- A few eagle-eyed Cymbalholics may indeed recognize this mythological brass gryphon!
- Yes indeed, the Loch Ness Monster of Zildjian Signature Rides! The Marvin “Smitty” Smith PROTOTYPE RIDE.
- It’s unlathed and DRY with a blackened raw surface on top and bottom - like a K Custom Dry Light 22” meets a THIN Earth Ride!
- 2835 grams gives this One-off Zildjian Custom made 22” a very dry stick attack followed by a hi t of light, organic complexity but overall it remains very dry. 2 brass rivets lend a subtle glow sizzle. Take them out for an even drier wash but this 22” sounds amazing right now. I’d leave them in.
- UNLATHED surface but with a raw, earthen finish Large, DEEP K Custom golf-ball-sized hammering on this Prototype.
- Very solid, unlathed, unhammered 6” bell slices through a band mix - maybe like The Tonight Show Band even.
- As versatile as the man who inspired it - Marvin had to cover EVERY genre on The Tonight Show. And this rare beauty is the tool for that!
- Great condition.
- Zildjian NEVER released it! But you can still have it!
- Definitely playable. Definitely collectible!
