  • Very LIGHT and COMPLEX with a hint of dryness, HAND HAMMERED Early 1960s Vintage Zildjian 18” Sizzle Crash Ride. 

  • Wavy Hand Hammered surface with a beautiful golden hue! This particular 18” sounds incredible! 

  • Dark sounding with a LIGHT and AIRY wash, it’s aged and fairly focused when crashed upon - compliments of that 60 year old patina. 

  • Medium low profile gives it a darker, lower pitch than many 18s”. Hand Hammered. 

  • At 1497 grams this 18” plays like a Thin Light Complex SIZZLE with darker, drier leanings. 

  • Overall extremely responsive - airy, organic attack. 

  • Where this 18” really shines is the airy, LIGHT LIVELINESS it brings to a setup. This 18” Sizzle delivers a very warm but mellowed and aged darker SIZZLE tone.

  • Crashes like a dream! 

  • Great spread while still having the classy control of an 18” with a great patina. 

  • It was made over 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 cracks or issues. Typical light wear around the center hole typical for a 6 decade old cymbal. 

  • Primed for 4 rivets and currently outfitted with all 4 rivets. 

  • Sounds awesome - very 1958 vibes.  

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

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