    SOLD ...Well yes, it IS for sale but the question is regarding the series. I picked this up from the orgional owner in the late 1980's and I remember it had red ink, but I cleaned off all the logos (as I did with all my cymbals back then) and now I am a bit unsure what it was! I know, I'm getting old! LOL

    Here is what we DO know about this cymbal... it is a 20" Paiste China Type and weighs 1,771 grams and sounds great! As I said, I remember it being a 2002 but it has been suggested that it might also be a 3000 series as well. As they both had red ink, I cannot rule that out but I can tell you it was NOT a reflector finish as I actually buffed it into the finish you see here when I was taking off the ink. I dont recall that I meant to but it was the nature of the metal used by Paiste.

    It is in good condition with a clean hole and no structural dings, dents or damage. It has a couple of slight flea bites but to hard to pick them up on camera. I could clean them up with a little paper they are so small. Yet here is the real issue, the cymbal cleans up to a nice reflective finish as you see here, but it will quickly start to revert back to a soft luster so that option is yours, to keep it polished or let it go natural. But you can see 30 years of scratches and polishing marks in the cymbal and I dont think that is going to change. I tried to show them so you can see what your getting. From a foot away they disappear but when you look closely polishing marks are present.

    Thank said, I will keep the cost low... $150.00 with free Pay Pal and Delivery in the lower 48. Yell with any questions comment or rotten tomatoes for abusing this great cymbal!

    And as always, sorry for the awful cell phone videos. I just bought an IRIG to try and improve my recording. But the cymbal is smoothed and more musical than you here it on the videos but this is still not a bad representation of the tone.

    OK gang, it's posted on every platform now but I obviously prefer to sell it on DFO due to the fees. As I have mentioned, once I decide that I dont need a piece of gear, I like it gone as quickly as possible, otherwise I wind up holding on to it all. As crazy as this board is about Paiste, I hope someone will make me an offer before it sells elsewhere. As I said up top, I am not easily offend so make an offer.

    Thanks,Ward
