  • Very smooth and delicate sounding, over 50 year old 1960s Vintage Zildjian 20” Sizzle Ride.

  • Forget all the “vintage homage” throwback cymbals Zildjian keeps putting out - this is the REAL DEAL! 

  • Have a listen.  It sounds like it was plucked off a Red Garland album from 1964. 

  • Only 2074 grams gives it a Thin and Light constitution. It has enough body and weight to offer a solid attack definition - it can cut nicely in medium volumes but still remains light and delicate sounding.

  • Where this 20” really shines is the airy, LIGHTNESS it brings to a setup. This 20” Sizzle delivers a warm, slightly complex but mellowed and aged SIZZLE tone. 

  • Great spread while still having a classy control.

  • It was made over 50 years ago. And it SOUNDS like a cymbal made over 50 years ago. 
  • Modern Zildjians are great - but they don’t do THIS.

  • Primed and outfitted with two rivets for that gorgeous glow.  
  • No issues. Beautiful light golden patina. 
  • Don’t spend more on the new faux vintage ones. 

  • It’s cheaper and more fun to play the original.
