Here's a CLASSIC SOUNDING Zildjian!! This particular one is very SMOOTH and has a hint of complexity too! 

AND a new one will set you back $425!!!! 

And that's not the sale price! That's the guaranteed lowest price!!!

However there is simply NO NEED to spend ALL of that more than FOUR HUNDRED AND TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS!

It's not paperthin, but the edges do BEND a bit -- it plays soft  and feels lighter than the weight. It has a light, airy complexity to it - a pinch of liveliness. 

Offered up for your immense delight is this lovely WAY VINTAGE SOUNDING Zildjian 22" AVEDIS Ride Cymbal that is in TERRIFIC Condition.  Check out the pictures! Remarkably there are


nicks, cracks, dings or dents on this 22". It's in GREAT SHAPE!! VERY CLEAN with a few fingerprints and a light patina starting to build. 

Here's what Zildjian has to say about the AVEDIS 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!!!!

The weight is a glorious 2562 grams which ensures a very nice stick attack-but this beauty has a gorgeous, very, very, smooth and mellow almost glassy and slightly complex  wash that gives it balance and presence!!

Because of the Medium Thin weight this 22" actually plays like a huge, SOFT, CRASH RIDE.  Again, the stick attack is prominent on this 22" but it's not super dry, it's nice and defined--and the wash has a generous fullness to it. This particular 22" is more crashable than any Zildjian A Series 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. 

It plays like a well broken-in Zildian-softer than a modern A series or Armand for sure. And that's a damn nice thing on a big 22"!

This Zildjian Avedis 22" 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 22" Ride or Crash Ride.

And if you want a vintage sound from a modern cymbal then look no further. Zildjian hit a home run with these!!

So do yourself a favor and get this  Zildjian "Avedis" 22" Ride. And hang onto it. It really does sound like a Vintage A!
