  • No need to shell out $680 for a re-creation “vintage homage” Zildjian cymbal.  

  • Just get the real one that is actually Hand Hammered and was forged when “Kind Of Blue” was being recorded.  Literally.  

  • Beautiful Vintage Zildjian 1950s 22” Hand Hammered Light Complex Ride is amazing condition.  Stunning Hand Hammering with very smooth lathing and a chocolate brown patina.  
  • This 22” actually sounds like it has rivets in it - even though it doesn’t. It’s light with a delicate, whispy airy tone. 

  • This 60-year-old 22” has a nice, subtle umbrella-shaped profile that gives it a bit more spread than your average 22” Ride and the edges are smooth and taper down. 

  • With a 2662 gram weight it lives in the Thin Ride Light Complex Ride range, it has a soft, mellow semi-dry attack that is followed by a delicate but lively, fairly complex and organic wash - that’s the Hand Hammering talking.  

  • 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.

  • When you open up on it and crash, it unleashes a torrent of Vintage Crash tone but in a Massive 22”! And the spread is broad.  

  • Fantastic 5.5” bell is that is solid for a thinner cymbal. 

  • This is an incredibly versatile 22” - you don’t find a cymbal that can go from 1 - 10 and remain musical often - although I would not slam on it because it is thinner. 

  • Amazing shape.  Tell tale Hand Hammered waviness on the plain. 

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

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

  • Just get the actually Hand Hammered real one.
