  • A fantastic sounding Light Sizzle that sounds like it was plucked right off a 1960 Columbia Jazz Recording! 

  • Very smooth and delicate sounding EARLY 1960s HAND HAMMERED Vintage Zildjian 18” Sizzle Ride in terrific shape. 

  • Super LIGHT and AIRY sounding with a solid definition and a hint of sizzle sibilance. 

  • 1727 grams gives it terrific stick attack on top with a lightness that follows.  

  • 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. Great crash accents.  

  • Many famous recordings were done on 18s”! 

  • 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 golden patina. Hand Hammering throughout.  

  • Primed for 3 rivets and currently outfitted with all 3.  

  • Add or subtract to your liking but it sounds amazing right where it is.

  • Can be a main ride or Left Side Light Crash Ride.  

  • Don’t spend more on the new faux vintage ones that you can’t even hear before you buy. 

  • Have a listen to this one! It sounds killer and it’s cheaper and more fun to play the 60 year old original.
