Bun E. Carlos’s Cheap Trick Cymbal Collection, Signed! Authenticated!

Bun E. Carlos has finally unlocked his cymbal vault to release 60 cymbals he’s used as the drummer in Rock ’n Roll Hall of Fame member band, Cheap Trick. Bun E’s cymbals have never been made available to the public before now. The collection includes cymbals used throughout his entire career with Cheap Trick, from their very first recordings in 1970s through his final performances with the band in 2009.

All cymbals are A. Zildjian models unless otherwise specified. All cymbals show obvious signs of use but none are cracked or damaged. Photos, video and weights are not available at this time but will be added as time allows. 
Each cymbal is hand signed by Bun E. Carlos. Most cymbals from the last 4 sections of the list below include handwritten “ history highlights” written directly on the cymbal.
