  • This is a fascinating Vintage 1960s 22” - it’s nowhere near your typical Zildjian 60s Ping Ride or Medium Ride. This 22” plays like a Semi-Dry Medium Light Ride. 

  • It crashes like a HUGE FULL Crash Ride, but has a terrific Semi-Dry stick attack that has a light airiness to it. 
  • With a 2766 gram weight it lives in the Medium Thin Ride or Crash Ride range for a 22”, but it has a light, mellow  attack that is followed by a soft and subtle, slightly complex wash.

  • Beautiful 1960s super fine lathing on the underside. Thin edges. 
  • 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 1960s Medium Crash tone - perfect as a big 60s Crash, or great for Crash accents when you‘re playing at lower volumes and just need a punch.

  • Fantastic  6” bell is incredible for rock, but pull out to the plain and you have one hell of a great Light Jazz or Blues Ride.

  • Again, this is an incredibly versatile 22” - you don’t find a cymbal that can go from 1 - 10 and remain musical often. 
  • Great shape. No issues. Beautiful 50 year old golden patina.   Mellowed. Dried. 

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