  • Well this is spectacular. One of the nicest Zildjians you will encounter.

  • At a damn-near-impossible-to-find only 1795 grams, this perfect 1950s Zildjian 20”’could have been the cymbal they modeled the modern AVEDIS Series after.

  • Very dark (even for this era,) incredibly sweet and soft stick attack. Extremely crashable with a lush wash. Deep golden brown patina that has built up over half-a-century, beautifully Hand Hammered.

  • Rippled surface.

  • One of the thinnest 20s” to survive the meat-fisted 1980s.  That alone is quite the feat.  

  • Aged 70 years.

  • Obviously a jazzer’s dream come true!  But not limited to that.  Incredible for anything! But I wouldn’t recommend slamming on it.

  • A studio, producer or session drummer should grab this. It sounds like it was plucked right off a Thelonious Monk album.

  • Not “pre-aged”, just aged.
