  • This 70-year-old Zildjian is the REAL DEAL Light Complex Ride with DARK leanings.  

  • It’s what the Avedis Series was striving for, but this one really IS Hand Hammered - it’s more musical than the Avedis Series.

  • And at only 1994 grams it’s THIN - it’s hard to find a 70 year old cymbal under a Medium weight.  Most were cracked during the hair metal bacchanalia of 1987. 
  • This particular 50s Zildjian A is overall dark sounding with a smooth and even complexity.  

  • It’s beautifully Hand Hammered and has a glowing subtle warmth underneath the light and lively stick attack.  

  • Broad spread that’s controlled naturally through a half-century old  dark patina 

  • Perfectly blends mellow and complex. 

  • It crashes incredibly well. The bell is solid for a thinner 70-year-old cymbal.  

  • And yet has a light and subtle control to it. 

  • No issues. Typical light center hole wear because someone played this beauty a lot back in 1968 because it’s a great one. We all have cymbal sleeves now so who cares. 

  • No need to chase the “vintage vibe” replicas trying to recreate what cymbal has been doing for over a century effortlessly.
