Upcycled Zildjian 20" K Constantinople Repaired Ride w/3 Rivets
This cymbal had extensive lathe cracks from poorly drilled rivet holes. We cut out the damaged area and reinstalled the rivets (properly) closer to the outside edge. This is now a really articulate cymbal with a roaring crash and a super short decay save for the rivet sizzle. Surely not as complex as it was originally but still a really cool sounding cymbal. This is a really interesting alternative crash/ride or perhaps an economic way to get a more realistic jazz ride sound without having to pay a premium price.
