  • Dammit Zildjian! Of all the China Series to discontinue, why the hell did you discontinue the Classic?!

  • This Series is by far my favorite Zildjian China Series - that luscious, juicy, 4" Lip beckons for your strike. 

  • And this is without a doubt the THINNEST and DRIEST one of these I’ve ever heard. 
  • As the name suggests, this Classic China has a profile and tone that is similar to the famous and complex-sounding Chinas that have been around for millennia in China.

  • Weighing in at very thin 1167 grams, this particular 18" has a very responsive attack with a broad spread. Being thin, it opens up quickly and also has a very quick decay - complements of the dark patina. 

  • Complex, fast, dry, cutting - this discontinued Classic China has one foot in the past with the projection of the modern cymbal. 

  • Fantastic condition with a killer patina. 

  • Zildjian should have kept this one in the catalog - but alas…
