  • Here’s a Fantastic sounding darker 50-year-old Zildjian with a terrific DRY and focused stick attack.

  • This beauty has the rare factory stamp “RIDE” on it. 

  • Don’t pay more money for Zildjians trying to re-capture what this Vintage Zildjian does naturally.

  • This particular 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.

  • 2524 grams gives this 20” a perfect Medium Thin to Medium weight with a semi-dry definition. Dry for the 60s. 

  • The bell cuts superbly.  

  • Crash on the edge and you have a wonderful 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 always, in style.
