just got offered a 20" Zildjian K constantinople high bell high thin cymbal for $240, I heard that they were about $400 usually, so I was wondering what people think of them, if anyone has one, and if they would be useful in rock/blues applications. Thanks.

I think they sound amazing, especially with rivets. I don't know how they'd be in blues or rock, since i've only heard them in jazz, and don't think they're designed for heavy playing. However, if you don't hit too hard, you could use it as a big crash, since it sounds amazing when crashed.
Whether you'd use it or not, I'd buy it since you can probably sell it for more than $240 if you want to.

yeah tahts a sweet price. Personally i dont think they are amazing, but cymbals are personal preference, and these are seen to be the best.
buy it and re-sell.

$400 is list and the selling price is $240 (street value). I don't know that it is such a good deal, especially if you haven't heard the cymbal in person. I would really look at the way a cymbal looks. You need to hear the cymbal you are buying!

I was also looking at getting one, here is an informative article on the Constantinople Model.

Hey guys, went and played one and I think it sounds amazing! I think it'll work well in blues, and i don't ride that much in rock, and i already have 2 crashes and i'm possibly getting a 3rd, so im not sure if it'd be used for that, but i'm getting it definitely for the blues, I like a jazzy ride in my blues stuff.
