I was it is a 24 inch, and sometimes a 22 inch, but heavier than a traditional K of the time. Tony's touch made it appear to be a sound of a lighter cymbal, and also Tony played using his rebound fingers to determine execution. All fingers. different approach.he said he never hit a note he didn't intend. His ride patterns on "my funny valentine and four and more" on the faster tunes, almost, sarcastically, want to give up drums!

THe guy who actually has the cymbals wont get rid of them.
