re: Initial Stamped K

Not Loise Bellson then.

Then the "B" most likely stands for band, and the "L" stands for who knows what.

Re: Initial Stamped K

Right, that would go a long way to finding an answer or at least eliminating some possibilities. If it's a heavy then I think its pretty obvious that we can rule out Louise Belson.

And mind you: The guy who brought it up can't tell us where this info...

Re: Mystery Cymbal, help needed.

It means construction in Italian.

Re: Mystery Cymbal, help needed.

I just added thie one to the hundreds of other "unknowns" in my archive.

I'd be very interested to hear the sound of that cymbal if you get a chance to do it.

Re: gentle bell-bow transition vs. abrupt transition

No it's still in this universe. Look, didn't I just get done telling all of you exactly where you could find it? And even after I gave you the roadmap you're still incapabable of finding on your own?...

Re: What a great name for a cymbal manufacterer

Re: 22" Zildjian K Istanbul Old Stamp (could be interested on a 20" too)

Why would they?

Anyone who has one of these would probably sell one of their kidneys first.
