  • 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
