HERE'S ONE OF THE RAREST ZILDJIANS I'VE SEEN!! 

 
AN EARLY 1950s BLOCK STAMP FACTORY INK "MEDIUM BOP" RIDE!! 
 
I've only seen a handful of "Bop" Zildjians ever, and never a Block Stamp one!! nd the edges of this beauty are THIN!

$539.99! That is how much a new Zildjian K Constantinople will set you back.....

Why not get an ORIGINAL, ULTRA RARE 60 year old Hand Hammered Zildjian?!!

Posted for your immense pleasure is this fairly Dark & DRY sounding RARE Vintage Zildjian 1950s BLOCK STAMP 22" factory stamped MEDIUM BOP Ride that is in Very Good Condition!!  Check out the pictures!  Remarkably there are

NO

nicks, cracks, dents, or dings on this 60 year old beauty.  It's in GREAT SHAPE with a glorious patina that has befriended it and some surface scratching - mostly on the bell. 

What I dig about this specific 22" is that it has a lot more ATTACK than many other Block Logo 50s Rides and this one is a bit more DRY thanks to that amazing patina!  The factory black ink stamp "Medium Bop" has faded but is still visible. 

The Bop Ride is one of the rarest vintage Zildjian, I've only had a few in the many years I've been selling cymbals, and I've never had a 22" before!!!

Weighing in at a lovely 2732 grams, this 22" plays like great Medium Thin Ride----it's DRY yet supersmooth Vintage Zildjian 50s Ride with terrific Stick Attack. Really, really GREAT!!  It sounds like an old Blue Note record. Classic Vintage Zildjian Hand Hammered wash....but still with a nice woody attack.

The bell is strong too.

And it'd be a great candidate for rivets if you're so inclined.

The edges are VERY thin so it's remarkably crushable hen you lay into it and the edges blur! 

Obviously this dry sounding Vintage Zildjian 50s BLOCK STAMP 22" Medium Bop Ride is a no brainer for jazz, ballads, blues, trio work, and soul. However the fun does not stop there, its warm wash and smooth vintage vibe will be a welcomed addition for any funk, fusion, folk, indie rock, or mellow pop/rock rig. It makes a great foil for a bright or dry ride.  

If you want a vintage sound, then go to the source.

THIS 60 YEAR OLD ZILDJIAN IS THE SOURCE!!

Why the hell pay $480 for a new-fangled "vintage homage" AVEDIS Series??

So do yourself a favor and grab this beautiful and exceptionally RARE, Zildjian 1950s Block Stamp 22" factory ink Medium Bop Ride right here. And hang onto it.
