  • 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.
