I could not find the cymbal you're talking about. I went to the Octagon site and it's weird but when I did see them, none of them had the holes like in the vid. (both had holes but he mentioned a 20" with the holes, right?)

yer your right it is a 20" with wholes , i think i found it but still cant find any dealers.plus i have no idea what its called seeing as its all in brazillian. Well ill keep trying
Thanks for your help much apreciated!

EDIT: This might be it , i belive it might be a power crash seeing as its the only 20" crash in that model http://www.octagon-cymbals.com.br/produ ... mentos.asp

If he's a highly respected drummer and endorsee, they might have given him a prototype to test out and throw out there in the public eye.

I've seen a vids of him (Eric Moore) on YouTube.
Yes , it may be a prototype and haven't seen a dealer yet.
