  • This is a fascinating Vintage 1960s 22” - it’s nowhere near your typical Zildjian 60s Ping Ride or Rock Ride. This 22” plays like a true LIGHT RIDE or massive MEDIUM THIN CRASH RIDE. 

  • The profile looks like a 22” CRASH - that’s the vibe. 

  • Extremely Full Crash Ride - like something off the stage at WOODSTOCK. Perfect for the 1960s tone! But play it lightly and it has a dancing, airy complexity that percolates. 

  • Classic 1960s Zildjian lathing. It has a bit more airiness and complexity than the later era models. 

  • With a THIN 2496 gram weight it lives in the Thin Ride to Thin Crash Ride range for a 22”, but it has a light, mellow semi-bright attack that is followed by a soft and subtle, fairly complex wash.

  • What’s amazing is that you can play this big 22” very, very lightly and softly and it still sings.  The dynamic range on this one is amazing.

  • Extremely well balanced with light leanings. 

  • When you open up on it and crash, it unleashes a torrent of 1960s Medium Thin Crash tone - perfect as a big 60s Crash, or great for Crash accents when you‘re playing at lower volumes and just need a punch.

  • Fantastic 6” bell is incredible for rock, but pull out to the plain and you have one hell of a great Light Jazz or Blues Ride.

  • Again, this is an incredibly versatile 22” - you don’t find a cymbal that can go from 1 - 10 and remain musical often. 

  • Terrific shape.  No issues. Gorgeous half-century old golden patina and it’s in great shape for being that old! 

  • Wonderfully versatile 22” from the golden age of both rock and jazz.
