SURE you could spend $450 on a new Zildjian 20"....

That's just trying to emulate THIS OLD ZILDJIAN 20"!! 

But why would you, why not get the Original Vintage Zildjian....actually FROM the 1950s.

HAND HAMMERED AND SUPER BUTTERY GOLDEN SOUNDING!! 

Posted for your immense pleasure is this beautiful and slightly dry and dark sounding Vintage Zildjian 1950s BLOCK STAMP 20" Ride that is in Very Good Condition!!  Check out the pictures!  Remarkably there are

NO

cracks on this 60 year old beauty! It's in GREAT SHAPE with a nice patina that has befriended it, a bit of centerhole wear, and a few nicks/flea bites on the edge.  Nothing that affects the TONE of this beauty!! 

Although Block Stamp Zildjians are renown for being super warm and buttery smooth sounding, this particular one has a foot in the dry and dark shadows--just a bit. Of course it does still have that glorious innate Block Stamp smoothness to it, and it's a little bit lower pitched too. A beautiful sounding 20"!  That's what so great about these Vintage 50s Zildjians-each one is unique.

Weighing in at a lovely 2282 grams, this 20" plays like great slightly dry and dark Medium Thin to Medium Ride. The stick attack is prominent and definitely stays on top with this 20". The definition is subtle and chime-like, but this is not a super heavy cymbal at all. The ensuing wash is fairly contained and controlled, this beauty will not muddy up your tone, the wash actually dissipates quickly giving this 50s gem a slightly dry timbre.

Solid stick attack on top. Lower pitched. Fairly dark. Dry and yet with that Block Stamp 50s smoothness.

THAT is this beautiful Vintage Zildjian.

Darker and drier than most of its brethren from the day. An unbelievable sounding 60 year old Zildjian! 

Obviously this Vintage Zildjian 50s BLOCK STAMP 20" Ride is a no brainer for jazz, ballads, blues, trio work, and soul. However the fun does not stop there, its strong stick definition 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 and full ride. 

$450 for the doppelganger???

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

THIS 60 YEAR OLD ZILDJIAN IS THE SOURCE!! And it's a great sounding one!! 

So do yourself a favor and grab this slightly dry and dark 2282 gram Zildjian 1950s Block Stamp 20" right here.

And hang onto it. 60 year old Zildjians are ALWAYS in STYLE!
