  • Absolutely stunning and hard to find 60-year-old odd-sized 19” Vintage Zildjian Ride or Crash Ride in terrific shape. 

  • 19s” from this era are not easy to come by, and this one makes the perfect complement to a 21 or 22, or even a matched 20”.

  • Weighing in at perfect 1996 grams this 19” offers a simply fantastic stick attack - it has a 6-decade old patina that dries this Zildjian out beautifully. 

  • Semi-dry, medium but not at all harsh.  Super mellow and focused. Aged particularly well with a pinpoint stick attack.  Good definition and penetration but still remains controlled and mellow. Very solid bell for a 19”.   Crash on it for a very full and loud Ringo-style white noise or accent.

  • Small combo Semi-dry Ride or Left Side Crash Ride to accompany your main Ride, or big 19” FULL Crash. Whatever you decide this 1950s Zildjian can occupy many positions on a kit.

  • A Vintage A from around the time of Coltrane’s BLUE TRAIN is quite a nice Zildjian!
