Here's a GREAT SOUNDING ACTUALLY HAND HAMMERED 1950s Zildjian 22"!!!!  

It's AGED 60+ years!! This is one of the NICEST sounding Vintage 22s" you'l hear!

SURE you could spend $430 on a new fangled "vintage vibe" Zildjian AVEDIS Series 22" Ride. That of course is JUST TRYING TO IMITATE THIS 22"!!

But why not just get THE ORIGINAL?!! FOR A HELL OF A LOT LESS MONEY TOO!

And this 22" is ACTUALLY HAND HAMMERED!! THE SURFACE IS WAVY LIKE THE ZILDJIANS FROM 60 and 70 YEARS AGO! 

Offered up for your immense delight is this lovely, beautifully aged, Vintage 1950s Zildjian 22" Ride Cymbal that is in EXCELLENT Condition. Check out the pictures! Remarkably there are

NO

cracks on this almost 6 decade old 22". It's in GREAT SHAPE with a light patina that has befriended it! 

This particular 22" is overall Semi-Dry with a gorgeous complexity!  And it's Thin to Medium Thin in constitution too.

Weighing in at a lovely 2686 grams this Vintage Zildjian plays like a SOFTER, super played-in, Classic Medium Thin Ride. The initial stick attack is prominent and fairly dry sounding (considering its thinner weight), and the ensuing wash has a subtle "AAAAAAHHHHHH" to it!!! It plays like a great MELLOW 50s 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" with both highs and lows present! AND the wash is overall VERY controlled and dissipates quickly for a HUGE 22"! And being only 2686 grams, there is a terrific complexity that floats about---it's just reined in and controlled compliments of that gorgeous patina.

Absolutely GORGEOUS Tone!!! Again, this is one of the finest 22s" you'll come across!

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.

And this 22" would be a great candidate for rivets if you're so inclined, although it sounds amazing as is.

It has a subtle rivets vibe naturally!!!  Very hard to find a 60 year old Hand Hammered Zildjian this thin in great shape!! 

This Vintage Zildjian 50s 22" Ride is a workhorse cymbal. PERFECT for jazz, ballads, mellow gigs, pop, country, funk, fusion, R&B, definitely soul, blues, big band, swing, live situations and anytime you need a well balanced, semi-dry 50s Zildjian 22".

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

THIS 60+ YEAR OLD ZILDJIAN IS THE SOURCE!!

There's NO NEED TO SPEND $430 ON A MODERN ZILDJIAN THAT IS JUST TRYING TO IMITATE THIS ORIGINAL!!!!

So do yourself a favor and grab this super smooth and mellooooooooo0000OOOOOoooow, semi-dry, 1950s only 2686 gram Zildjian 22" Ride.

And hang onto it. Vintage As are ALWAYS in style.
