A uniquely made vintage sizzle ride with 4 rivets. The photos show the wavy edge section that appears to be factory. It was a hand made cymbal No dings on the edge from dropping the cymbal.
The wave is smooth as well as the edge. Doesn't look like it was dropped or bent somehow. No other dings around the edge, no cracks, no key-holing or other defects. The stamp is 1 and 7/8 inches tall. The cymbal is from the 1950's.
It has a dark sound with slight sizzle. The cymbal crashes well and has some wobble. The cymbal weighs 2763 grams.I have a sound file link. Did the best I could filming with one hand.
As the name implies, the Large Stamp is the biggest stamp ever produced by Zildjian.
