DARK COMPLEX SEMI-DRY Vintage 1960s ZILDJIAN 22" Ride! EXCD 2774 Gs!

Price: $229.99


Here's a unique sounding 1960s Zildjian 22"!!!!

A really nice and played in sounding Zildjian!!

FAIRLY DRY AND DARK TOO WITH A BIT OF COMPLEXITY!!! A lot of these 60s 22s" are bright and Ping-y...this one is medium to medium LOW and dark!

Why the hell pay $450 for a new-fangled "vintage vibe" AVEDIS Series Zildjian that is just trying to IMITATE THIS!! 

Offered up for your immense delight is this lovely semi-dry and semi-dark Vintage 1960s Zildjian 22" Ride Cymbal that is in EXCELLENT Condition. Check out the pictures! Remarkably there are


nicks, cracks, dents, dings, on this almost 5 decade old 22". It's in GREAT SHAPE with a wonderful patina that has befriended it and a pinch of centerhole wear.  Typical light wear for an almost 60 year old cymbal.

And it ain't easy to find a big 60s Zildjian in good condition. Most of them succumbed to the swings of 2Bs in the 80s. How this one endured, I have no clue.

This particular 22" tapers down to a fairly medium thin edge too giving it a bit of crashability! 

Weighing in at a glorious 2774 grams this Vintage Zildjian plays like a Classic Medium Thin to Medium DARK and DRY Ride. The attack is STRONG and the wash has a subtle "AAAAAAHHHHHH"!!! It plays like a great FOCUSED 60s 22". Softer and much darker than an older Ping Ride, but more focused and with better definition than a thinner Trans stamp ride. A very musical 22". Absolutely GORGEOUS Tone!!!

The bell measures 5.5" and is remarkably SOLID. Definitely strong enough for "the latin thing", and even blues, rock and funk. The overall pitch of this Vintage Zildjian is MEDIUM LOW for a cymbal with this strong definition.

This Vintage Zildjian 60s 22" Ride is a workhorse cymbal. PERFECT for classic rock, pop, country, funk, fusion, R&B, definitely soul, blues, big band, swing, live situations and anytime you need a well balanced 60s Zildjian 22".

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


Why the hell spend $450 plus dollars on a modern "vintage vibe" Zildjian when you can have this 50 year old beauty for HALF the price?!!

NO need to get a "pre-aged" whatever re-design!

This is the ORIGINAL 22"!

So do yourself a favor and grab this dry and semi-dry and low and DARK, 2774 gram Vintage Zildjian 22" Ride. And hang onto it.

Vintage As are ALWAYS in style. Especially a dark 22".
