This ride is about 8 months old, bought from Guitar Center for $249. I have since found a ride that better suits my needs, and selling it back to a store is a joke, they offer about 20$ for any cymbal these days. There are two nicks on the edge of the cymbal which have been there since I bought it, and have not affected the tone or playability of the cymbal. I can e-mail you pictures at your request if you are interested. I am looking for about $150, but price may be negotiable. E-mail me at email@example.com for more info.
