  • Here’s a CLEAN PLATINUM - the Original Black Label beauty from the 1980s and this one is the MELLOWEST I’ve heard.

  • 35-year-old Unique and fairly hard to find Zildjian Platinum 20”  Medium Ride from the mid to late 80s.

  • Resplendent Platinum Finish is shiny and clean! Strong logos.

  • Like a pre-cursor or older cousin to the A Custom.

  • What’s fascinating is that this specific 20” is the Lightest and most mellow version of this cymbal I have ever heard.  It has an “aaaaaaahhhhhhhhh” to it that makes it quite responsive and dynamic for this Rare series.  Have a listen!

  • Of course, it still has that famous Platinum SHIMMER that defined the series and was Zildjians top of the line Flagship in the 80s. 

  • High-end glassiness that cuts well.

  • 2453 grams gives it a great stick attack, but again, this one has a light, breathiness to it that makes it unique.

  • Of course, it’s terrific for rock and pop and louder applications, but it’s dynamic and surprisingly versatile!  It plays quite well in lower to medium volume settings.

  • Light patina and mild wear but overall great shape!  Clean for a 35-year-old Platinum.

  • A unique finish that Zildjian innovated.
