About This Listing

This is a rare and unique Zildjian prototype.  The serial number date code is AE - 2015.  It has the artificial patina finish found in the Kerope line.  Hammering is also consistent with the Kerope cymbals, though it does not have the over-hammered bell.  Shows stick marks and fingerprints from normal use. This is a great sounding cymbal.  Cymbal weighs 2302g. Definitely unique.

While I do not have confirmation, I believe this to be one of the 50's K Istanbul inspired rides demonstrated at PASIC 2015.  Paul Francis described these cymbals as being modeled after an old K owned by Billy Drummond.  Use the google search "Vintage K Prototype PASIC 2015" to find the video with Paul Francis describing the cymbal.  Again, I cannot confirm this is the cymbal he described, but it looks very similar and the date code fits.

Free shipping.  Ships to continental US only.
