  • Here’s a long discontinued Zildjian…the 18” CHINA LOW!

  • And this one is a Sizzle Swish! 

  • No Modern Zildjian sounds like this - this 18” is much lower-pitched, and infinitely more mellow than any newer Zildjian China.

  • The very low, almost FLAT profile gives this China Low a darker, lower-pitched tone and makes it a joy to ride on.  Almost flat playing surface.

  • Very exotic-sounding - if this were still around it would probably be in Zildjian’s effects or Oriental Series.

  • 1444 grams gives it a Medium Thin to Medium constitution, which is great because it has the combined feature of being both mellow and capable in louder settings. And that’s rare. 

  • A triangle of 3 brass rivets gives it a very responsive and rumbling glow.

  • The flat surface makes for easy riding - a la Mel Lewis. Perfect smaller alternate MELLOW SIZZLE RIDE.

  • Keeps a foot in exotic, vintage land!  But can still penetrate a modern mix.

  • Great condition. Aged 25 years.  Golden light patina. No issues.

  • You can’t get this Mellow Low 18” and definitely not as a Sizzle.
