1950s A. Zildjian 22" "Hollow Block" Ride Cymbal


Large Stamp Type I – Hollow Block

Drilled for 7 rivets, none installed.

No cracks or keyholing.

Edges in good shape. One small ding.

Sounds like Questlove's towel-covered ride cymbal on D'Angelo's "Chicken Grease".

This cymbal is an enigma. Dead. Every hit is a wash of confusion and intrigue. Dark patina suggest smoke damage. Sounds like its covered in gaff tape – except it's not. Light with some bend when crashed. 

This does not sound like a proper ride cymbal, but it's the perfect ride cymbal for someone out there. It's very weird and very fun to play. Go make records with this cymbal.
