For your extreme viewing and listening pleasure is this wonderful and rare vintage 19" K Zildjian Istanbul Old Stamp IIIb (1953-56) ride cymbal. This cymbal, like most old Ks, is slightly under-sized by 1/16", and weighs in at an extremely svelte and sought after holy grail weight of 1706g. You can clearly see where the stamp is from the bottom of the cymbal. It is quite simply one of the most exquisite and buttery 19" old Ks we have ever laid stick to. It is extremely responsive to the most subtle of nuances in your touch, yet maintains an authoritative woody stick click which majestically coasts atop a luscious, mysterious cascading wash. The bell is extremely complex and musical, and is everything one could want from a vintage 19" old stamp K bell. Cosmetically, the cymbal is in collectors condition, with no cracks, no bends, no warping, no flea bites, and nice hole. This special investment grade, heirloom quality instrument would be right at home amongst the finest of collections, studios, and stages. Enjoy!
