Regular price $1,200.00
VINTAGE EXCELLENT Zildjian K Istanbul New Stamp 18" Sizzle Crash/Ride Cymbal
- Vintage Cymbal. 1960-1967era.
- Excellent condition K Istanbul Crash/Ride with factory rivets. The cymbal has one surface scratch which has been on the cymbal since its birth, and was a by product of the hand lathing and hand hammering process used to make these cymbals. The cymbal produces a light and delicate stick sound when used as a ride, and bursts into a beautiful crash when struck on the edge. It is completely at home in both the crash and ride application.
- This beautiful K Istanbul was hand picked at the old Gretsch Brooklyn New York factory by Phil Grant for the prominent Jazz drummer, vintage collector, and Cincinnati local, Ron Enyard, who has been the cymbals one and only owner. Ron can be found in Rob Cook's "The Gretsch Drum Book" on page 129, and sports an impressive resume of playing with artist such as Woody Shaw, Herb Ellis, Charlie Rouse, Al Kiger, Gordon Brisker, Kenny Poole, and Josh Breakstone.
- This cymbal is part of a collection of K Istanbul Cymbals, some of which have been played frequently, and some of which have not been played but a few times and are by definition "NEW OLD STOCK". Each cymbal was balanced and matched with an appropriate top at the Gretsch Brooklyn factory, making each set a true purposeful matching pair.
- *This is a vintage instrument and subject to the "marks" of K Istanbul manufacturing such as semi irregular cymbal holes and lathing scratches that are not blemishes, but rather a product of a process that was done completely by hand. Not all cymbals of this era will fit current cymbal stand and hi-hat stand cup/thread diameters*
- *Used and vintage cymbals are on display in our showroom and have been owned by a previous owner. Cymbal may show fingerprints or stick marks from being tested and demoed, or other signs of wear that have been noted in the description such as cracks, keyholes, ect. Used and vintage cymbals are non-returnable items.*
