What We Think

This is a hard to find and definitely NO LONGER MADE Zildjian K 20" Jazz Ride that is in EXCELLENT condition! Remarkably there are NO nicks, cracks, dents, or dings on this 20". It's in GREAT SHAPE with a light patina. With a weight of 2199 grams this K Jazz Ride has a very light and airy tone with a great warm K wash. It's not obscenely dark and is well balanced--not super dry and not too full. The pitch is medium and the bell is very solid and cuts exceptionally well.

 

Manufacturer's Description from Zildjian

Legend. Legacy. The innovative cymbal work of Art Blakey, Elvin Jones, Tony Williams or any one of a sweeping collection of the greatest drummers in history. They've all been fueled by K Zildjian cymbals. The deep, dry and shimmering sounds developed by Kerope Zildjian in 19th Century Turkey continue to inspire drummers today. Elaborate hammering and lathing work our secret alloy into versatile cymbals with a wide-ranging blend of high and low frequencies that can be mellow or intense.
