  • There ain’t no China Swish like this out there today!  

  • This Unique, massive 4.5” edged 22” sounds like it came right out of 1948!  Super Vintage Swish Vibe on this Paper Thin 22”. 

  • The closest thing to this beauty in a modern cymbal was possibly the Zildjian Oriental Classic China in the rare 22” size. But that hasn’t been made in years, and this cymbal is thinner and much, much more organic and complex - and it’s actually Hand Hammered. 

  • As many of you may know, the Masterwork Thalles Series offers one of the most complex, responsive cymbals out there. They're some of my favorites - hand hammered and lathed after the Vintage Zildjian Istanbul Ks style with an inner plain that has a Pre-Aged sand blasted style finish. 

  • Stunningly THIN 1507 gram weight makes this 22”  extremely responsive. 

  • Extremely THIN and responsive.  The most responsive china you will find. 

  • Unheard of HUGE 4.5” flanged edge then beckons for your strike and gives this 22” a tone that modern cymbals lack. 

  • Super Old a school Complex, dark, organic, opens very quickly for a big 22”, extremely responsive at lower volume settings but has no problem cutting - it has a biting quick attack. 

  • Glorious as an alternate Ride - a la Mel Lewis

  • Very light and airy, exotic riding capabilities. Complex and organic. 

  • Perfect Condition. What BIG china should be, but fortunately aren’t in today’s Guitar Center A Custom world.  

  • Nothing else like it - unless you have a time machine.
