Sorry but—-decided to keep it.

22” block stamp 50’s Zildjian ride with lots of nice hammering, 7 rivet holes, slight keyhole, no cracks. Just patina and other marks. (Sorry no recording).
Sounds great at 2537 grams. This could be someone’s Holy Grail at a nice medium thin weight. Nice bell, nice dark crash and good stick definition under a mild cushion of darker wash.
Send me a PM if interested.

Looks like a really good one! These are KILLER with rivets.
Indeed. I have a bunch of cymbals similar to this already, but I’m still tempted. This is a bargain.

If someone doesn’t already have a medium-thin 50’s A, they should get this yesterday.

I was lucky to find 2 of these Hollow Block large stamps in the past month - 2350 and 2735 gm. So I'm all set. The 2735 gm one completes my 18,20,22 set of medium weight large stamps. It's stamped "Medium Ride" as well.
The light one is almost old K-like in its darkness. Totally different than any other 22 I've ever played.
