  • Looking for a fairly Dry 22” with a pinch of Complex warm sizzle? 

  • GET THIS! 

  • Because it sounds incredible! This particular 22” Left Side K has a bit more body to it than most.  There’s a light airiness to this one.  

  • This is the Zildjian you wish they still made, the 22” size makes it lower and much darker in tone. Overall it plays softer and smoother than any 20” K Left Side could dream. 

  • Gorgeous and no longer made BIG 22” Zildjian K Custom Left Side Sizzle Ride.

  • Weighs a lovely 2596  grams giving it a perfect Medium Thin play and weight.  

  • Sometimes these K Customs take a lot to get them to move - that is not at all the case with this beauty.  It opens up with ease. 

  • Zildjian describes their K Left Side as:
    “Developed by clinician and session great Peter Erskine, it is dark and dry as desert nightfall. Its deliberately distressed finish and articulate, full-bodied stick definition make this cymbal an essential part of any setup whether as your main ride or as a side ride.  Its dark, controlled tone helps to stick patterns come across cleanly. Three Rivets add subtle, lingering sustained to con keeping accidents and crashes.”

  • Now imagine that in the rarer 22” size. 

  • See! It really is nice. 

  • This K Custom has a DRY stick attack but it’s far from dead. It has more subtle body and warm than the Dry Rides and the smaller 20” version and even the other 22s”. 

  • 3 brass cluster rivets supply the lightest hint of afterglow sizzle - it is very subtle and honors a bit of that Old School vintage throwback sound.

  • Again, this particular one has a lovely hint of warmth and body for the series.  Gorgeous. 

  • If you want a stick attack, but want it dark and to have a great dynamic range and be responsive, this is a fantastic choice!!

  • Much thinner, darker, and more responsive than the straight-up K Custom Dry Ride.  It's a very different cymbal. Much easier to crash. 

  • Clean. Strong logos. Every 22” in this series I’ve ever seen has subtle waves on the edge as this one does.  All of the 22s” have it. 

  • Aged and mellowed 16 years. 

  • A killer sounding 22” K Custom that I wish Zildjian still made.
