- WELL HOLY HELL!! LOOK AT THIS!!!
- A RARE ZILDJIAN K CONSTANTINOPLE PHILLY JOE JONES RIDE!
- IMMACULATE CONDITION TOO!
- AND THE HANDIWORK IS GORGEOUS!! Look at that 6" HUGE BELL that looks like it was borrowed from an Istanbul K! No markings on the front give it a perfect Vintage Zildjian look!
- And at an auspicious 2142 grams, this beauty delivers a terrific stick attack!
- “PHILLY JOE JONES 20” written under the bell. This particular one has razor thin edges too.
- Zildjian describes this unique cymbal as:
"A modern take on the classic ride cymbal used by the legendary jazz drummer Philly Joe Jones. This has a traditional finish, great stick articulation, a wide bell, and a warm sound."
- There ya go!!
- This 20" K Constantinople Philly Joe Jones Ride plays like a fantastic sounding Thin to Medium Thin K Constantinople with a bit more presence - compliments of that WIDE BELL.
- As promised, the stick articulation is outstanding, especially for a K Cons. The tone is semi-dark, fairly smooth, but with all that K Cons hammering there's a lively complexity that floats around the cymbal.
- It projects quite well without being overbearing.
- And of course that wide, OLD SCHOOL, 6" bell is solid enough for "the latin thing" and even louder music.
- Exceptionally BALANCED. Medium to Medium-low pitch, responsive, glowing, FANTASTIC STICK DEFINITION with a light complexity underneath.
- A felicitous tribute to one of the greatest drummers of the last 100 years!
- THIS ZILDJIAN PHILLY JOE JONES IS A COLLECTORS DREAM!! Perfect shape
