WHAT THE HELL IS THIS??!!! The FIRST PING RIDE FROM THE GARDEN OF EDEN??

 

A 1960s ZILDJIAN "HEAVY PING" RIDE!! 

 

I've NEVER SEEN A "PING" LOGO on a 1960s stamp Zildjian!! 

And I sure have never seem a "HEAVY PING!" Which indeed this 18" is at 1992 grams! Most 18" Ping Rides are about 100-200  grams lighter. 

Hell Zildjian hasn't even made an 18" PING Ride in decades!! And this thing is pretty damn CLEAN TOO!

Posted for your immense pleasure is this ULTRA RARE Vintage 1960s Zildjian 18" FACTORY STAMPED "HEAVY PING" that is in INCREDIBLE Condition. Check out the pictures. I am happy to report that there are 

NO 

nicks, cracks, or dents on this Beast!!! It's in GREAT SHAPE with a very light patina that has befriended it! The stamps are bold and overall this 18" is pretty damn clean! 

Check out the golden 60s style lathing. The underside is VERY FINE. 

This would be a fantastic addition to ANY 1960s or early 1970s drum set! 

 

THIS ZILDJIAN ALL THE FOCUS YOU'D EXPECT FROM A PING RIDE WITH THE CONTROL OF AN 18"!!!! BUT THEN ADD A LITTLE MORE CHIME-LIKE ATTACK AND PROJECTION BECAUSE THIS IS A "HEAVY." AND BEEF UP THAT BELL TOO!!

 

 

 This beauty is almost like an 18" DEEP RIDE!   That's the vibe!! 

 

Weighing in at a ROBUST 1992 grams, this 18" has a HEAVY constitution - exactly what you would expect from a HEAVY Zildjian PING. The attack is chime-like and aggressive and remarkably PING-Y! The tone is fairly DARK actually, and focused. The pitch is medium low and it cuts superbly with both high and low overtones present.

 HOWEVER it is not grating as some Ping rides tend to be. The wash is more controlled, thanks to that 18" diameter. The bell is VERY SOLID for an 18" and cuts extremely well without being hulking!  

And I'm happy to say that this 18" PING makes a fantastic sounding main ride! It projects exceptionally well for an 18" and is fairly dark and lower pitched! 

Zildjian doesn't make ANYTHING like this today! 

This Vintage 60s Zildjian 18" HEAVY Ping Ride is a no brainer for rock, definitely classic rock, pop, big blues, punk, funk, fusion, country, heavier playing, and anytime you need a fairly dark, chime-like Vintage Zildjian 60s cutting attack that has some control too!  

AND I'VE NEVER SEEN A 1960s STAMPED HEAVY PING OR ANY PING FOR THAT MATTER!!  

So do yourself a favor and grab this ULTRA RARE and versatile 1992 gram Vintage 60s Zildjian 18" Factory Stamped "HEAVY PING" Ride. 

And play it with that 60s or 70s kit!! NO ONE HAS THIS!
