Description: The Custom model is a pre K Custom series cymbal. The K series Custom was hammered on the relatively new rotary hammering machine, then pressed into shape, then some additional irregular hammering was added. The rotary hammer machine is why these have unusual hammering patterns compared to other Ks. You can see circles of hammering, and on the underside they "print through" as concentric circles. If this looks familiar that's because the rotary hammering machine is also used on the A Custom series.
