  • The first cataloged BRILLIANT FINISH Zildjian - yes!  This is the rare Original A & Cie series 18” and it’s a beautiful sounding light Sizzle! 
  • Very light and delicate sounding Original Brilliant Finish A And CIE Vintage Zildjian 18” Light Sizzle Crash Ride.
  • Primed for 8 rivets and currently outfitted with ALL 8 Rivets! 

  • Super LIGHT and AIRY sounding with a hint of Brilliant Shimmer on top. 

  • At ONLY 1439 grams it plays like a Thin to Medium Thin Light SIZZLE that’s smooth and easily crashable!  It has an enough tension and weight to ride well. And it’s mellowed half-a-century! Literally. 

  • Overall very responsive. Great stick attack for an 8 rivet sizzle. 

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

  • Great spread while still having the classy control of an 18”. Decays fairly quickly.  Controlled. 

  • It was made 50 years ago. And it SOUNDS like a cymbal made 50 years ago. 
  • Modern Zildjians are great - but they don’t do THIS.

  • Great shape.  Light use.  No issues. 

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

  • This is the Original Brilliant - and it’s very hard to find! Especially as a Sizzle.
