Cheers mate! It’s a thing of beauty for sure...hmmm, maybe I should frame it and only handle with white cotton gloves; nah, scratch that, I’m gonna smash the life out of it!!! ?Let the bells ring out, let the horns resound, let the kingdom rejoice in belated relief! Al's prized Blue Bell has finally arrived. We must eat, drink, and be merry. The arduous wait is over. Now is the time for decadent mirth.
Glad you went with the Copeland model, man. It was the right thing to do. You can't have intentions of playing it though. It's too damn lovely to be struck. A single stick mark would be a crime.

Nice work mate!Very nice looking cymbal my friend. Nice.
I recently picked up a new Ludwig Speed King bass drum pedal. Sweetwater gave me $20 off. And, I bought a Slingerland Tempo King, very used from the 70s. Got the Slingy for less than 2 20s. Had it shipped to Vitalizer Drums to be cleaned and restored. Maybe even modified to a direct drive if Vincent can do that.
This cymbal has to be heard in person to truly appreciate it...I’m not surprised Stewart took it round the world with him! Absolutely over the moon...or walking on it!
excellent choice!I just pulled the trigger on my first cymbal purchase in a very very long time, a set of Amedia Ahmet Legend crashes - 17", 18", & 19".
My current cymbal collection covers a lot of ground, so absolutely not a necessary purchase, but they'll provide a specific voice I've been eyeing for some time. I'll put something up once I receive them.
