HERE'S A RARE ZILDJIAN YOU DON'T SEE EVERYDAY, UNLESS YOU'RE BERNARD PURDIE...this 20" is perfect for that fantastic, TIGHT and CRISP, ARTICULATE, FOCUSED RIDE PING ATTACK! 

Posted for your immense delight is this Vintage 1970s Hollow Logo Zildjian 20" MINI CUP RIDE that is in EXCELLENT Condition! Check out the pictures! I am thrilled to report that there are

NO

nicks, cracks, dents or dings on this Zildjian. It's in GREAT SHAPE with a wonderful patina that has blanketed it and mellows and focuses it even more.

As many of you may know, Mini Bells are controlled both in volume and in overtones. And this 20" Zildjian is no exception.  And the great patina helps mellow the tone out even further. 

Here's what Zildjian had to say about this cymbal from the 1979 catalog:

"These cymbals have small, shallow cups with sweeping bows, are very high pitched and have virtually no build up of overtones."

That is both factual and accurate.

 And if you check out the 70s Zildjian catalog TONS OF ARTISTS PLAYED A MINI-BELL!!!!

Weighing in at a lovely 3205 grams, this wonder yields an EXTREMELY strong stick attack. That chime-like attack is followed by a semi-bright, VERY TIGHT, MEeeeeellLLLLo00000OOOOw wash that decays very quickly--compliments of the mini bell. If you crash/accent on this Zildjian you get a great lightening crack that's perfect for quick explosions and still gives off a full attack. And you can lay into this 20" and it will never get away from you. Therein lies its beauty. You can swing your ass off on this Zildjian and the stick attack is ALWAYS on top and the overtones VERY FOCUSED and CONTROLLED!!

Obviously this 1970s Zildjian Mini Bell Ride is killer for jazz, blues, trios, ballads, folk, soul, jazz, jazz, and jazz. And it swings beautifully for mellower funk, fusion and even pop and rock. If you have a lot of full rides with big bells, this subtle 20" Mini Bell makes a great alternate smooth ride. Use it ANYTIME you need a great bright and tight ride that is responsive and CONTROLLED.

And you can't even GET these Zildjian Mini Cups anymore!

TONS of Zildjian artists used these beauties in the last 60s and 70s!! This was THE SOUND for a TIGHT and FOCUSED TONE!! 

So do yourself a favor and grab this CRISP and ARTICULATE, Zildjian Hollow Logo 20" MINI CUP RIDE from the 1970s.

And hang onto it!!!
