nicks, cracks, dents or dings on this 60 year old Zildjian. Just a nice golden patina that has befriended it and helps mellow it out a bit.

Old School lathing and craftsmanship on this 60 year old Zildjian. 

OLD SCHOOL RIVETS TOO!! And this 18" has a nice large bell that gives it a great broad spread. And the edges this beauty are pretty thin too which give it a great blurring shimmer. 

And this specific 18" is mellow and smooth sounding. Very nice and musical. Like an old recording. Super sizzzzzly!!

Weighing in at a lovely 1586 grams this Vintage Zildjian plays like aMedium Thin Light Crash Ride Sizzle. The tone is smooth and subtly bright but it still has a MELLOW vibe to it. It glows without instead of being brash and obtrusive like some cymbals can be. 

It plays like a thinner weighted that was plucked out of a Columbia Jazz RECORDING! 

And being a smaller 18" size the overtones and volume remain manageable and controlled.

As you can see this 18" is outfitted with primed for 6 and currently outfitted with ALL 6 old school rivets. Take them out for increased definition or leave them in for that glorious rain on the roof vibe. I would leave it exactly as it is-it sounds incredible. Really light and sizzly! And it's been this way for decades! 

You can use this 60+ year old Zildjian for whatever your heart's desire. It's a terrific Sizzle Ride for small combo settings or a perfect alternate Left Side Crash Ride for bigger setups! 


Whatever you decide do yourself a favor and grab this Vintage 1960s Zildjian 18" LIGHT Crash Ride Sizzle.
