- Very smooth and delicate sounding EARLIER 1960s HAND HAMMERED Vintage Zildjian 18” Sizzle Ride in the Vintage Sizzle configuration.
- Super LIGHT and AIRY sounding with a solid definition and a hint of smokiness.
- 1549 grams makes it play like a Thin to Medium Thin Semi-Dark SIZZLE.
- Absolutely perfect stick attack to wash ratio.
- It’s heavy enough to deliver solid stick articulation but has a lightness to it.
- Overall very responsive.
- 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 patina. Hand Hammering throughout.
- Outfitted with ALL 6 rivets in the old school fashion - looks, sounds and plays like it’s 1964.
- 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.
