  • Here’s a THIN 60 year old Light and Complex Zildjian:

  • Truly HAND HAMMERED 60-year-old 18” Vintage Zildjian Light Crash Ride in terrific shape.  Don’t get some big box store “vintage homage” “redesign” when you can get the original! 

  • This 18” makes the perfect complement to a 20” or 22”  Crashable. Rideable. Light and complex but also controlled compliments of the 18” size. 

  • Many earlier jazz recordings were done on 18s”. That was a popular size 50 and 60 years ago. 

  • Weighing in at a THIN 1397 grams this 18” makes a fantastic Light Ride or smaller Crash Ride. 

  • A pinch dry with a broad spread. Golden light and airy tone with that telltale 1950s Zildjian A Hand Hammered complexity. Sound amazing with a golden, light touch. 

  • Good subtle definition that remains controlled and mellow compliments of the smaller size. 

  • Very solid bell for an 18”.   

  • Crash on it for a very full and broad spread. 

  • Can easily be your main ride or makes a terrific Left Side mellow Light Ride. 

  • Whatever you decide this 1950s Hand Hammered Zildjian can occupy many positions on a kit.

  • A Vintage A from around the time of Miles’ Kind of Blue is quite a nice Zildjian!

  • And it’s actually Hand Hammered! Gorgeous craftsmanship.
