Why pay $365 for some regular-ass Zildjian K when you can actually play a super RARE and Collectible Zildjian!!

Posted for your immense pleasure is this UNIQUE, ULTRA DRY Zildjian 20" K Custom -ish DRY LIGHT VIBE PROTOTYPE SIZZLE Ride that is in absolutely FANTASTIC Condition. Check out the pictures! I am thrilled to report that there are

NO

nicks, cracks, dents, or dings on this raw beauty, it's in GREAT SHAPE!!!!!  This 20" actually plays like a Dry Light Ride or a K Custom Peter Erskine Left Side LARGE BELL SIZZLE Ride!!

BUT IT WAS MADE FOR MARVIN!!

 And it has those HUGE GOLF BALL HAMMERINGS AND IS RAW - LIKE A ZILDJIAN EARTH RIDE!!

 It's like the A Pocket Hats....but NO...it's RAW, and in a 20"!!

Weighing in at a lovely 2597 grams this 20" Prototype Sizzle Dry Light plays like an extremely DRY Thin to Medium-Thin Ride. As you can see, this cymbal is completely Raw and UNLATHED on the top and the bottom, and has been heavily hammered with a giant hammer. The hammerings are Golf Ball sized. This Prototype is ALL ABOUT DEFINITION. The wash is controlled, however it still supplies a very subtle "AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH" rumble underneath the initial attack. The Lagre Bell is very strong and projects above the wash. It is unquestionably one of the driest K cymbals in the catalogue, or actually NOT in the catalog. The tone is dark and organic and very dry. 

As you can see this Dry Light is outfitted with 2 rivets, aligning it with the Left Side Ride or the Armand Ride.  Take them out for increased definition or leave them in for that glorious Rain On The Roof vibe.

When you crash on on this Prototype you can get a great nasty dry accent punch that explodes and then quickly evaporates.  

With such a organic dry tone, this cymbal is a natural choice for jazz and blues, however it's not limited to these genres. If you already own a bright or full ride, this K Dry Light will round out your arsenal of sounds whether it's funk, fusion, country, pop, ballads, breakbeats and loops, R&B,soul and even rock. Use it anytime you need an Ultra DRY K tone that's organic and you can crash/accent on.

Why the hell get some big box store Zildjian K Ride??

THIS UNIQUE Prototype is in Fantastic Shape!! And NOTHING sounds like this!

So do yourself a favor and grab this UNIQUE, MARVIN "SMITTY" SMITH #25 Zildjian K Custom Vibe 20" DRY LIGHT PROTOTYPE Ride Sizzle in TERRIFIC condition!!!
