  • Here's a fantastic-sounding, very hard-to-find 50-year-old Vintage Zildjian FACTORY Sizzle Ride in Amazing Condition. 

  • What's great about this one, in particular, is that for a Sizzle with 6 rivets, you still get a terrific stick-attack, it can even be your main Rides like many Jazz and Classic recordings from the 50s and 60s. 

  • The straight-up definition is great. 

  • Much of that great attack is compliments of the 3080-gram weight - which gives this Sizzle a Medium quality, that is how it plays, but with the glow of 6 rivets.  

  • Being the larger 22”, it’s darker and lower-pitched than its 20” brothers.  And the playing field is generous and the bell piercing. 

  • It is currently outfitted with all 6 old-timey rivets (I mean OLD-TIMEY, and I believe them to be the original Zildjian rivets) 

  • They've been in for decades and I would leave all of them in because this cymbal sings as is. Again, I think they’re factory, regardless they’re old. 

  • Incredible stick definition. The great attack that cuts through a mix.  Stunning, glowing warm 1960s Zildjian A tone followed by the light glow of 6 old school rivets. 

  • Extremely clean for being 50 years old.  Great patina.  No issues.  

  • This is the REAL DEAL tone. Don’t pay more money for the “vintage vibe” stuff. 

  • It’s more inspiring to play the original.
