BEHOLD...

Offered up for your immense delight is this lovely WAY VINTAGE SOUNDING, DARK, and wonderfully medium low pitched, Zildjian 20" AVEDIS Crash Ride Cymbal that is in AMAZING Condition.  Check out the pictures! Remarkably there are

NO

nicks, cracks, dings or dents on this 20". It's in GREAT SHAPE with a few fingerprints and light signs of use. That's it!! This cymbal looks about a three minutes old!  It's very clean! 

Here's what Zildjian has to say about their newest line:

"This new addition to the Zildjian “A” Family is a sonic recreation of the vintage "A" sound from the 1950's.  Each cymbal in this collection delivers immense musicality and features a thin, loose, played-in feel with a great balance of bright and dark overtones. 

We added a variety of intricate details to make this collection truly something special including its timeless, individual "aged" patina to the classy and understated "Avedis" logo, to the original hollow "Zildjian" logo underneath."

It truly does sound like a Vintage A, the attack is almost exactly the same as you'd find on an equal weight 50s/60s/70s Vintage Zildjian.  And that "Aged" finish sure does look nice and mellow out the vibe!!!!

 And again, this specific AVEDIS is pretty DARK!

The weight is a THIN 1912 grams which ensures a lovely, billowing wash that floats off stage. Because of the thin-ish weight this 20" actually plays like a big, DARK CRASH RIDE.  Again, the wash is prominent on this 20", but it doesn't overpower the lovely attack, nice and defined--and the wash has a generous fullness to it. This particular 20" is more crashable than a "Rock Ride" yet it still has the definition and projection of a medium thin  weight-ed cymbal. And when you shoulder it it unleashes a glorious OLD SCHOOL type of wash - Beatles-ish all day!

The bell measures 5.5" and is definitely strong enough for "the latin thing", and even blues, rock and funk. The overall pitch of this Zildjian is medium low. 

It plays like a broken in Zildjian - softer than a modern A series or Armand for sure, and consideraby darker and more responsive!

This Zildjian Avedis 20" is a workhorse cymbal.  PERFECT for classic rock, pop, country, funk, fusion, R&B, definitely soul, blues, big band, swing, live situations and anytime you need a well balanced Zildjian 20" Ride or Crash Ride.

And if you want a vintage sound from a modern cymbal then look no further.

And this particular one is one of the nicer ones I've heard! AND it's VERY CLEAN!! There's NO NEED TO SPEND FULL PRICE AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO SACRIFUCE TONE OR CONDITION! 

So do yourself a favor and get this fairly dark sounding, 1912 gram 2016 Zildjian "Avedis" 20" Crash Ride. And hang onto it. It really does sound like a dark Vintage A!
