    Default 80s and 90s Zildjian Crashes

    Looking over ebay it seems like there a bunch of crashes out there on cl and ebay that aren't old enough to be given a vintage price, but are old enough to have a nice patina. The thin crashes (IMO) are really sweet. These crashes often go (depending on size and condition) from $40 to $80.
    I currently have a $55 bid on a 20 that looks pretty nice.
    These may be the used gear steal of the year.

    Yup, I've noticed this as well. That crash looks like it came from the early 1990s. That would be a good crash.

    I'd love to have a couple of thin crashes from that era as well.

    I have to ask a question that I am not 100% sure on...what date did Zildjian start using the large printed ZILDJIAN on cymbals...my first Z purchased in 1968-69 only had the small logo etched ( stamped ?) on it.

    You are so right. But don't spread the word too much.

    Love the oldies except mine are all Z's, and Z Custom's. No Z3's yet but might get an A Custom soon. I saw a pair of New Beat hats for around $100 the other day and I know where there is a pair of Z Custom Dyno Beats that have my finger on the trigger.
