  • This 22” is one of my favorites! Have a listen - dark, dry, organic and it still plays with a light softness to it and it remains responsive at lower volumes.  

  • You hardly ever actually find these in the wild! Well this one you can listen to so you can buy with confidence.  

  • And it’s perfect.  

  • With a Raw top and a golden, thinly lathed underside, this Italian 22” has a great controlled stick attack but still has a pinch of complex wash!  

  • Juuuuust a pinch! Overall this particular Natural is DRY - but it keeps a softness to it too. It doesn’t play super stiff like some dry rides do.

  • Weighing in at an even 2800 grams this UFIP plays like a Dark, Dry, Medium-Thin to Medium Ride. As you can see, the top is Unlathed and Raw and it has heavy hammer marks-like a Zildjian K...but different. The bottom is finely lathed and allows the wash to open up a little bit and breathe.

  •  Overall this 22” has a very DRY vibe - compliments of that RAW top surface cymbal.

  • The bell is FANTASTIC sounding and very solid!

  • And the controlled nature of this 22” would make a wonderful candidate for rivets if you're looking for a dry sizzle ride.

  • The pitch is Medium Low to Low.

  • Dry stick attack followed by a shadow of  complexity and organic wash that remains very controlled. Medium low in pinch with a dark timbre and earthy vibe. Crashable but still controllable. The wash is medium fast, compliments of the raw surface.

  • That is this hard to find big 22”.  

  • Super clean logos.  Extremely clean.  An incredible cymbal that’s in perfect condition.
