  • Here’s a cymbal Zildjian made for 2 days in 1983.

  • I have only seen 3 of these in 25 years.

  • It must have been at the NAMM booth for that year and that was it.

  • The 19” Medium Ride! 

  • Much more controlled than its larger 20” brethren, this rare-sized Medium 19” makes a great Main Ride for low to medium volumes and smaller setups…

  • OR….

  • Makes a terrific Left Side Ride for larger configurations. 
  • What’s interesting about this 40-year-old Zildjian is that it has the bright and LIGHT high end that is reminiscent of a late 1950s Zildjian - that light high-end Zildjian A tone you hear on records.

  • But it’s also a little bit different, it’s more focused than the 50s ones snd has a bit of clean glassiness that you find in 80s As.

  • Bright and Light with a fantastic bell for a 19”. It cuts quite well.

  • It crashes like a big, full medium. 

  • Amazing shape for being 4 decades old. 

  • No issues. Very clean. Exceedingly rare.
