20" Zildjian EAK Crash Ride 2 - rivets 2031 grams from 1982-88
Rare cymbal in great used conditon.
The Early American K Zildjian cymbals or “EAK” cymbals are distinguished by a large K on the front and back of the cymbal. These were produced at the Avedis Zildjian factory in Norwell, Massachusetts, after the company won the rights to the “K Zildjian” brand. For a few years, they produced hand-hammered cymbals and thus they are included here.
Reverse side of the same cymbal. If it says “Zildjian” on the bottom side instead of the big letter K, it is not an EAK, period. This is the distinguishing characteristic of the EAK.
