  • Fantastic sounding 18” Complex and exotic sounding China Swish right here. This is what you wished Zildjian made. And it’s a hell of a lot less money too. 

  • Absolutely gorgeous unlathed Brilliant Wide Flange Custom or possible Prototype 18” CHINA SWISH. 

  • And this beauty is fairly THIN. Only 1244 grams.

  • I’m not exactly sure if this is a series, custom or a Prototype but it sounds amazing. 

  • Gloriously Complex with a rounded-over Swish style bell and deep Hand Hammering throughout.  

  • Handcrafted in the Old World style and that’s exactly what gives it that beautiful dark complexity.

  • This unique 18” combines a wonderfully dark attack that opens quickly into an organic complexity with a brilliant shimmering wash but decays medium fast - like a Classic China. 

  • Mellow and warm when played lightly.  Medium low-pitched for an 18” and fast. Outfitted with 4 rivets for a light Swish Sizzle Vintage tone. 

  • Can be used as a smaller alternate effects ride or Swish Knocker vibe.  

  • Has no problem cutting but is not a clanker! 

  • Kicks a Zildjian’s ass. It’s a 18” that’s actually complex and exotic sounding. 

  • No issues. Strong logos. Played for the video and that’s about it. 

  • A unique Istanbul that’s wonderfully exotic in look and tone.
