  • Here’s one of the cleanest 60s  Zildjians you’ll find. 

  • This is a fascinating Vintage 1960s 22” - it’s nowhere near your typical Zildjian 60s Ping Ride or Medium Ride. This 22” plays like a true LIGHT RIDE or MEDIUM THIN CRASH RIDE.

  • It has a light shimmer on top.  

  • This 22” actually sounds like it has rivets in it - even though it doesn’t. That’s what I mean - light and airy, shimmering tone.

  • It is one of the nicest sounding, complex, airy 22s” you will hear from the 1960s. Part of it is because this 50 years old 22” has a nice, umbrella-shaped profile that gives it a bit more spread than your average Medium Ride. It’s also very clean and offers a light crystalline shimmer. 

  • With a 2663 gram weight it lives in the Medium Thin Ride to Medium Crash range for a 22”, but it has a light, mellow dark attack that is followed by a soft and subtle, fairly complex wash.

  • What’s amazing is that you can play this big 22” very, very lightly and softly and it still sings.  The dynamic range on this one is amazing.

  • When you open up on it and crash, it unleashes a torrent of 1960s Medium Crash tone - perfect as a big 60s Crash, or great for Crash accents when you‘re playing at lower volumes and just need a punch.

  • Fantastic 6” bell is incredible for rock, but pull out to the plain and you have one hell of a great Light Jazz or Blues Ride.

  • Again, this is an incredibly versatile 22” - you don’t find a cymbal that can go from 1 - 10 and remain musical often. 
  • Incredibly CLEAN shape. No issues.  Unbelievably clean for a 50 year old cymbal.  

  • Wonderfully versatile 22” from the golden age of both rock and jazz.
