    Thank you for your comments!

    I have just deleted all my messages from my Inbox, so theoretically from now I can recieve incoming private messages here.

    However, I would suggest sending me an e-mail if someone is interested to:

    kalmarjazz@gmail.com

    I would rather sell her here for a Cymbalholic, who really appreciates this cymbal than on Ebay.

    Thank you again, Zoli

    Now that this cymbal has sold, I wanted to talk about all these holes in Dan's cymbal, but I did not want to further derail the sale of that beautiful old K. I met Michael Carvin a while back and he told me that Art Blakey put 28 holes in his ride - not for rivets, but essentially to dry it out and help control it by getting air to move through the cymbal and slow down the vibration of the cymbal. So I find it kind of interesting that your cymbal has 26 holes Dan...very Blakey-ish.

    Ok, now that explains it! Thanks Gabe. 26 rivets is certainly overkill. And one of this cymbalís strongest qualities is that itís super-dry, so drilling it works if thatís what youíre after. Also, the holes in this old K are larger than typical rivet holes from that eraÖlike the smaller ones in the 19 IIIa I have for sale. I think this 22 sounds really good as is or with only one or two rivets for some sustain. I canít imagine playing it with 26 but maybe Iíll give it a try . Anyway, when I get a chance Iíll record a sound file so yíall can hear it. Itís really thin at 2166 grams but has a very strong stick (no tape required) along with a beautiful old K crash and added quick, dry shoulder shanks. Itís a nice one

    By the way, this cymbal doesnít seem to be a Stamp I as originally thought. The stamp is worn so itís confusing to a novice like me. Thanks to Zen and his DIY tool it was easy to conclude that itís actually a IIIb

    So the Cymbal arrived safely Yesterday. Zoli is a great guy to deal with. So what can i say about the Cymbal? It looks much better than on the Pictures and it sounds better than on the file. That means it is one of the rarest and best Cymbals on the planet
    which remained from that periode.

    That's very cool to hear that your's is dry and has a strong stick. Would love to hear it sometime.

    I drilled a 22" of mine for 8 rivets and didn't like it. I may just go ahead and add another 8 holes to see how it starts to effect the sound.
