  • Here’s an amazing sounding darker Hand Hammered Vintage Zildjian 20” - one of the nicest you will find.  
  • Fantastic sounding 60 year old Zildjian that is not your typical Medium or Ping styled Ride. This 20” is much darker and lower pitched than most.  It has a low profile and that gives it a lower pitch and darker tone. 

  • If you look closely you’ll see this Zildjian is Hand Hammered and from the early 1960s. Beautiful hammering! The craftsmanship on this one looks more like a 1950s Zildjian. 

  • This 20” is dark, low in pitch and very smooth sounding with a light Hand Hammered complexity. 

  • And it’s definitely crashable.  It delivers a big full dark crash when laid in to. It can easily be used as a big crash or crash ride.  

  • Imagine a Zildjian K Custom Dark Ride - but as a 50 year old Vintage A. That’s the vibe.

  • 2216 grams. Great super mellow and articulate, SWEET stick attack with dark leanings - this isn’t a Ping Ride. It’s mellow and dark and has a softer, played-in feel and tone. The bell is quite solid and has no problem cutting. 

  • Hit the edge and you get a fantastic straight-up 1960s Big Dark Crash tone.  Perfect for billowing crash riding or just as an accent.

  • This isn’t a heavy ride masquerading as a Crash. 

  • This is a Crash Ride that covers a lot of territory - as the great 60s As do! 

  • No issues. Incredible patina. Great shape for being 60 years old. 

  • This is what the cymbal keeps trying to imitate with their “redesigns” and “vintage homage.” 

  • Fortunately, you can bypass that just get the Real Thing. 

  • This one sounds amazing.  Don’t guess - have a listen.
