  • This Vintage Zildjian 18s” is one of the driest ones you will come across.  It has a fantastic straight up stick definition - and that’s hard to find on a Vintage Sizzle. 

  • I believe this 18” is harkens from the 1950s, it has a very weathered appearance/surface - like it was in a year-long sandstorm. And that no doubt contributes to the terrific attack and very dry tone. 

  • Extremely focused and chime-like stick attack that is fairly dark and low pitched for a smaller cymbal. 

  • Sounds very much like a K Ride - but 50 years old.  That’s the darker leanings talking.  But it’s much drier than any fully lathed K could dream to be. 

  • 1648 grams gives it a strong definition.  

  • Outfitted with 5 brass butterfly style rivets like it’s 1947.  That’s the vibe of this one - very old school look and tone and feel. 

  • Darker. Lower pitched. Controlled. Dry.  Focused. Strong bell. Lightening-like crash accents.  Beautiful old-timey rivet sizzle rumble.  

  • A unique tone that is simultaneously familiar to the ear.  Classic vintage.  

  • Great for recording, can be a small main ride or terrific Left Side Dry Ride.
