  • VINTAGE FACTORY STAMPED “CRASH RIDE.” Perfect for that BEATLES Crash Ride wash. 

  • And at only 1367 grams, it’s absolutely fantastic sounding.  From the late 1960s or maybe 1970.  

  • This one has the rare razor thin edges making it remarkably responsive and sing when crashed upon! 

  • Have a listen! A perfect Vintage Beauty that’s full and semi-dark!  Sounds like it was plucked right off at the stage at WOODSTOCK. 
  • 50-year-old semi-complex-sounding THIN Zildjian 18” “CRASH RIDE.”

  • And that’s not that easy to find these days - most thinner Zildjians succumbed at the end of a 2B stick inside the Rainbow Room in 1987.  

  • Edges blur when struck - that’s hard to find on a Crash Ride. 

  • Glorious semi-dark and complex Vintage Crash tone that remains responsive compliments of that 1356 gram weight!

  • Gorgeous wall-of-white noise RINGO vibe.  
  • The tone we’ve heard for generations of rock, pop, and soul. 

  • Of course, if you have a light touch, you can easily use this 18” as a small Light Ride or a swelling Crash Ride. When you crash ride on it, it unleashes a gorgeous torrent of white noise that has a broad spread.  

  • Magnificent condition for being a half-century-old Zildjian. Nice patina. Light typical use for a 5 decade old cymbal. 

  • Factory stamped! 

  • Vintage As are always in style, and this stamped 18” Crash Ride is exceptionally hard to find these days. 
  • No need to paw through an ocean of modern Zildjians to find one that kinda-sorta sounds vintage-ish.   

  • The REAL DEAL right here! From the Golden Era of Rock.
