I happen to hear Peter Erskine playing the 22” Kerope cymbal on a DW info-video and thought “Man, I’ve got to get that cymbal!” Gigged with it for the first time last night and it’s the exact sound I’ve been long searching for. It has a great washy 60’s tone with a distinctive ping.

It looks like things have finally come full circle. The "new" Kerope cymbals are "old" K's!!! Hopefully the weights of each cymbal in the same diameter will vary. No need for uniformity here. Let us have some fun picking them. Great job!
