  • Absolutely glorious big and MELLOW nearly 60 year old 22” SIZZLE with ALL 6 RIVETS like it’s 1963 at Blue Note Records. 

  • A 22” at only 2540 grams. It plays like a Block Stamp logo 50s Zildjian - has that warmth and mellowness to it but with a great straight up stick definition.

  • Have a listen! 

  • It is one of the nicest sounding 22s” Sizzles you will hear from the 1960s because it’s the perfect blend of semi-dry, warm and mellow. That deep golden patina dries it out perfectly.  

  • With a 2540 gram weight it lives in the Thin Ride to Medium Thin Crash range for a 22”, but it has a light, mellow semi-dry attack that is followed by a soft and subtle, fairly complex Vintage Sizzle wash - compliments of all 8 rivets.  Very old school and familiar to the ears! 

  • 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.

  • Semi-dark, light and glowing, but with a pronounced attack. 

  • When you open up on it and crash, it unleashes a torrent of 1960s thin Crash tone but in a Massive 22”! 

  •  The perfect huge 1960s 22” Crash, or great for Crash accents when you‘re riding at lower volumes and just need a punch.

  • Fantastic 5” bell is that is solid for such a thin cymbal. 

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

  • Fantastic condition with no issues. 

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

  • Aged 60 years. It’s incredible. 

  • Don’t pay more for a modern “vintage homage” cymbal masquerading as old timey. 

  • Just get the actually Hand Hammered real one.
