Anyone know something about these? I have asked this question before and I think it was Monkey Boy shed light on 16" flat ride from maybe late 60's to mid seventies, 14" not sure on these... Well a quick google search and Cymbal Wiki tells me there were 14" thin and medium flat rides.. just leave this here for any one else who may need the info..

Interesting. Wouldn´t be surprised if someone tried one of these as a hi hat bottom and unwittingly created the prototype for the Quick Beat. :)

I used to have the Paiste catalogue from 1979 - it showed that some cymbals were available from 12" to 24", the flatrides however started at 16" by then.
