  • This is a modern Zildjian standout that not that many people were aware of when it was produced.

  • The Zildjian A Custom 20” FLAT TOP RIDE!

  • Long gone the way of the dodo. And that’s a shame because the combination of a Brilliant Finish on a Flat Ride is magnificent!

  • What I love about this rare cymbal is that for a Zildjian, it is very in-Zildjian! 

  • As many of you may know the absence of a bell gives the Flat Ride a very pronounced stick attack while the overtones and volume remain very controlled. 

  • And that is exactly the case with this two-dimensional wonder!  Add the dark, glassy shimmer of a Brilliant Finish and you have a glowing warm, very low pitched and smooth, DARK mellow ride with incredible stick attack.

  • 2296 grams gives it a pinpoint definition but makes it light-years from a Ping.  Much darker and subtle, very dynamic and musical.

  • This particular one has an exceptional glassy shimmer to it. 

  • Perfect for very low to medium loud volumes.  It makes an amazing main ride for mellow settings and a gorgeous alternate ride! 

  • No issues. Aged well with a light patina.  Overall very clean!  Aged and mellowed over 2 decades! 

  • Zildjian offered nothing like this tone today and they’re hard to find!
