"K." or not a "K."?

Without the trademark photo, the default setting is for this one is on NOT.

I bought some Bosphorus and some Agop brass rivets from cymbalsonly.com. The Bos rivets fit the old K. So Im in business! Tried the cymbal with three rivets on a gig yesterday. I think Ill add a couple more for the next one and keep going until I scope out the sounds.

I'm glad the Bosphorus rivets worked for you. I assume they are still made of copper. I found that these small and light weight rivets sound better than others that I've tried. I'm happy they are still available.

Okay, that makes a lot more sense. It sure did not sound like any Old K that I've ever heard
