  • This is one of the driest, darkest Zildjian 22s” you will hear! 

  • This is an incredible sounding Vintage 1960s 22” - it’s nowhere near your typical Zildjian 60s Ping Ride or Medium Ride. It’s much darker and drier than nearly any Vintage Zildjian I’ve heard. 

  • 2734 grams - absolutely amazing straight up stick attack with a very quick decay.  Have a listen! 

  • With this gram weight it plays like a Medium Thin Dark Ride or Dry Crash Ride. The metal has aged over 50 years and it feels soft and very played it. 

  • Lower profile gives this brooding beauty a low pitch and overall very dark overtones. 

  • It’s even slightly bendable - which is damn near impossible to find on a 1960s Zildjian in this weight range.  It’s really mellowed and aged.  

  • 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 very dark and super low-pitched crash! But what’s unique about this one - that crash tone is DRY! Very organic and dry.  That’s almost impossible to find. 

  • Great for Crash accents when you‘re riding at lower volumes and just need a punch.

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

  • Played-in but no real issues. One hell of an amazing patina! Very dark. Some surface wear and tape residue on the underside - I wouldn’t touch a thing. This 22” sounds anointed. 

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

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

  • This is one of the nicest dark, dry Real Deal Zildjians you’ll hear.
