  • Here’s a fantastic sounding DARK 50+ year-old Zildjian with a terrific DRY and focused stick attack. The particular beauty has a semi-dark shimmer and it makes a great dark RINGO wash crash. 

  • Check out the craftsmanship on this one - it’s different than most. Ball peen styled hammering on the underside. 

  • Don’t pay more money for a guess at a Zildjian trying to re-capture what this Vintage Zildjian does naturally, have a listen and buy with confidence.  

  • This 1960s 20” has a beautiful, golden patina that gives this Zildjian a distinct, pronounced DARKER chime-like definition and attack but it is mellower than big box store new models.  Hell it’s from the 1960s. It’s aged half a century. 

  • After 50 years of aging, it projects but is not harsh sounding or shrill as modern Zildjians can be. The patina mellows and focuses the overtones beautifully to deliver a pronounced stick articulation that sounds like it was plucked off a 1960s recording.

  • 2491 grams gives this 20” a perfect Medium Thin to Medium weight with a semi-dry definition. Dry for the 60s and medium dark. It’s smooth and has an even, balanced tone.  

  • The bell cuts well but is not overbearing, giving this 20” a great control. 

  • Crash on the edge and you have a wonderful deep and dark HIGE CRASH - wall of white noise perfect for Classic Rock and all-around ruckus-making.

  • This is a fantastic, versatile 1960s Zildjian that is great for any style of music. It’s the tone that has delivered all the hits dating back the last 50 years.

  • Quiet to loud settings. No issues. Amazing patina. 

  • Use this Zildjian for any style at all! Vintage As are always in demand and this is one is smooth with a medium dark shimmer to it.
