  • This is an amazing 70 year old Zildjian - the kind people are always asking me to find. 

  • Here it is!
  • Along with the Trans Stamps, the 1950s BLOCK STAMP Logo is my favorite era of Zildjian.

  • It’s their gilded age.  There’s something about the metal from that era. It’s soft and buttery and pliable. And it’s actually Hand Hammered - imagine that!  

  • And that’s exactly the case with this particular VERY THIN 20” 7 decade old Zildjian.

  • This is the tone Zildjian built their name on. 

  • Only 1881 grams!  That’s very hard to find on a Block Stamp today - the ones that survived the 80s are usually well over 2000 grams.

  • This particular 20” is DARK and has as exceptionally warm, light complexity. 

  • The 70-year-old dark gold patina has aged and mellows this 20” out magnificently.

  • Light and woody stick attack that is followed by a wonderful glowing warm Block Stamp Hand Hammered wash. 

  • Crash on it all you want - it’s 1881 grams!!

  • This is a spectacular Vintage Zildjian. An incredible Thin LIGHT Ride or even Thin Dark Crash.

  • Great shape.  Slight keyhole because someone played this beauty back in 1962 because it’s a good one. Typical light wear.  

  • Don’t pay more money for a “Vintage Vibe” Zildjian.

  • It’s a lot more fun to just play the original 70 year old one. And this one is a beauty.  That, I guarantee.
