  • Here’s a beautiful dark but controlled Zildjian:

  • Absolutely stunning and truly HAND HAMMERED 60-year-old 18” Vintage Zildjian Light Crash Ride in terrific shape.   Don’t get some big box store “vintage homage” “redesign” when you can get the original! 

  • This 18” makes the perfect complement to a 20” or 22.  Crashable. Rideable. Dark but also controlled. 

  • Weighing in at perfect 1554 grams this 18” offers a simply fantastic stick attack - it has a 6-decade old patina that dries this Zildjian out beautifully. 

  • Semi-dry, medium-low to low in pitch. Super mellow and focused. Aged particularly well with a pinpoint stick attack and hints of darkness. 

  • Good definition and penetration but still remains controlled and mellow. The very solid bell for an 18”.   

  • Crash on it for a very full and loud Ringo-style white noise or accent. It’s FULL when you lay into it and is fairly dark too. 

  • Small combo Semi-dry Ride or Left Side Crash Ride to accompany your main Ride, or big 18” Dark Crash. 

  • Whatever you decide this 1950s Hand Hammered Zildjian can occupy many positions on a kit.

  • A Vintage A from around the time of Miles’ Kind of Blue is quite a nice Zildjian!

  • And it’s actually Hand Hammered!
