  • Very smooth and delicate sounding 1950s HAND HAMMERED Vintage Zildjian 18” Sizzle Ride 

  • WITH ALL 8 rivets installed - just like it’s 1957.  

  • Super LIGHT and AIRY sounding with a hint of smokiness.  Very mellow. 

  • Vintage 1950s Zildjian Light Crash Ride Sizzle
  • It has that beautiful Hand Hammered look and tone. 

  • At 1536 grams this 18” plays like a Thin to Medium Thin Semi-Dark SIZZLE. Warm.  Buttery. 

  • Overall very responsive with a great woody stick attack. 

  • 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.

  • Fairly dark tone for an 18”.  Crashes like a dream! 

  • Great spread while still having the classy control of an 18”.  Overall very smooth for a Vintage 18” A. 

  • 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.

  • Terrific shape, especially for being 6 decades old. Hand hammered. A few pinpoint circular marks on the plain - not sure if it’s the old hammering etc. 

  • Primed for 8 rivets and currently outfitted with ALL 8. 

  • Add or subtract to your liking but it sounds amazing right where it is. With all of them in its extremely LIGHT and responsive.  

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

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