I'll keep this one simple...

This things is BRAIN BLADE FOR DAYS!! 

Posted for for your pleasure is ULTRA RARE, GLORIOUSLY DARK SOUNDING, ACTUALLY HAND HAMMERED Vintage Zildjian BLOCK STAMP LOGO 24" Ride Cymbal that is from the mid 1950s and is in EXCELLENT Condition! Check out the pictures!!

Call the Smithsonian!! 

Because this cymbal is truly the embodiment of the Golden Age of American Music, and The Gilded Age of Cymbalmaking.

You ever see those black and white photos from the Zildjian factory with a group of cymbalsmiths posing for their picture and there's a panoply of HUGE pies leaning against the wall. Well...

THIS IS THE CYMBAL LEANING AGAINST THE WALL!! THE BIG ONE! THE ONE YOU SEE IN THE PICTURES WITH JO JONES AND BUDDY RICH ETC! 

Remarkably, this 65 YEAR OLD  Zildjian has NO cracks or keyholing. It's in Great Condition with a wonderful chocolate brown 6 decade old patina that has befriended it and some typical light edge wear. In true EARLY Vintage Zildjian fashion the center hole measures just under .5", just like those famous 1940s Trans Stamps! 

It's TRULY HAND HAMMERED SO THE SURFACE OF THE CYMBAL IS VERY WAVY! YOU CAN TELL IT'S COMPLETELY HAND CRAFTED!! 

Check out the lathing....ooooooo000000000OOOOOOOOOOOOLD SCHOOL Zildjian.

This ain't no AVEDIS "VINTAGE VIBE" Zildjian! This is THE REAL DEAL!! 

And in a 2 FOOT DARK RIDE!!

The weight is 4030 grams. And the edges of this 24" BLUR when played! You'll be hard pressed to find a nicer, straight up classier sounding Zildjian!

This Vintage Block Stamp Zildjian 24" has a gorgeous medium low pitched chime-like attack that is followed by a gloriously dark, extremely warm, LUSH buttery WASH!!

The overall vibe of this 24" is warm, DARK and mellooooooooooo000000OOOOOW. The bell is medium low pitch and strong---which provides a great contrast to the subtle, warm playing field.

The stick attack is chime-like, low pitched, and still SOFT and subtle. 

The best part about this 24" Zildjian is that with such a generous playing field, the tone changes quite a bit depending on WHERE you place your stick. And it's Hand Hammered so it very musical.  The bell is solid. Right below the bell is still fairly dry. As you migrate out to the plain (and what a plain it is) the wash starts to open up. And at the outer limits of this 24" Beast, the clouds part and it starts to rain.

Dark, low pitched, warm, wonderfully LUSH. Exceptionally mellow. The edges blur - which is incredible itself because this beauty is a 24". And all in a 60+ year old Block Logo 24"!!

This is a phenomenal piece. And this 24" will easily go 12 rounds with ANY Zildjian Istanbul K.

Why the hell pay $560 for a machine made big box store Zildjian?????

This RARE 1950s Zildjian Block Logo 24" Cymbal will ONLY increase in value as the seasons pass. This IS History. So hang onto it an keep it in great condition.
