  • A Vintage Zildjian 20” DARK HAND HAMMERED Sizzle that has aged 60 years is a damn fun cymbal to play!

  • And that is exactly what we have right here.

  • This particular 20” inhabits the Goldilocks zone of the perfect balance between stick definition and glorious, subtle light and lively Hand Hammered wash.  This one has a little bit of complex shimmer on top but overall it’s darker and lower pitched than most 20s”.  It is mellowed by a 6-decade old patina. It sounds like it was plucked right off a Columbia Jazz Record.

  • 2356 grams ensures a terrific stick attack - especially for a Sizzle Ride. But this ain’t no Ping Ride. It’s the cymbal you hear on myriad recordings. 

  • Definitely darker overtones on this beauty with a chime-like stick attack that is lower pitched. 

  • Could easily pass for a 22”. 

  • Stunning Vintage Zildjian Hand Hammering 

  • Primed for 6 rivets in the vintage configuration and currently outfitted with 4 vintage rivets. Adjust to your liking but it sounds great exactly where it is. I would leave it. 

  • Excellent condition, no issues. Gorgeous craftsmanship. 

  • Glorious Real Deal 1950s Sizzle that swims in darker waters and has been making music for 60 years. 

  • Why spend MORE on the imposters?

  • Get this great attack Sizzle and grow old with it.

  • Perfect for any style of music.
