This is a recent purchase. 15" Zilco 664 grams. It's an older one: 1940s-50s, as far as I understand. Maybe the most flexible cymbal that I've owned. A true splash with that "breaking glass" sound, but with more trash than I expect.

Poetman - Sorry, none for sale at this time. I will let you know if that changes though.


This was a lucky find. The listing said it was a 60s Zildjian. By the hammering and bell, I could tell it was something special.

16" pre-trans / second stamp, 807 grams.
Superb condition. Not as splashy as expected, but still a quick decay. Kind of perfect.

16" trans stamp, 1068 grams.

Excellent crash, but also pairs nicely with the above 16" pre-trans for a large set of hats. Really nice patina on this. Hard to see in the photo, but there's an area on the edge that is green from years of handling.

Interesting cymbal here.

18" 1279 grams, hand hammered, no stamp, no ink.

Definitely looks and sounds like a 50s A. Someone used sticks with black paint. Got to get some lacquer thinner on there.

10" first stamp, 216 grams.

I found this hanging on the wall of a blacksmith shop in Delaware. Still has the signature under the bell.

8" pretrans, 118 grams.

Found this at the Chicago Drum Show. Still has bas signature under the bell. Could be an ink stamp though. Also has 6.75 in wax pencil. Could be the original price.

16.25" tran stamp, 742 grams.

I've been after this unicorn for a long time. It's basically a giant splash. Appears to have been used as a coaster for a time, and possibly a hihat. There is a hole drilled in the bell for some reason. No cracks though.

17" small stamp, 1257 grams.

Unique hammering and lathing on this one. Beautiful crash. Really flexible.

18" trans stamp, 1385 grams.

Found at the Chicago Drum Show a couple years back for really cheap due to the repair at the bell.

Looks like there was a spider crack situation, and someone applied molten silver solder to the cracks without heating the bronze. Even used a bronze fender washer under the bell. Not really sure how they did this, but it works. And it sounds amazing.
