Well if he sells cymbals as fast as those 70's rides in his lot, Maybe dropping the price was a good idea.

That's a Picture of my dad's place around 1971 .

We had a family dealership from 1948- 2018.
New Fiat dealer there in that pic. I can see new 1971's (I was 16) and the Avanti out front; he always had a few; In 1953-56 he was a Packard Service center ( hence the later Studebaker connection)

Fiat was a franchise he took in 1966 (1966 lasted until 1982) That picture looks like Fall of 1971.

Anyway I'll tell ya a story. When Fiat (the Italian company) began in earnest in America it needed a distributor. In steps Franklin Roosevelt Jr. Fiat-Roosevelt Motors was the nationwide name.

The building you see in the picture (still stands today- sold to another business) FDJ Jr. visited -personally- every new (grand opening) Fiat Franchise in 1966.

So naturally he stopped there. There he is- FDR Jr. signing a (hard cover Fiat History) book (I still have) with my Dad to his right. On the hood (frunk) of an 850 Sedan in the showroom of the building in the picture). In Jeannette Pa.
And a picture doing a deal (actually even trade in 67 Cad Convert for new 124 S)

Ya I kinda knew that was an old pic. Those cars gave it away. I never used to repair foreign cars but today they are so numerous you lose if you don't. I'd rather work on those cars in the pic than anything today. They may be "throw a tool" cars, but much better than electronic this and that. 70 years, he did everything right. Car dealers change like the weather in New England.

Just as you'd expect very pretty huh? I asked him to record another where he crashed/played/ heavier a bit; see what happens..
https://reverb.com/item/25664065-zil...de-cymbal-1970


lot of weight (3500) to carry to a gig but different story in a home studio where it wouldn't move
either way it's Turkish Zildjian late era sweet last era/sound/
I asked him to hit it a little harder next time..

It's interesting that its been drilled for 8 rivets. While I see that a lot on old A's I don't recall seeing it very often on an old K. It reminded me that the current use of rivets is generally different than it was back then. Current practice today is to add 1, 2, or 3 rivets, usually only a couple of inches apart. Back in the day an 8, or sometimes 6, rivet pattern around the periphery was very common. I drilled a couple of cymbals like that myself in the late '60s. I wonder when the trend changed to fewer rivets?

Back to your cymbal, do you have a sound file by any chance?
