Credit to the Paiste one for inspiring me: And any of you who have a Kerope, can you please confirm they begin AD. We don't have them here yet, and I haven't spotted enough of a closeup photo to check. Footnote: I hadn't twigged to the pattern myself, but I found this on Rob Scott: Zildjian began etching serial numbers into their cymbals in 1994, making them easier to date.Each serial number begins with two characters, and these characters represent the last two digits of the year which the cymbal was manufactured.Paiste is an Estonian and Finnish word that means "shine".Their eponymous sunrise can be seen in the logos for their 2002 line and their Twenty line (discontinued in 2011).
Therefore, the first wave of serialized cymbals available from Zildjian would begin ID, representing 94, (because I is the 9th letter of the alphabet, and D is the 4th) indicating that the cymbal was manufactured in 1994; serial numbers appearing on cymbals made in 2000 begin JJ, with 2001 beginning JA, et cetera; 2010 serial numbers will read AJ, while 2011 will read AA, and so on.The "New Dimension" were introduced in 1985, with different hammering patterns and lathing.Contrary to the old heavy and random hammering pattern in the Dark models, the hammering becomes more evenly spaced, except in the China, where the hammering turned very heavy and random, while in the former Dark China models the hammering was very light and regularly spread all over the cymbal.The ND treatment was applied to these types: Dark Crash, Dark Ride, Dark Medium, Dark China, Short Crash, and Bell Ride.
Articulate but not overbearing ping, beautiful wash, great bell. The first Paiste cymbals were produced in 1906 by Estonian musician Michail Toomas Paiste in his instrument repair shop in Saint Petersburg, Russia, to customer orders.
