    Vintage Pies/Small Holes

    I've got a number of vintage cymbals with smaller holes than contemporary pies. I thought I read recently that these cymbals would fit the new Ludwig flat base stands. I tried searching the Forum for an answer but came up dry. Anyone have any info on this. Thanks in advance.

    Zildjian Serial Numbers

    I think Zildjian began putting serial numbers on cymbals somewhere back in the '90s. Two questions: 1. Does anyone know if the numbers identify the year made? 2. Was/is the serial number on ALL Zildjian models, i.e. A, K, ZBT, etc., or only on certain ones? Thanks in advance.

    New Tama and PDP sets

    Anybody notice the new Tama birch and PDP maple sets on the Zzound website? Apparently, they even have a maple version of the X7. Wonder how the quality is.
