  • This is a hard to find cymbal - it’s an earlier 1960s 22” A that’s DRY sounding - much drier than most. It has a terrific half-century old patina that mellows and beefs up the stick articulation for such a big 22” A. 

  • I love 22s” from this era.  They’re harder to find but worth the search. They’re darker and smoother and lower-pitched than their smaller 20” brothers.

  • And that is exactly the case with this Vintage Zildjian 1960s 22”. 

  • What’s fascinating about this particular 60s 22” is that the stick articulation is strong and it’s pretty dry for a cymbal from this era.

  •  It’s like a 60s Dark Ping Ride or a K Heavy - but in a 60s A. 

  • The bell measures a generous 5.5” snd supplies a fantastic DING tone. Big 22” supplies a lot of playing real estate. 

  • 3538 grams gives it plenty of meat to punch through in an amplified setting but it’s much darker than any Ping Ride could hope to be. 

  • This is the perfect Classic Rock 60s DRIER Zildjian. 

  • Off course it’s perfect for rock but it’s darker and dry leanings make it sing in other genres. 

  • No issues. Fantastic shape. Wonderful deep patina. 

  • No need to spend $400 on a big box store new Zildjian. That’s ridiculous. 

  • Play the 60-year-old 60s Original for LESS money. It’s a lot more fun.
