  • Here’s RARE, VERY CLEAN, long discontinued Zildjian…the 20” CHINA LOW

  • In a shimmering PLATINUM FINISH! 

  • No Modern Zildjian sounds like this - this 20” is much, much lower-pitched, and infinitely more mellow than any newer Zildjian China.

  • And the Platinum Finish gives it a beautiful crystalline shimmer that floats on top. 

  • The very low, almost FLAT profile gives this Platinum China Low a darker, lower-pitched tone and makes it a joy to ride on.  Almost flat playing surface.

  • Very exotic-sounding - if this were still around it would probably be in Zildjian’s effects or Oriental Series.

  • 1742 grams gives it a Thin to Medium Thin constitution, which is great because it has the combined feature of being both mellow and capable in louder settings. And that’s rare. 

  • The flat surface makes for easy, mellow riding - a la Mel Lewis. It’s very responsive at this weight for this series. 

  • Keeps a foot in exotic, vintage land!  But can still penetrate a modern mix.

  • All with the SHIMMER of a CLEAN Platinum-finish that lingers above the attack. 

  • Fantastic condition. Aged 35 years and very clean. No issues.

  • You can’t get this Mellow Low 20”, and definitely not as a Platinum. 

  • This is a great, exotic Zildjian that you never see nor hear!   And it’s one of the cleanest Platinums you will ever see.
