Re: New Old Avedis

+1.

I'm still trying to come up with a simple set of objective tests which can distinguish the late 50s Small Stamp from the mid 50s Large Stamp Type 3 (the one without the 3 dots in a triangle)....

Re: 60s Supraphonic Shootout!

Nice idea. I'd like to pitch for the idea that you should not reveal which drum is which (at first) and get people to vote. Every once in a while somebody does a test like this where listeners are...

Re: Rogers COB DynaSonic

Unless you have a time machine, a drum (or a cymbal -- more my specialty) has to be manufactured, await shipping, get shipped to the retailer, possibly sit on the shelf at the retailer, then get sold...

Re: New here with an Old K Cie - help with stamp ID, pls?

And while we are talking about these, one of my efforts has been to show the continuity of the Arabic form across the early trademarks. This is more of me showing my colors as a "lumper".

Re: Billy Cobham

Meazzi Hollywood did make a pedal tuned floor tom so that is a possibility as well.

Re: Zildjian 50s and 60s ? Cymbals

It is a great help, thank you. I've just put yours into my spreadsheet and I see I've got 3 others (60s era, 20" with MEDIUM ink and a weight) which are 1976g, 2150g and 2090g. There are also 3 which...

Re: Zildjian 50s and 60s ? Cymbals

Just noticed that your 20" also has the word MEDIUM in the font with the sloping out M. That's another sign of early 60s for that particular that MEDIUM ink stamp, although that ink did last until at...

Re: Zildjian 50s and 60s ? Cymbals

Re: Rogers Swivo swan leg stands and cymbals for newer Zildjian Ks

I'm curious about that 16" late 50s cymbal. In the picture from the top it looks like it has a flange (which would make it a flange model) yet in profile there isn't a flange showing. Is the flange...

Re: Another pawn shop score!

Yes it's the 1.5" 60s stamp.



You can see the telltale features on it which show it is the tall version of the 60s stamp.
