Default Camber from Canada...

Who can tell me something about these? 14" HH's, 16" crash, 18" Crash-Ride. Came with an L.P. stencil set from the early 80's. They aren't the worst Cambers I've played.

Then you must use ZBT's to scoop up dog poop...It would be funny to see a list of the worlds worst cymbals here on the VDF. My son has a ZXT crash that is so bad I could not hit it. It was actually painful to listen to...

I've seen so many variations of these cymbals. Some are pretty good, not so good and yuck. I'm still learning about these myself. Made in Canada and also Made in Germany or stamped West Germany.
Is there a series number stamped on it?
Camber II
Camber III
Camber 200 series, 300 series
Camber Savage
Camber c-4000,
Camber c-6000 brass,
Camber c-8000 bronze, c-8000 gold

That is all that is imprinted on the cymbals except for the size and designation I/E 16" crash, 18" crash/ ride.

The stamp shown is generally considered a 70's stamp. The hollow ink logo on the underside is also thought to be late 70's/early 80's. All the hollow ink cymbals that I've owned or played sounded great. Those look nice.

I owned Camber II's back when I was getting started about year 1980 back then they suck'd very badly. They were very very durable to abuse tho
