  • I love 22s” from this era. They’re harder to find but worth the search. They’re darker and smoother and have a fullness to them that is also a much more mellow and lower-pitched than their smaller 20” brothers.

  • And that is exactly the case with this Vintage Zildjian 1960s 22”. 

  • What’s fascinating about this particular 60s 22” is that it is wonderfully DARK and low pitched. Darker than most at this weight for sure. 

  • The bell measures a generous 6” snd supplies a fantastic DING tone.

  • 3078 grams gives it enough meat to punch through in an amplified setting but again it’s MUCH darker than a Ping Ride or even a Medium. 

  • This is the perfect Classic Rock 60s Zildjian. It sounds like it was pulled off a summer stage from 1967. That’s the vibe.  

  • However take a listen! This makes a killer jazz ride as well - its strong attack and dark timbre make a beauty for swinging on! Perfect for blues and funk too. 

  • Crash on it for a thunderous full wash tone. 

  • Great shape. Typical light surface wear.

  • A Zildjian 22” A costs over $400  today.

  • I’m not kidding.

  • Play the 50-year-old 1960s Original for LESS money. It’s a hell of a lot more fun too! 

  • Vintage Zildjian As are always in style.
