Acquired this cymbal a couple of days ago & assumed it was Brass junk. On closer inspection, looks a very nice cymbal. Lovely lathing & hand hammering. Has a great sound with good definition & no nasty overtones. I am thinking it is B20 by it's sound.
Anyone have any info on these cymbals?

Kind regards, Kevin.

I dont any info, but I too have an oddity. It looks very similar:20200614_173236.jpg

It has a rather aggressive bow. Yours looks like it might also. The stamp says EL RAJAH. It's a beautiful cymbal but has no information at all. Its 20", 24 rivit holes, and 2020g. I've had it since 2013, it came in a garage sale find. Rumor is it's from the 30s but who knows.

Nice looking cymbal. Appears well made and a B20. How much at the garage sale?
