Here's an INSANELY RARE ZILDJIAN!!! 

 This may very well have been a CUSTOM ORDER from 1985! Hell I've never seen another Factory Stamped "Medium Ride" 19"! Maybe it was in the catalog for the month of October in 1986 or something. 

And what's great about this specific Zildjian is that it's very, very SMOOTH and crashable - especially for a "Medium." 

It has that famously bright 80s Zildjian tone - BUT it's bright AND SMOOTH.  It's a PERFECT Left Side Crash Ride or controlled, small main ride for lower volume settings! 

This 19" is actually a bit more tight and controlled sounding-it doesn't  ring all over hell. That's the beauty of the smaller sized 19" - great definition but NOT over powering. 

Posted for your immense pleasure is this ULTRA RARE 1980s  Zildjian 19" MEDIUM Ride that is FACTORY STAMPED "MEDIUM RIDE" and is in Excellent Condition!! Check out the pictures! I am thrilled to report that there are 

NO

nicks or cracks on this 18" Zildjian. It's in GREAT SHAPE with a lovely patina that has embraced it and mellows it out.  

The "Medium Ride" stamp is BOLD! 

Weighing in at a lovely 1916 grams this RARE 19" Medium Ride plays like (not surprisingly)....a very MELLOW Medium Ride. This 19" has a bright attack followed by a medium wash that is very smooth, has presence, but is NOT over powering. And the bell is strong for an 19".  And again, being an 19" it has a more controlled vibe than its ubiquitous larger big brother---perfect for smaller venues or settings where you need definition but don't want your ride cymbal to eat up the rest of your kit. 

When you lay into it and crash it, it plays like a mellower Crash Ride. It's perfect for accents and punches without being overbearing. 

 

Medium. SMOOTH.  Bright. Tight. Controlled. Strong stick attack. Balanced. Wonderfully crashable! Classic 80s semi-complexity. 

There ya' go! 

This Zildjian Medium Ride is a workhorse cymbal--rock, pop, country, funk, fusion, punk, gospel, reggae, hip-hop, singer/songwriter gigs, session work. This 19" A Medium is versatile. And it's a terrific choice for LIVE situations as a Crash Ride or smaller, controlled ride! 

And hell, I don't think I have EVER encountered another one of these!! And I even lived through October 1986!! 

So do yourself a favor and grab this very RARE, exceptionally versatile, 1980s Factory Stamped Zildjian A 19" MEDIUM Ride!
