  • Call The Smithsonian!  ALL 20 RIVETS STILL INTACT on a Vintage Zildjian Factory Swish Knocker!

  • I mean that right there is nearly impossible to find!

  • Usually some drunk uncle knocked at least a few rivets out while playing “War Pigs” in the garage at 1 AM on his birthday!  

  • It’s incredible this one survived!!  

  • Vintage Zildjian 22” FACTORY SWISH KNOCKER in incredible condition with ALL Vintage Rivets intact.

  • And you can hear this Rare Beauty so you can buy with confidence!

  • Zildjian described the Swish Knocker as:
    "Unique stick definition for funky ride beat with roaring overtones and sizzle effect."

  • And that is accurate.  This particular 22” ROARS - 1970s Billy Cobham vibes.  But it still has a fantastic stick attack for the alternate Mel Lewis Swish Ride tone.

  • Weighing in at a healthy 2932 grams, this HUGE Vintage Zildjian Swish Knocker plays like a BIG VINTAGE China Swish and provides the perfect larger than life 22" exotic GONG-like China ROAR!

  • This is THE SOUND!

  • As a ride, this Swish has a great CONTROLLED stick attack (compliments of the heavier constitution) makes a terrific china, effect cymbal, or alternate ride!  

  • The cool thing about this Rare Zildjian 22" Swish Knocker is that you can use it on anything you want. Many jazz, swing, and big band enthusiasts like them because they make great alternate rides, effects, and because they're a throw back to the old chinese cymbals on contraption sets.

  • However this cymbal is certainly not limited to those genres. Its monstrous size and aggressive attack makes it quite capable in louder rock, pop, funk, fusion, world music, and soul settings. Use it ANYTIME you need a great sounding Old School HUGE Zildjian 22" Swish ROAR!

  • Theres nothing like the Original Vintage Swish Knocker with ALL RIVETS - the way it was meant to be.

  • Playable. Collectible. Damn near impossible to find these days.
