    Hey, that could be considered theft!
    Best you give 'em a call and ask where that missing 5/8" is at!






    ...kidding. Nice grab. Cymbal sounds great. -b =)

    Sounds like "K Zildjian measuring". I don't think I've ever seen an old K that was an exact number of inches across.

    The old man that makes those made old ks when Z was still in turkey. He's still making them. I think it's a metric measurement to start with and when they fine tune hammer it it can change the profile thus altering the diameter.
    Besides it gives the extra 5/8" of crucial space to keep Jeffry the guitar playa happy

    Metric target measurement: yes, probably.
    Inaccurate (or just "approximate") circle shearing and trimming: yes.
    Hammering to change the profile alters diameter: not a significant factor.

    Wow, awesome cymbal.

    Would love to hear your rig--that mega-dirty agop with the cleaner kcons...

    What kind of music is this group playing? The similarities to a Steve Jordan cymbal setup are pretty clear!

    This is what I'm getting at. They're not a precise number of centimeters either

    Original rock/funk/pop trio with extremely talented and EXTREMELY busy guitarist and bassist. Rather than try to fight them for space, I'm laying low and groovin'. The big pies work to my advantage in this situation and are definitely a tip o' the hat to Mr. Jordan.
