Maybe that's what the seller is hoping for..Good..luck..
I agree that its overpriced. And it never ceases to amaze me how some sellers like this one, think that somebody's going to be willing to plunk down 2 large for a cymbal that they can neither hear before hand or return if it proves to to be unsatisfactory. Ain't gonna happen.

It's not going to happen; a guy will buy 5 Bosphorus or 5 AK's before.. It's unfair to drummers to ask crazy price.. Put it at a $1 and see where it goes. Don't sit for years on the big price It's denying someone making music playing gigs on it.

Wait. nevermind. They are no gigs.

It eventually sold for $742.40 after a few relists. This was back in Dec 2016 through April 2017. It took a long time to sell. I blame the "experts" who got the seller all excited. The other cymbal was a light one at 1134g and it sold for $1742.17 back in Feb 2018. That one took a week to sell and had 34 bids.
And that, in case you might be wondering what it sounds like, would be this one:

That's the one and only thin Constantinople K. that I've ever seen or heard of in this lifetime! And he had to pay what would be the typical price for a 22" Istanbul K. new stamp just to get it too.

That has to be the largest dollar per inch ratio ever seen in all of cymbal-dom!

So stick that into your data-base and analyze it.

Yes I did. And that one was even a thin jazz cymbal; the one and only I've ever seen of of that type. The others in that thread were all orchestral paired heavies. And don't forget there was that legendary pair of 22"'s from the 1930's movie. Just think of this: nobody today makes orchestral 22" cymbals anymore. What a shame; even Avedis Zidljian gave up on them.

That thread was the one that inspired Dr. Bong of Cymbalholic days to make a cameo appearance; and then was never heard from again.
