  • This is a modern Zildjian standout that not that many people were aware of when it was produced.

  • Made in collaboration with Antonio Sanchez - going for that famous Pat Metheny sound. 

  • The Zildjian A Custom 20” FLAT TOP RIDE! And this is one of the thinnest, darkest one I’ve encountered.  

  • Long gone the way of the dodo. And that’s a shame because the combination of a Brilliant Finish on a Flat Ride is magnificent!

  • As many of you may know the absence of a bell gives the Flat Ride a very pronounced stick attack while the overtones and volume remain very controlled. 

  • And that is exactly the case with this two-dimensional wonder!  Add the dark, glassy shimmer of a Brilliant Finish and you have a glowing warm, very low pitched and smooth, DARK mellow ride with incredible stick attack.

  • 2135 grams gives it a pinpoint definition but makes it light-years from a Ping.  Much darker and subtle, very dynamic and musical.  Slightly bendable edges make it soft and pliable. 

  • No issues. Aged well with a lovely patina that mellows it out even more.  

  • Zildjian offers nothing like this tone today. Great for low to medium loud volumes. Incredible under the mic. 

  • And incredible sounding cymbal that is a real head turner because hardly anyone even knew Zildjian made it.
