Bill Bruford Cymbal

I'm sure all of you, or at least most of you know what I'm talking about. I'm looking to recreate that magical cymbal sound you hear on King Crimsons album Red. I know the whole story about the cymbal I'm just looking to see if anyone has come close to replicating the sound. I'm currently using a muted chinaboy and it's close. Any advice would help

Thanks

I know Bill Bruford sent the recordings to paiste to make a cymbal, And they never got back to him. It's a zilco crash that was thrown away by the band that was in the studio before crimson. it didn't fit in the bin so one side was bent to make it fit. It looks like an austrailian hat. At this point zilco cymbals are hard to track down so getting the exact fit would be nearly impossible. I'll check out the site for sure though and thanks
