  • Early nearly 30 year old Zildjian K Custom Medium Ride in the generous-sized 22”.  

  • Don’t spend $530 on a stock photo and a guess.  Hell this beauty is one of the EARLY K Custom Mediums with a different hammering and lathing. 

  • Befriended by Father Time, this 22” K Custom is one of the drier ones you will hear.  The last 3 decades have mellowed and aged it beautifully. 

  • 2764 grams - plays like a Dry Medium Thin to Medium. Primed for 6 rivets in the classic vintage configuration , outfitted with four. Controlled with a subtle, light wash. 

  • For this series, this 2764 gram 22” K Custom is a fantastic blend of strong stick attack mixed with a gorgeous dark and slightly complex tone. 

  • These Early K Customs have a different tone. 

  • Famously Lathed top, unlathed Brilliant finish underside, and that gives this K Custom Medium a terrific stick attack.  Half lathed and half unlathed. A perfect balance of attack and wash. 

  • Being the 22” this is cymbal is much darker and lower pitched than the smaller 20” brother.  These 22s” are not that easy to find.

  • Extremely solid and cutting Bell that had no problem cutting through a mix. 

  • If you want a K that has a terrific cutting attack but remains dark and smooth with a light earthy-ness, here you are. 

  • No issues.  Aged magnificently over 30 years.  No need to spend $530 on a big box store Zildjian and then wait 30 years for it to mellow.
