  • Looking for an amazing sounding semi-dry slightly complex REAL DEAL VINTAGE Zildjian? Not a “Vintage homage” for $500 but the Real One! 

  • Well, here you go! This isn’t a heavy or Ping style Ride.  This beautiful 20” is 70 years old - it was forged when Charles Mingus was recording his seminal albums. 

  • Hell this Zildjian sounds like the it was the model they used to create the Avedis Series -  it it’s the real one. 

  • This beauty has the 50s stamp but everything about it (including the smaller center hole and lathing) looks and sounds like it’s from the 1940s. 

  • A fantastic weight at a perfect 2200 grams. 

  • Plays like the Zildjian Avedis Series  but as a 1950s Zildjian - more body and actually Hand Hammered. 

  • This 70-year-old Zildjian does it all - if you have a light touch, this 20” has a DRY stick attack that is mellowed naturally and fairly controlled. The wash is slightly complex and has a light, percolating complexity - classic Zildjian 1950s breathiness - but it’s very subtle. 

  • Crash on the edge for a billowing 20”’Full Crash tone.  Makes for a great RINGO white noise. 

  • It’s a killer sounding Mellow Semi-Dry Ride or huge crash. 

  • Semi-dry Main Ride. Left Side Mellow Crash Ride. This well over half-century-old Zildjian can occupy many positions on the field. Offers perfect crash accents when riding. 

  • Great shape. Fantastic golden brown patina that mellows it. No issues. 

  • Vintage As are always in style. And this 2200 gram beauty is the REAL DEAL!   

  • Don’t spend more money on the modern “vintage vibe” cymbals. Just get the real one for less.
