This gorgeous late 50's/early 60's 20" Intermediate Stamp K sounds exceptionally wonderful & is definitely recording studio worthy. It exhibits a beautiful, uniform patina on top & bottom, which provides the perfect backdrop for the heavy hand hammered landscape of the cymbal. As is typical for most K's of this era, it measures just slightly shy of 20" at 19&7/8". It's a nice medium-thin weight of 2386 grams, which provides that classic dry K stick sound with a dirty, smokey wash that's just interesting enough to let everyone know it's a K, but stays refined enough that you can lay into it with some vigor with out the stick sound getting washed out. The bell has a gorgeous, pure bell note, & the cymbal crashes like a champ. There are a few small flea bites, & the hole has an odd shaped keyhole as can be seen in the pics. There are 2 extremely small micro-fischers radiating from the hole, but they have most likely been there for a very long time & seem quite stable. We've played LOTS of old K's, & we're here to tell you that not all of them sound good, let alone great. This is one of the truly great ones, enjoy!
