  • Very smooth and delicate sounding DARK 1960s Vintage Zildjian 18” Sizzle Crash Ride. Outfitted with all 6 rivets in the original Zildjian configuration.

  • Super LIGHT and AIRY sounding with a solid definition and a hint of smokiness. Like the Armand Ride but 50 years old and darker. 

  • 1436 grams makes it play like a Thin to Medium Thin Semi-Dark SIZZLE.   Not heavy or clangy. 

  • Fairly low pitched for an 18”.  

  • Absolutely perfect stick attack to wash ratio. 

  • It’s heavy enough to deliver solid stick articulation but has a lightness to it - the great patina beefs up the definition. 

  • Overall very responsive. 

  • Easily Crashable. Could be a straight up 18” crash. 

  • Where this 18” really shines is the airy, LIGHTNESS it brings to a setup. This 18” Sizzle delivers a warm, slightly complex but mellowed and aged SIZZLE tone.

  • It was made 60 years ago. And it SOUNDS like a cymbal made over 60 years ago. 
  • Modern Zildjians are great - but they don’t do THIS.

  • No issues. Amazing shape with a great chocolate brown patina. 

  • Primed for 6 rivets and outfitted with all 6!  

  • Add or subtract to your liking but it sounds amazing right where it is.

  • Don’t spend more on the new faux vintage ones. 

  • It’s cheaper and more fun to play the original and it sounds better.
