    Would be interested in what you may have:

    Zildian A 14" crash
    K stuff
    HHX stuff
    temple blocks
    Remo Djembe

    I have too many cymbals and want to thin out some. You won't insult me with any offer! I like gear like the rest of us!

    Would you be interested in trading for a Zildjian K Custom ride 20". I believe this is from the 90's when they first brought this cymbal out. It is completely unlathed, so it has clear, deep stick definition, a loud bell, and it's considered to have dark overtones. However, I have gone to K Dark Customs and this K-ride doesn't sound all that dark to me. More like it's just got a touch of that flavor.
    Anyway, the cymbal is in good shape. No key-holing, cracks, flea bites, or other blemishes. Just the decal has faded a bit. K Custom 20 - 8.jpg K Custom 20 - 9.jpg

    The diameter is 20 inches. I don't have the weight on hand, but other examples of the same cymbal weighed in around 2800g or so.

    You can also get an idea of what it sounds like from this video:
