Wow I can't believe this thread, if I had money I wound buy one of these, the piece will gain value over the years.
Plus Zildjian is a great company with a long history.
I've considered this. Not the Limited Edition Armand pies, but cymbals in general. On average, a used cymbal will bring in $100 (again average, some less, some more). If you have 1000 cymbals, that's an estimated average of $100,000.I just can't for the life of me understand that if it's an investment they want, since they can't play it, there's MUCH better investments than cymbals ha ha.
In 1000 years from now those Gurus will have had 37 owners, and be the most sought after kit on the planet. They will have been stolen numerous times, saved from fire not once but twice, had a family of squirrel living in them, peed on by many a dog, had numerous fluids (including bodily) spilled on them, amongst other things. I'm pretty sure they get buried in a mudslide too. They will be the things of legend, forged in a castle with the bones and blood of knaves. Wars were fought over those drums, many men and women died just trying to get a glimpse.I'm not so sure that my Gurus will go up in value. I'm never selling them so it doesn't even matter.
