Re: Type II Trans stamp

I never saw it online either. I think with some of the primo cymbals they just wait for someone to walk in and buy. The primo cymbals can just walk out of the shop like this one did, so why waste the...

"I don't use no felts, and my cymbals swing free, but I ain't never worn through no cymbal sleeve."

That my hip-hop rhyme for the day. Dig it.

Re: New Stamp Old Ks

You know I remember when..........no I don't remember.

Anyway I was there, but for some reason I actually don't remember the 70's AT ALL. And I used to know why, but I forgot that too.

Re: New Stamp Old Ks

Re: New Stamp Old Ks

O.K. that's good. But I never let my cymbals make their own decisions decisions on how they want to be oriented. In fact I mount them in exactly the opposite of what they would naturally want to be...

Re: New Stamp Old Ks

Now the trick is to get the cymbal to stay in the preferred orientation so the sweet spot is always where you want it. I do this by using a rubber cymbal rest. That way the cymbal can't re-adjust its...

Re: New Stamp Old Ks

There were umbrella profiled cymbals to be found in the type IIIb period. I had one 22" and there was at least one other I have seen. Same thing for a few 18" I've seen. But in any era it seems that...

Re: New Stamp Old Ks

I'm posting this profile shot to illustrate an umbrella profile, since this subject came up. This one is a 22" new stamp. There will be more on this one later as time permits.

Re: Type II Trans stamp

Type II's are the rarest of all 4 types. And that one that you got there is the only one that I've ever seen my nearly 40 of cymbal hunting.

I've found that these type II's tend to be closer in...

Re: New Stamp Old Ks

When it comes to great sounding K's I have almost a photographic memory. Yes that NOS new stamp is the one. But as to the paper label, new stamps never got those anyway. They stopped within the early...

Yeah, I'm talking to you, homie. It's that K. you bought off ebay about 15 years ago. I think you bought it for your son.

Re: Probably been asked before, but.....Ringo's cymbals....

I also saw a close-up photo of Ringo's favorite 18" that cracked. It was along a lathe line that someone tried to repair with drill holes. But as often happens they didn't get the exact end of one...
