  • 22” Hand Hammered BIG BELLED 60-year-old Vintage Zildjian with a great stick attack and Medium Light complex wash.

  • Take a look at the pictures on this gorgeous 1950s Zildjian, it’s heavily Hand Hammered all over the place. The surface and plane of this cymbal is very wavy - someone showed this particular 22” a lot of hand-hammered love at the Zildjian factory. 

  • Weighing in at a gorgeous 2639 grams this 22” plays like a Light Medium Thin to Medium Ride.

  • The Hand Hammering is not just beautiful to look at, it’s beautiful to hear!  This 22” has a classic big 22” A complex and airy tone. The profile is fairly steep and curved giving it a medium broad spread.

  • Very thin, tapered edge.

  • At 2639 grams it’s far from heavy but has plenty of heft to give off a terrific and penetrating stick attack that cuts well out front. Sounds like it’s the 1950s.

  • The bell measures a generous 6” and even resembles a big crash vibe - rounded over and full. It no doubt contributes to the complexity as well. Very solid snd cutting - especially for a 1950s Zildjian.

  • Stunning craftsmanship with no issues.  It’s been making music for 6 decades and has many more in it.

  • Truly Hand Hammered 22” with much more character than a big box store “vintage re-issue” whatever.

  • The Real Deal.
