Posted for your immense pleasure is this Vintage 1960s Zildjian 18" Light Crash Ride that is in EXCELLENT Condition. Check out the pictures. Remarkably there are


cracks on this 50+ year old Zildjian. Just a light patina that has befriended it and a pinch of centerhole wear.  As you can see this one is stamped "CRASH" on the underside, but at 1693 grams it plays more like a Crash Ride or even a small combo Ride.

Old School lathing and craftsmanship on this 50+ year old Zildjian.

And this specific 18" is mellow and smooth sounding. Very nice and musical. Like an old recording. It's well balanced in pitch-NOT too high and bright, it has that 1960s BLUE NOTE Record brightness to it.

Weighing in at a lovely 1693 grams this Vintage Zildjian plays like a Medium Thin to Medium Ride. The tone is smooth and even and definitely has a MELLOW Chime-like attack. It glows without instead of being brash and obtrusive like some cymbals can be. 

And being a smaller 18" size the overtones and volume remain manageable and controlled!

When you CRASH on this beast, all hell breaks loose!! It's very full and plays like a 60s Medium or even Rock Crash. That's the vibe. It's slightly dark as a Crash. 

You can use this 50+ year old Zildjian for whatever your heart's desire. It's a terrific Light Medium Ride for small combo settings or a perfect full crash for Crash Riding! 

There's NO NEED TO SPEND $370 on a Zildjian "Beautiful Baby" Ride! Or even $300 on a "redesigned" Zildjian A Crash Ride!! 

THIS 18" IS THE 60 YEAR OLD ORIGINAL!!!!  It sounds like thousands of recordings from the last 50 decades! 

Stamped "CRASH." 

So do yourself a favor and grab this light and airy with a nice controlled stick attack, 1693 gram Vintage 1960s Zildjian 18" Medium Ride or Crash Ride.
