THE PERFECT CLASSIC ROCK Vintage 1960s Zildjian 20" Ride! 2724 Gs! EX

Price: $129.99


$284.95!! That's how much a new Zildjian 20" Ping or Rock Ride will set you back! And that's the Guaranteed Lowest Price too!!

Why the hell would anyone shell out that much money when you can actually have the Vintage Zildjian 60s Ride for a hell of a lot less?? Seriously. Brand new cymbals LOOK nice under, but they ain't got that Vintage Zildjian tone. 

This specific Zildjian has a wonderfully well-balanced tone. Not too bright and ping-y and not too dark and washy.  Just right!!!

The 50 year old patina on this Zildjian DRIES the tone out beautifully!! The attack is much more prominent!

Posted for your immense pleasure is this Vintage 1960s Zildjian  20" Ride that is in EXCELLENT Condition. Check out the pictures. I am happy to report that there are


nicks dents, dings, or cracks on this 40 + year old gem!  It's in GREAT SHAPE with a fantastic patina that has covered it and a bit of centerhole wear!!!

This Zildjian dates back to the 60s and it sounds like it!!  It has that inimitable Classic Rock tone-you know the one without metronomes! No sound replacement. No protools. THAT tone. 

Weighing in at a healthy 2724 grams, this 20" has a Medium to medium heavy constitution. The attack is prominent (compliments of the weight and the super dark patina) but not overpowering, and the ensuing wash is medium full but of course still controlled because it's aged for 50 years.  The tone is semi-dark....darker than you might expect with that weight.   The pitch is medium to medium low, for a heavier cymbal. The bell is solid and cuts extremely well.

What I dig about this specific 60s Zildjian is that it has no harshness to it. It is MUCH more subtle than a modern Guitar Center gobbled up Zildjian Ping Ride. It is overall considerably more musical sounding.

Classic smooth Vintage Zildjian 60s Ride tone!!! AND FAIRLY DRY and focused!!

This Vintage 60s Zildjian 20" Ride is a no brainer for rock, definitely classic rock, pop, big blues, punk, funk, fusion, country, heavier playing, and anytime you need a great balanced Vintage Zildjian 60s cutting tone.

$285 for the modern one?  

Get the original from the 60s! 

So do yourself a favor and grab this 2724 gram, fairly DRY Vintage 1960s Zildjian 20" Ride.

And hang onto it.
