For sale my 22" Spizzichino Ride Cymbal that was made by the late (& some would say THE greatest cymbal-smith of modern times) Roberto Spizzichino.

This is a very rare 're tempered, re hammered 'TW' ride cymbal'. It weighs 2316g and has just a nice amount of 'wobble' when played.

Effectively he took a finished cymbal and put it back it the furness, then hammered & finished it again. This makes for a hard cymbal with tons of 'stick' when you play it. It also gives the cymbal a very unusual broken lathe pattern. These are very rare and collectible instruments as Roberto only ever made very few of them. He also added his legendary 'patina' finish which gives it a more vintage look and sound.

Roberto also drilled it for 6 rivets for me although I've only ever played it with three rivets installed (which I think sounds perfect). It also has his signature and date engraved on it. Factory stamp on the front although difficult to bring out in the photos.

Looking for $1,650




I am in Scotland Uk but will ship overseas free

Any other questions please ask. Thanks for looking.
