Re: Humble Collection of Old A, Italian, and misc.

Re: Zildjian 30" ride cymbal

I bought that one. I paid $600 for it, and about 6 months later I sold it on Ebay for $1100.

Re: Interesting way to try to stop a crack

Oh, you too, eh?

You 2 guys should team up and then take your show out on the road.

By the way the shipping just on that partial bottle is $26.36 for an item valued at only $1.31.
