  •  Looking for an exotic and super mellow, China that’s actually dark sounding?  
  • Well you’re outta luck because Zildjian makes NOTHING like that today.  

  • But far be it from me to curse your darkness, allow me to light a candle instead!! 

  • Don’t guess at a stock photo big box store picture. Listen to this 35 year old, discontinued Zildjian China Boy LOW 20” that’s in terrific condition! Buy with confidence! 

  • No Modern Zildjian sounds like this - this 20” is much, much lower-pitched, and infinitely more mellow than any newer Zildjian China.
  • The very low, almost FLAT profile gives this 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.

  • 1835 grams gives it a Medium Thin constitution, sounds amazing as an alternate mellow ride. Darker but with plenty of punchy attack and cut. 

  • Has a complex sizzle tone even though there are no rivets at all. 

  • The flat surface makes for easy riding - a la Mel Lewis. 

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

  • Terrific condition. Aged nearly 4 decades. Golden light patina. No issues.

  • A particularly great sounding mellow 20” China that doesn’t exist today.
