Zildjian’s newly designed 22” A Zildjian Swish Knocker, which features a smoother and sweeter “knock,” was inspired by the model Mel Lewis and his orchestra made famous at the Village Vanguard. The new A Zildjian Swish Knocker, which replaces the original model, has a slightly higher profile and a less curved cup. It also features 20 rivets and a legendary A Zildjian traditional finish.
