  • The first cataloged BRILLIANT FINISH Zildjian - yes!  This is the rare Original A & Cie series 20” and it’s a beautiful sounding Light Sizzle Ride that crashes.

  • Dont guess at some picture!  Have a listen to how smooth this one is. 
  • Very light and delicate sounding Original Brilliant Finish A And CIE Vintage Zildjian 20” Light Sizzle Crash Ride.
  • Primed for 17 rivets like it belonged to ART BLAKEY and currently outfitted with 8. Add or remove to your liking, but it sounds great right now! 

  • Super LIGHT and AIRY sounding with a balanced and euphonic stick attack on top with a very subtle  Brilliant Shimmer.  

  • At only 2142 grams (thinner for this vintage series) it plays like a Thin to Medium Thin Light SIZZLE that’s smooth and easily crashable!  It has an enough tension and weight to ride well. And it’s mellowed half-a-century! Literally. 

  • Overall very responsive. Great stick attack for an 8 rivet sizzle. 

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

  • Great spread while still having the classy control of the Vintage Series.

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

  • Great shape. Light use. The surface is worn and very smooth and that’s why it has such a smooth and mellow tone. No issues. 

  • Don’t spend more on the new faux vintage ones. 

  • This 50 year old Zildjian will serve you well.
