  • A very DARK Lower-pitched, fairly complex-sounding Sizzle Ride!  It’s has a broad spread with both highs and lows present.  Crashing on it brings out the lower notes - it’s pretty damn thin, making it very crash-able.

  • This is not your typical Zildjian 2500 grams Medium Ping style Rock Ride.

  • The weight is ONLY 1965 grams.   The profile is LOW and that no doubt contributes to this cymbal’s darker leanings and lower pitch. 

  • And it’s surprisingly complex for a lower-pitched cymbal - there’s a definitive SMOKINESS to this Thin Dark Sizzle Ride.

  • Primed for 8 rivets and currently outfitted with ALL old-timey rivets making this 50-year-old Sizzle remarkably responsive.

  • Dark Main Ride. Left Side Semi-Complex Crash Ride, big old school DARK crash.  This 1960s Thin Dark Sizzle is a beautiful instrument that is not your typical 1960s cymbal.  You’ll have to paw through piles of cymbals to find one like this.

  • Great shape with a gorgeous patina. Very light center hole wear (because someone played this beauty a lot because it’s a gorgeous one!)

  • A stunning Dark Complex Sizzle. The kind of cymbal Zildjian keeps trying, but failing to capture.
